P6 School Exam Result

Postby sally » Mon Mar 09, 2009 9:40 am

Hi

My boy got his English result for SA1 back on Fri. A shock for him, myself & my husdand for the 1st time he score 61/100. This is the first time his score so low usually his score 80 & abt. A draft check with his friend in another class seem like many of them score around the same.

When I get him to do the last year paper for his school & other schools he still score around 80+.

Is this very common? Worry PSLE is 7 mths away.

thank.

It seems like a strategy played by schools, nowadays. These schools, including mine, like to mark the students result down in CA1 and SA1, so you get panic and study hard subsquently or engage tuition. You may realise in CA2 and SA2, the students results become better. This also shows "making continuous improvement"

Find out the school average or class average score to determine where your child stands. Don't panic unnecessarily because many schools are using this "scare" tactic. I do not rely on the "score" but rather the school average or class average score to gauge my daughter's performance. She is in P6 too. My target to her is like "xx" marks above the average score (and increase a bit in each term) and not looking at the actual score itself.

I agree with ApronMama. School these days usually raise their standand up so as to get the pupils be on their toes. My boy is in P6 too. Questions set by the school is often very tough as compared to the P6 pass year papers. Focus on the performance and improvement and support the weakness. Good luck to all our P6 warrior!!
