I have never expected high scores for his languages but he needs to achieve at least 65% for EL and 70% for CL, am I right? Or is it ok not to achieve this baseline standard for promotion? It will be quite demoralising if he is kicked out of GEP. For him to get 65% overall for EL, he will have to score about 80% for the next 2 ct, which is very challenging for him. I think I will be irresponsible if I still leave everything to the teacher and do nothing. Anyway, the EL teacher will send him for remedial class next term.

i was looking thro' the notes i've taken down when i attended the parents briefing at the beginning of the year, and this was what i have jotted down: baseline - overall 70%, chinese 50%, EL 65%

Agreed. Up till now, I think it's quite safe to peg the EL standard to P6.
