SA2 has come to an end! GE exams ends much earlier compared to mainstream. Is there a reason for it. Do we hv the luxury of relaxing from now till term ends? Or r the kids expected to work on something else for these final weeks?

I remember they had not too much a break when my DS was in P4. After exam, worksheets continue to flow.

Hi, any P6 parents can share the P6 ERP booklist?
Wanted to buy a few books for DS to read first.

TIA.

The MO tests are a lot more difficult compared to the ICAS ones. So based on that I suppose a Platinum in SMOPS would be more prestigious. But given that you have to be #1 in Singapore to get a medal for ICAS that's pretty prestigious too. Just a different level I suppose.


Hi

Apologies for my ignorance, but what is "ICAS" and "SMOPS"
