I have one question about picture composition. There were several occasions when the characters in the pictures were not very clearly illustrated, for example, students argue if a character is a young lady, teenager, middle age women or grandmother. How much will it affect the student's score if he/she mistook the character's age but still keeping the theme intact throughout? In fact, it happened in Chinese oral pictures b4 as well in lower primary. In one case, a man in the picture was illustrated with shoulder length hair and some students thought it was a lady.
The markers will take into consideration if the drawing is indeed ambiguous. If the rest of the content meets the requirement, then there will be little/no penalization (unless it's the type of 'obvious' mistakes - e.g. young/middle aged lady but addressed her as granny)

This was a translated rubric (which I shared in the 2018 PSLE thread) for reference.

Re-post of some suggestions (for students in the 25+/- range) I posted in a reply in 2019 PSLE thread:

For compo training, can try to:
1. get your child to verbally articulate his plans and/or jot down the story flow in point form. [Objective is to plot a coherent story line with little/no loopholes - helps with oral too (and through this can identify which words/phrases the child doesn't know how to express using CL)]
2. practice writing out the climax of the story (using pic 2-4 or 3-5) instead of writing the entire comp (i.e. all 6 pics). [Objective is to describe the events vividly (details + appropriate use of adjectives)]

All the above are aimed at increasing the child's amount of practice without being overwhelmed/put off by the writing of full stories + increasingly boost the child's confidence.

There are many good phrases found in the new syllabus.

In this article, we have compiled all the good phrases to help pupils to write better compositions:

Hello chinesealive, thank you for sharing! & of course, zacs mums enthusiasm. May I presume, chinesealive, that the vocabulary is taken from both 普华 + 高华 核心 texts? Thank you.

看图作文不是单单描述图意那么简单,那样作文分数只是28-32,作文要取得高分,你的详略到位了吗?描写恰当了吗?故事情节有无曲折性?图片中看不到的地方有补充吗?过渡自然吗?首尾呼应吗?(命题),这些决定你的作文是否取得37-40.
