Can tell he is starting to get demoralise. Thot get him a tutor to improve his grade and boost up his confidence cos I cannot teach EL.
There's 2 parts to EL CT. Cloze and Compre. My DS' GE English grades has always been a dismal marginal pass since P4 despite being an avid reader. I think they need a lot of practice and exposure to such passages. So I let him practice just the cloze passages from the past year top school exam papers (just print that page out from all the schools). For a start, you could guide him through the cloze as well as teach him how to draw references from the passage. For me, it really helped a lot - his CT results for cloze alone went from 8/15 to 12-13/15. No harm trying it during this June school hols. All the best.
