iCGPA - Too Little, Too Late?

The Ministry of Higher Education is planning to create more holistic and employable students with a new grading model: intergrated Cummulative Grade Point Average (iCGPA). The iCGPA will take soft skills such as leadership and problem solving into account when grading students. Will this initiative be able to solve the unemployment crisis amongst graduates, or will students and lectures alike fail to adapt to this new system?

This is a report by Heng Wei Ann.
