When DD was doing her homework yesterday, she lamented to me that this year is SUPER boring! She said that the work is mundane and she misses doing research, especially since there is no more IRS/FPS this year.

So far, only her science teacher has asked them to do some research but it's not compulsory.

I know there are quite a few Math Olympiad competitions coming up but since DD's not participating in them, is there any other gep activities to excite her?

So very reassuring that 80% for P6 SA1 is average of 4 subjects. Baring any surprises (or should I say shock :shock: ) our DDs should be able to skip GAT :pray:

dd's math is :roll: (last yr only managed 70s) but her other subjects pulled up her average to abv 80s. too bad SS is not counted cos she scored 90s for that.

if she does reasonably well for EL/HCL/SC but so-so in math (assuming math 70s but avr of 4 subj abv 80), will she still hv to sit for the test instead of prceeding directly to interview rd ?


It's more than 80% for average of all 4 subjects.


:thankyou:

Nothing much for SS too. She has her usual portfolio (2 entries, due in July) and a project using FPS techniques which they will do in class (also due in July, I think). However, no information has been given yet with regards to the project as they are supposed to focus on their portfolio first.

Also nothing special. Submitted one ERP. The rest are the usual revision papers and worksheets. Is she missing out on something?

Nope, nothing about show and tell... nor additional English assignments. Maybe teacher is givng them a good CNY break before giving them these assignments?
