A lot of parents were giving feedback about the jump from p4 to p5 in Mathematics and Science. Science doesn't differ much in terms of topics but the student is required to explain his/her answers to a certain extent and it can be practiced through various revision questions and not just regurgitate. Please also understand English plays a part here too when one is trying to express opinions.nonKiasu wrote:Hi. My ds are finishing their P4 this year. Reading this thread is scary. Is it really a must to have tuition in both Math and Sci in P5?

As for Mathematics, the topics differ to a certain extent from the previous years but can be taught, understood and relate to each other once the student grasped the foundational concepts. And practice is the magic word here. However, I prefer to prepare my students to be exam smart and understand what the question wants before even attempting to answer the question.

Hope it helps.
