Dunno ... my son, for one, never gets into the top academic ranks. At the same time, he has no problems doing fairly well in IQ tests ... altho' not well enough to get into GEP though. hahah! The English must've surely stumped him.
Most probably on the General Abilities. A lot of children fail at that... English and Math can be trained... but not General Ability

phankao wrote:Yes, we speak English at home. And they attend a SAP/GEP pri school (or used to). But somehow my elder boy is poor in language. Poor as in comparison to his Math & Science lah. I don't find that surprising. Just that he is better at doing subjects that require less linguistic expression? HAHAHA!!! My younger boy is never good at IQ tests of any sort and is good only in Math & Chinese. Even Science is too much of "language" to him - the English kind ... and no, we don't even speak chinese at home(at least not when the elder 3 were young), so I don't know where he got his love of Chinese from.
I have a friend who is 1.73m, his son 1.84m. Don't think it has all to do with the food, this boy sleeps very early every night, and eats very little. He is still growing. His mum is about 1.6m.
To grow tall, 3 elements (from my years of research - which may mean nothing ):
