exams/competitions/workshops for PSLE

Postby ga2004 » Tue Jan 19, 2010 1:59 pm

hi All,

My daughter is in PSLE. i would like to know when and how to track these competitions/exams/workshops for maths/science and any others that come up during the year.

I know some are from schools that they get to participate. Is there any additional quiz/competitions where she can participate? I understand all this makes a difference in their Secondary school entrance.

we do routine PSLE classes; coaching, usual exam preparation and PSLE revision.

There is no truth that participating in tough Maths competitions or attending a one-day workshops means guaranteed A* for PSLE. These are just forms of enrichment to gain wider perspectives.

Our A* students scored A* for Maths and Science because of consistent hard work, well planned revisions and intelligent practices and studying smart for PSLE exam. Most of all, don't get burnt out and overly stressed by over-participating in competitions and workshops, but rather do routine diagnostic tests to check that the student is well prepared during a major exam. :D
