Tuition centres w vdifficult entry tests/require high scores

Postby tragicurlyhip » Fri Dec 02, 2011 3:07 pm

Hi anyone knows which are the tuition centres with very difficult entry tests your child has to sit before he can enter, and/or those which require very high grades before he can register?

Thanks!

tuition is to help weaker students right??

the world has changed...

not only limited to that anymore, it also helps KS parents to train their kids to stand out among the A* kids.... and these are the ones that usually charge higher but yet hard to get in....

tuition has gone beyond just to help those with grade B or C to A...

All my limbs are not enough to agree! I do not believe in those centres with high rate of good results because they took in mostly the better students, so that doesn't mean they are so good! If the centre is accepting any students and mostly students who are really poor in the subjects and they are able to help these students score well, then, this centre is really superb!

I thk those with the tests don't call or mkt themselves as 'tuition centers'. They call themselves 'enrichment centers'.
