my son say compo is quite okay. The paper is easier than his Prelim but he got brain freeze. He thot he missed out the cloze passage which is 15 marks; I almost faint then I went round checking with his classmates to find out the content to help him recall. Phew, he finally remember doing that page :rant:

I asked my girl, yes, dolphin is compre and cloze is about theft/robbery.

As someone here mentioned compre tricky, I asked her difficult or not. She said easy, & short answer.

Yes, she did pass year papers, and are relatively easier than her sch papers.

Hope she can do well as her languages are better than Maths & Science.

My boy found it easy. One girl didn't turn up coz she had just come down with dengue fever. Poor thing. Another has to skip the PSLE altogether -- had two fingers on his right hand (his writing hand) severed when a door slammed shut (his fingers were in the gap). Last my kid heard, he was undergoing an operation to stitch them back to his hand.
