Keep or Throw?

Postby westmom » Sat Oct 09, 2010 1:43 pm

Hi..Need advice here. Do I keep my gal's Sec 1 textbooks/revision books/assessment books or give them away? Do we need it to revise for "O" levels? Especially subjects like Geography/History/Sciences...will the topics be tested for "O" levels just like P3/4/5 Science topics are tested for PSLE?

I think for Geo and Science, better keep. Esp Science, I heard from dd, that when they in year 4, they would be tested year 1 to 4 stuffs.

What about history, Daisyt? Do we need to keep that too? Will they be tested on the subjects they learned in sec 1 later?

History are studied in Sec 1 and 2. Its better to keep. And in Sec 3, if the schools have the policy of choosing subjects combination, and your child is not interested in choosing History, then you can throw away by then.
