She did quite ok for the 1st 2 terms(I think), with 90+ for Math, & HMT, SCI, ENG 80+ respectively. Average for all subjects came up to 85%. This term, there isn't any test for SCI, for HMT 85, ENG 70 and Math 74 (all marks here have not included daily work or filing). Pls advise, at what stage or score then we parents should consider tuition. Currently my dd not attending any tuition, hope some parents here could share your experiences to help me with my decision. I wouldn't want to load her with tuitions unless itz really necessary (want her to hv rest n play time too), but also do not want to be over optimistic b4 itz too late. All inputs are most appreciated, thank you.
I would say that in P4, you should be able to score >80% for overall average easily. In P5, grades will drop as the work gets more difficult and the student has to juggle more projects plus competitions, IRS etc. Compare your dd's score against her cohort. If she's below the mean, you might want to consider getting help for her to bring her up to speed before the subjects get more difficult.
Just want to share that not so easy to obtain > 80% for overall average, my dd for example & I have a few friends same situation too. So if your kid is like my dd, take heart and seek help if you are concern about it. Me, has started looking for tutor/enrichment centre etc.
