not sure if it is good to share this ... wondering if this will cause some kiasu parents to be even more kiasu!! :)

IP school NUSH allows students to accelerate if the kids have the abilities.
For example, Y1 kids who know sec 1 & 2 math well may be promoted to Y2 math or even higher (but for other subjects, they remain in Y1 if they are not as good in the other subjects); Y1 kids who are good at chemistry may be promoted to a higher level too. Y5 or Y6 kids may be offered university modules fr NUS etc... very flexible according to kids' abilities.

Are students in NUS High, expected to acclerate ? Out of 100 percent students, for Y1 or Y2 students, how many percent actually do accelerate ?
Accelerate in what subjects ?

What
happen to those who do not accelerate, just follow the normal pace ? Are they considered lousy anongst their peers, just because they dont accelerate ?

Accelerate in what subjects ? [Any subject]

What happen to those who do not accelerate, just follow the normal pace ? [Yes; the normal NUSH syllabus which is already tougher than the Express O level.]
Are they considered lousy anongst their peers, just because they dont accelerate ? [Of course not!! Those selected by NUSH are talented in certain aspect!]

What's the difference between a full day school and a half day school?

The term has started! Time to restart the engine, who knows where to find past year IP papers?
