Does anyone know if we can take the UNSW papers externally? To be honest, I wasn't enthusiastic enough previously and opted my Pri 3 DS out of the papers and now then I realised that they could be useful. :sad:

Congrates Miracle Child!

How old is your child?
Your child's school signed up for all the subjects by the school?

My son's school only signed him up for Math. How do the school select which subject to sign up for?

Thanks

I have checked with UNSW before, only can be taken through their school.
maybe you can call them to check again.

Thanks, thanks.

My DS is in P3. I am not sure how the school selects the subjects. DS just brought home forms for all 3 subjects and we signed him up for all of them as DS said he was keen.

Perhaps you may wish to ask the school the basis in preparation for next year....I didn't know there was creative writing until I read from this forum...DS is also very keen in story writing.

Thanks for your reply! I guess I will ask the school. I am a lazy mum, whatever "extra" test, I opted out. Likewise for tuition. Sigh.

My son's school only provide the form for Math. I was hoping they have more subjects to allow the kids to try it out.

Your DS sounds like a bright and hard working boy!
