P5 subject banding

Postby in moments like this » Fri Sep 18, 2009 8:57 am

My boy is in P5 this year...and will be facing subject banding this year. In my own view, P5 is the most tedious year in the Primary levels. And now with this subject banding adding in... :? ...oh my....more fuel to the stress.

Different sch set different standard papers. If a child failed in the paper set by a high standard sch and that will land him to a foundation subject in P6. But what if he is in other sch?? The situation will be diff... :?

P5 is usually the "make or break" year for many kids in Math. There is a quantum jump in the level of difficulty for math. Many kids hate math after that. Good to pay special attention.

P4 the parents can voice out for their kids. But when end of P5, the school will make the final decision based on the results of the kid.

Every schools set different standards..if a child fails in this sch and that doesn't mean he will fail if he is in other sch. So where is the balance key in this banding??
