Depending on the school you're in, sometimes parents in 'Top Schools' are so demoralised, but your child's 'B' is a national 'A' in PSLE. vice versa, in a less academically focused school, your child may apparently be top student, but only 'high A' in PSLE. External exposure in a class gives your child a bigger insight on national bench-marking.



So reality is u're saying can't do without tuition right? :gloomy:

or could be due to lack of time, to revise

DS P5 SA1 results dropped 10-15 marks across all subjects compared to P4. Is this normal?
Is it realistic to hope that results can improve back 10-15 marks by SA2?

It seems quite common for a bigger-than-usual drop from P4 to P5 SA1.
The good news is that most students will get used to the more stringent marking schemes and recover some of that by SA2.

Come secondary school, go for 'exposure' for 7-8 subjects just for the sake of benchmarking, ok? :wink:

Guess we know in advance so not much shock. on a lighter note, my gal told me her kaki strategise how to present the papers to parents to manage shock :lol:

Some cried, because they had failed P5 SA1 Maths / Science.

Others cried, because their grade dropped from 90+ (P4 SA2) to 60+ (P5 SA1)

:cry: :cry:
DD's SA1 results is back
P4 to P5
Eng : 81 drop to 69
MT: 70 drop to 66
Sci : 66 to 73.5
Maths : 72 drop to 41
Really caught me by surprise. Didn't expect her to fail Maths when she been coping well with her 1st CA1 and normal practice paper.
Sigh... don't know if she can improve for SA2. Was still thinking of go DSA next year.

I guess getting some ideas during ptm on how is the kid faring among the rest at the same level may be helpful.
