Don't know, DS came back with a form to pay and that was it. You going to start PSLE preparation now, :scared:

No, not so early. My friend got lobang to get it cheaper if buy in bulk, so she asked me want to join or not? I am still thinking if I should order now. :scratchhead:

Thank you, jtoh! Guess the preparation shd be quite intensive if it only starts in Term 3!

Besides SS portfolio (2 portfolios?), are there other projects in P6?

Yap ... Preparation starts in term 3 as term 2, there are still gep sa1 exams .. July-aug will be busy with DSA stuff ..

MTIA.

My DS school bought it for them, and they do them in school. So check out with the teachers first before buying.

Thanks TwaTau for the advice. Your DS school teachers bought all subjects for them? Where they buy them from? :?

I think they maybe got them directly from other schools.. :roll: ... And the papers are current yrs sa1 or prelim ( of course Over Liao by then la )...

Think can start earlier for Eng and 2nd lang but need not be too intensive.

As for Math, most of the geppers will not have a problem.

But for science, they need time to tune to mainstream level. my experience is that they tend to misinterprete the qns. this tuning better to do in term 3.

I had my share of shock :yikes: too! Then I realised I also cannot answer the qns correctly coz I was not trained to look out for the keywords and understand the context of the qns.

Personally, for science, don't rush into past yr paper...just read casually the prescribed science revision book during the 1st 2 term to warm up.

It is better to send them for Mainstream Science tuition?
