SA1 blues :(

SA1 blues :(

Postby dramamama70 » Thu May 12, 2011 11:28 am

I have three kids who are in the midst of their SA1 exams (sec 4 NA, p6 and p3). All of them last night told me they couldn't finish their papers. DD1 said she couldn't complete her last Math question, DS said he just didn't know how to answer the last two math questions (7 marks total) and DD2 said she couldn't finish the last math word problem question.

My kids have studied so hard the last couple of months - been diligently doing their homework and revisions (with me and DH) so my heart is broken that them doing their best is still not good enough :(

I just hope they don't get discouraged (although to be honest, I am getting VERY discouraged). *sob sob*

They said some of their classmates also had problems completing the paper. Aiya, this brings up the perennial question - why make the exam paper so difficult? Sigh.

Have you signed the petition here?

Anyway, I believe these days in all exams they will have 1-2 tough questions to pick out the outstanding kids, so the way is to minimize careless errors on those questions doable....

I have signed and promoted it on my facebook. A couple of friends who saw my facebook status have said they will either be signing it or have done so. I must say I have my own reservations about online petitions but like I told a facebook friend, if we don't try, we won't know!
