Every exam is too tough. No exam is too easy.
Get on with it.

I think having exams is still good. An opportunity to test the minds of the young ones. But the problem lies in the over emphasis of examination results. Student are type-casted and streamed at too early an age.

Wow, sounds tough...
But yet I think English composition is really gd for the creativity, language and communication skills of kids. Perhaps at Pri 1, the compositions seem nearly impossible or outrageous but I guess if a school is able to give adequate training/lessons (e.g. writing descriptions of pictures) to the kids, they should be able to handle it. In fact, this helps balance that "memorization" aspect of Sg's education system and would help alot in the development of the child. If one thinks about it, if a kid/person has strong language skills, the pace of understanding/learning either via a teacher's lesson or self-study from books in any other topic (taught in English) can be much greater.
Perhaps the composition part early on in Pri school can account for just a small percentage of the final marks (e.g. 5%) to 'reveal' the kids with a flair or writing potential?
I definitely don't agree with overloading kids in the their education. However, I believe some programs can actually assist in nuturing them in their skills so long as the kids are not pressured into working like mad on this. Maybe an alternative could be to have a bonus "5~10%" in marks but still have the paper be upon 100. So you can choose to capture this portion of marks or not (i.e. work harder); but yet allow still those who don't do the composition part the chance to score 100%.
Just my 2cts...
