Re: Secondary School CCA

Another note, eg. even if you do not have Leadership pts, it is possible to get maximum pts in other areas and obtain a distinction in CCA. Ok, thats good to know, which means no need to gain points under each of the LEAPS. :smile: Yes you are correct. Therefore, like what phankao say, if a child h...

Re: Life after 2011 PSLE

For trainwow since it's using skype need ADSL right ? Those using cable modem or fibreoptic network can use right ? sorry, what's adsl? I'm not computer savvy. :oops: I suppose any internet can.

Re: Life after 2011 PSLE

Hi vsk, your child still with the online (skype) tuition? My ds started it last Feb while in P6. The teaching style suits him and he loved the classes. We are now continuing through in Sec 1. Wonder if they were 'classmates' last year, haha? Yes, Ds is still with Trainwow for sec 1. They are quite ...

Re: Life after 2011 PSLE

What about English, Chinese & Science for DS2 (P4)? Any recommendations? DS1 attended English at TLL and Chinese at Jiang Lao-shi last year (P6) only. Before then, he did not have any tuition at all, as he is quite an independent learner. But DS2... Sigh!!! English - I heard from friends that Morri...

Re: School of Science and Technology

[quote="Alchemist Hi Bbee - Glad to know your DS is settling in well into his new school. My son is ok at his present school - so far so good. I think he has tried to put SST behind him in order to commit to his new school - which I think was quite good. I was quite surprised he actually likes the ...

Re: School of Science and Technology

Only one lucky student got in this year. Bbee - your son wants to try again Sec3 - amazing. I asked my son to try as well - but currently he says he will not. Hi Alchemist, that's how strongly my ds feels for SST :smile: But not sure if he will change his mind later on. He's enjoying himself at his...

Re: School of Science and Technology

quote] We're not the extremely lucky one who got in for 2012 batch. My son got in the 2011 batch (7 places that year). Wonder which is tougher competition - DSA or post-PSLE. Dsa is very tough because you are competing with so many candidates, whereas post-psle really depends on vacancies available...
