BTW, how does you DD's class fair in general? Since I've not seen the paper, I wonder if it's really "challenging" than mainstream HCL paper. Hmm. :?


according to my dd, she did not know of anyone who scored below 40/50. highest in her class scored 48/50. the teacher who marked the paper told them the hcl paper is easier than the mainstream's.

That's very good! Was the paper really easier than the mainstream's?

My dd's class had a mock test a few days before the actual test and about half the class failed! The lowest was 18/50 during the mock test.

My DS P4 average for HCL was in this ballpark last year. So go easy on your kid. We were warn that their score will drop when they join GEP, and we should moderate our expectation as well. It is tough to adjust to new environment and they need all our support, :celebrate:

Common Test is very important. How abt unit test for HCL? Will the mark be recorded like a CA test?
