Exams Blues or Fever

Postby Guest » Sat May 01, 2010 4:41 pm

Is anyone feeling blues or fever about SA1?

Actually I don't feel much because we are still at honeymoon levels of school but I can see people around me walking in brisk footsteps to get home when they pick up the kids. Dialogue exchanges become shorter.

I am wondering what I can do for my child, buy essence of chicken?

Besides worrying and feeling stressed, we know we can't help much since we are not the ones sitting for the exam.

Actually, everyone is having exam blues and fever and are busy hovering over our children to make sure they study... that's why it's so quiet these days :)

it is impt if there is year end 'streaming' in to top few classes.
it is impt cos it gives the kid a feel good factor if he does well.
it (SA1) is impt cos it wakes up the kid (and parent) if he does not do well.
it is impt cos it is the only time your kid gets to do very well cos as the level progresses, the syllabus gets harder.
but compare to PSLE, no, not important ba :wink:

At last ksi started this......DS1 do have CA, SA1.....throughout the year. In P2, the so called Honeymoon year, i still feel the pre exam fever and worried will be having post exam fever, like last year..... :cry: Waiting for the results is no joke leh, especially when DS1 always tell me," So easy.....", this makes me worried more :roll:

As compared with last year, I am "dealing"(the only way to comfort myself) better this year. I have been trying to :siam: , but still gotta face it....

Starting from mid march, i have been giving past year papers from the top schools for DS1 to do. To date, still quite a pile left :P His written paper starts on 2nd week of May, so still have time to do a few more :evil: But i won't be giving him last minute (1 day before exam) to do, which turned out quite bad for him during his last SA1. As for physical preparation, drink more water than usual, and his usual cod liver oil to keep his immune, and try to boil "cooling herbal tea" for everyone to bring down the hot temperature, and lastly not forgetting the sufficient sleep/rest to boost his concentration!!

Daddies, Mummies, Work Hard for OUR :P SA........
