Normally people take 2 subjects max, seldom 3.

2 already very siong, demanding:-
because everyday drilling, need to do worksheets (homework.)

if do 3, child can be burnout.
Suggest you reduce to 2 first, see whether child can handle workload first, for 2 subjects. Don't stress your child so young, by taking 3.
The amount of homework is killing (for 3) !

for Kumon Maths:-
if you think your child can skip or jump to a higher level,
you may let your child take a Kumon test, for the higher level.
only if child pass the higher level test, then can.

if fail higher level test, cannot.

If I don't request for a test, will the teacher test the child when they think the child is ready?

If you are talking about going onto the next level, tr won't test.
Example
Suppose now yr kid is doing level 3a for Maths, then to go to the next higher level 2a, tr won't test. The child just continue to do level 3a as per normal, until he finish page 200 (ie. last page of level 3a), then only he will proceed to the next higher level 2a.

When I say jump to a higher level, it means for example: now he is currently doing 3a. But say, you want him to skip 1 level (2a), to reach ai. In that case, you may request tr to let yr child take a test, to bypass level 2a.

If child pass test, then child can start from level ai.
But if child fail test, then child cannot.
Either child still need to go through level 2a, starting from page 1, of level 2a.
If not, he may start from mid 2a. Ie. start from page 101 onwards, of level 2a.
Because each level has 200 pages.
The last page is page 200.
where he going to start from (assuming he allowed to skip )-,
will depend on the teacher's assessment on his understanding, based in on the results of him, taking the test.

For Kumon Maths, you may let yr child skip certain level, if you think child can handle it.

But not wise to skip level for languages -
For Kumon English or Chinese. Better to help child develop a stable foundation, for languages. Language skill is accumulated, "bit by bit", as each day progress, or what you call, slowly "accumulate bit by bit." You cannot say, tomorrow when my child wake up, I want my kid, to speak very well in Chinese. If you did not help yr child to build a good foundation from scratch, how to expect him to fly tomorrow ?
