Yukilei, do tell him not to feel upset, it's done & over. Concentrate & do well for the rest of the subjects & he can still meet his 80% target. Jia you!


and it could be just 不切题 and not as bad as he think.

Hi Yukilei, don't worry. I'm sure your DS will do fine. DD also came back today and was really upset as she knew that she had already lost 4 marks in the main paper (on top of many more marks to be lost in comprehension, her weakest section). I think the kids themselves are stressed, as they know that the marks are important for DSA.

So even though I was freaking out quietly when I heard what she said, I reassured her that it was OK, and encouraged her to do her best for tomorrow's paper.

All the best to your DS!!

That's what I told him. Beside, he has done well for his oral cos his teacher said that he's very good. So I told him if he does well for paper 2, he may just fall short of 80% by 10%. Use other subjects to build up that 10%.

Thks MotherHen. I'm also freaking out but have to act cool. I even told him to continue to work hard for HCL. Though it does not constitute the 80%, but since we're giving the school the report book, the school may notice that he has been doing well for HCL. So, they may know that his low CL could be due to compo & can be excuse..... hopefully.

Actually Chinese is not his forte.. but he has been surprising me with his Chinese result since P5. So I guess he pin some hope on it.

All the best to your DD too!!!!

But in p6 where p6 geppers will take both cl and hcl papers ... I guess they will mainly look at their cl sa1 result and most likely also look into hcl result if it is a sap school ..
Hope I have answered your qn ..


Are the P6 GEP SA1 CL and HCL papers set by GEP centre? My ds told me that the mainstream classes seem to be doing the same papers.

I think it is those mainstream pupils who twin with GEP for HCL lesson.

Not sure too.. :shrug:

Should be set by GE branch. My DS's school mainstream students took their CL last week.

P4 GEP science will be tested on so many topics? Oh Gosh I thought they will only be tested on Matter and Heat which is what has been covered so far :cry:
