all these years, they are sitting for school exams...but psle is the exam taken by p6s from all the primary schools in Singapore. education is a long journey, and this exam shouldn't be viewed as the end of the world even if kid didn't perform well this time. even fruits on the tree do not ripen at the same time.
good luck to all the kids and parents. it's January...go easy and don't burn out the child. premature intensive pushing will go to waste if the brain is burnt out.
More like me burning out trying not to burn him out!!!!
But seriously, I am not pushing DS at all...I told him to take it just like any other year...only that the work is harder and he got to put in a bit more effort to master it.
I dunno about the rest but my DS seems to suddenly be in PSLE mode. It's like a button has been switched on and he knows that he's got to buck up. Obviously this does not necessarily translate to stellar marks ...he may be missing the point on quality vs quantity.
