Hi lynn2010,
Regarding counselling for students right, i am not sure how the teacher counselor do it. But IMHO, if you think your kid need counseling, it would be best if the parent can talk to the teacher and highlight to her abt your concern and worry. From there probably they can tackle the problem more effectively.... By the way i think the counsellor duty is counsel those Ge kids who are too stress up or depressed due to not able to cope with the programme I suppose ... :roll: ..

ya, please share as I really don't want to go crazy and lose sleep over it. Thanks alot, whew! don't have to think hard about getting a PHD to solve. Is this a compulsory project for p6?

Hi comfy,
I think the breaking code stuff should be non exam topic ...
Btw , out of curiosity, I will check w my ds whether he did this breaking code assignment or not :wink:

Hi Zann, no the science practical paper mark is still unknown. He did ok for Math, got minus 2 marks due to careless mistake! Chinese & English result not so good. As for the Math Investigation practice paper my DS did bring back a stake of papers that he said Teacher gave them to practice for invest.

Otherwise their parents would scold them and some kids dun even dare to get the parents to sign the CT paper.

Sigh! Being in GE is already quite tough and the kid needs to take the stress from their parents.

I think it is very difficult to get full marks for hmt compre section. Teacher is very strict in marking the paper.

We also hv not heard any thing abt the sci exp thingy.

Infact i heard tat the topics for sc sa2 test has yet to be confirmed by ge/moe

DH & me also not from GEP. We did not miss the boat, the boat was still in the drafting stage during our times. :rotflmao:
So, we never got to find out but I believed my DS got that genes from his dad as I'm hopeless with Math. :stupid:

It is P6. Something to do with some barcode thingy. If you guys really interested, i can share the actual assignment. I keep it for momento - a P6 assignment to be solved by a PHD holder. Xiao!!

Hi Lynn2010, I'm worry too as I am hopeless in math so cannot guide my DS when he goes P6. Do share with me too just in case he can't do it. I will let him try on his own & if he really can't then I will show him your solution. TIA.
