there has been a re-emphasis on attitude, on top of the grades they achieved......attitude is also one of promotion criteria

expected that my ds may fail EL as he got about 60% for the 2 mock tests before the ct. However, did not expect him to fail so badly.

His ct results:

EL - less than 45%
SS - 60+%
HCL - 60+%
Maths - > 90%
Science - > 90%

Failed the baseline standard for 3 of the 5 subjects. Really worried.....

Don't be disheartened, if you show it, your child will be discouraged too.

From his results, you can tell that he is strong in Maths and Science.

For EL, other than writing more and doing much longer write-ups, the compre passages are definitely much longer and there more inferencing questions too. Also, presentation skills seem to be important too. Your child may be not used to such changes yet.

With time and practice, he will become better.

hi 8228,
I'm no expert but if he hasn't started reading the bks on the reading list, june hols are here and it's time to start. If you're unable to coach him, get him a tutor or sign up with the learning lab.

I borrowed about 10 books in the booklist from library before and he read only one just for the project. He already has a EL tutor.

Reading is very important for learning and improving the languages. For my ds' case, he loves to read English story books but not Chinese so the results ........ matches :|

If you have attended the GEP briefing in last Nov, they told parents not to expect high score in GEP and not to get them to tuition but let the school GEP teachers teach the GEP kids ... :?
