Attitude is one subjective criteria and like what you say, it depends on the chemistry between the child and the teacher. If your child is in the wrong book with the teacher, die lah! All of us went through our school life will have at least one of this kind of encounter. Well, take it as a life skill learning for the child.


I think the criteria is more for from primary to secondary...

Can anyone advise whether if the kids miss the common test due to MC, does your school allow them to re-take the test?

My dd missed 2 CT papers. And she told me that teacher said that there is no re-take in her school, but as some other schools will let students re-take, they cannot give her the paper.

I thought even if she does not re-take, it is good to look at the papers to get some feel of the type of questions ask. Does your kid get to keep the CT papers or they have to be returned to the school after parent's signature?
Thanks in advance for advice.


My DS was down with potent HFMD during CT period. He missed the first 3 papers. Apparently, there's this policy of no retaking of paper but the sch is kind enough to let him practice the papers so that he has an idea of what's tested and his standard, but marks not counted. I was told they will pro-rate the marks for subjects missed.


ya I think the pro-rated policy also happen in my ds' school

Can't be right? Primary to Sec is based on PSLE, isn't it?

If they still have the status, and as stated in moe website abt 99% of the kids can maintain the status, then they can join the sbgp- school base gifted prog, when they go designated sec schools such as ri, hcl etc
