When do the children take these tests? P1 or older?

Usually P3, but I know of 2 girl school whose students take just the English test at P2. And some schools opt out of this test too. So it really depends on the school.

hi,
Would like to know if anyone has registered their kids for this year's competition. I have not received any info from my kids' school yet.

Just thinking , are UNSW papers still relevant for Secondary Schools?

From my kids' experience, the performance in these papers ( particularly Eng, Writing and Science ) might give a fairly good indication of how the kid does in PSLE. But does it still apply in Secondary Schools?

Ds got participation in MathSci in pri but A* in PSLE MS. He got distinctions in MathSci at sec. Dont think gd UNSW results mean gd PSLE results.
Fren's dd has participation in all her UNSW pp but she got A* in PSLE EMSC. Her sec UNSW is oso stated as participation.
My kids' certs are sitting at home, collectg dust mostly lol.

Hi all,

I urgently need UNSW past year paper. Anyone knows where I can buy UNSW past year paper? Can I download online or buying the softcopy? Or is it only sold in hardcopy? Thanks

Hi Zakashi

I am not sure of the benefit of taking UNSW paper. From P2 onwards, children can take the paper. English & Maths, As for p3 science is included. Normally the kids can take the exam in their schools. Normally, the kid's school will give out the forms. Thank you.
