Donch worry. Seriously, what % of kids are self-driven/motivated, esp at the young age.

Can anyone advise for P5 GEP, how much will the workload increase as compared to P4? Other than the IRS Projects, are there a lot more things to expect?

Is the test and exam schedule similar to P4, i.e. CT1, CT2 and Year end paper?

Other than the IRS that's really dependent on how much you'd want to put in, don't see much increase in workload. Well, MY workload decreased quite a bit, because DD took up more independent work on her own. :lol:

Yes, test and exam schedule is the same: CT1, CT2 and SA2.

For my son, P5 was definitely much tougher and busier than P4. This could partly be due to the fact that he took up an additional CCA, and had to attend further enrichments in another school for a few months.

Having said that, I still feel that the workload and level of difficulty went up a notch in P5. For instance, my son had to start seeking help from his peers in solving math qns, something he didn't have to do in P4.

Add all these to IRS, I'm just glad we saw the back of P5. Phew! :sweat:
