Every year when it comes to theory exams I just send my kid for a 5 day crash course workshop, so much more cost and time efficient rather than sending them for a whole year of classes. And it's funny because they end up doing better since they don't start to hate it because of the drag and bore.
Didn't know such crash courses exists. It's amazing they can train a kid to ace the theory exam in just 5 days. I guess these workshops only works for older kids with higher level of self motivation.

My girl took the theory exam in October. Anyone has idea when the results will be out?
You can definitely send your kid for crash courses, I do believe it's more effective than regular weekly lessons. Not every teacher will do it because they rather earn 1-year's worth of lesson fees than 1-week at a higher intensity level. But I have to add that it is as much the teacher's ability to teach as well as the student's willingness to learn and absorb the knowledge at a fast pace.

I coached a primary 5 boy from Grade 0 to Grade 5 theory in 7 months. We didn't do an intense crash course week, rather, we did weekly 1-hour sessions and covered the content for 5 grades in 6 months. The last month was used for taking past-year papers. I was fortunate to have a very cooperative student who put in the effort weekly to do his homework, and graduated with a Merit :)

No. Not stressful was only 7? Don't think they know about stress

For those who took the ABRSM Theory Exam this year, may I ask if the results should be out on Monday 18-Nov? Thanks in advance.
