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.
