JC1 Promo over ..... what's the holiday plan?

Postby whizzard » Thu Oct 16, 2014 9:46 am

With a breath of relief, the JC1 promo is finally over. My son has passed all his subjects and will be promoted to JC2. He improved on some of his subjects but did less well in some other subjects. More importantly, I think the process has made its point ..... that the subjects he studied hard for, he did well and those which he cramped, he did not do as well.

What are the holiday plans for your JC1 kids now that the promo exams are over and done with?

A long nice holiday to take a break from the stress of adjusting to JC workload? CIP project? Revision classes?

We are going for a nice family holiday to de-stress ..... I don't know whether it is for him or for us parents!! I hope to use the "captive time" together during the holiday to motivate and pump him up for the tough and arduous journey next year.

Average 5 hours of sleep or less. And we stay near school. I wonder how it is for those staying far from school.
