My DD is only P4 and her results dropped a lot in SA1 too. The drop in P4 is almost unheard of so I am also very worried.
P4 to p5 is a big gap as there is subject difficulty. Math and science would be more difficult as syllabus is different from lower/mid primary...teachers also mark stricter to give the kids a feel of PSLE standard. If schools set tough papers, kids will find themselves struggling during p5. For p5, on top of having to face upper block science, the students are also tested lower block as well.

All children's abilities are different. Can't use a score gauge them. Better to see the effort they put in.

Unfortunately that is not how things work in life. I've yet to meet a boss who would tell his employees that it is ok to fail as long as they have done their best... :lol:

It's very normal and ok for grades to drop in Pri 5. At the end of the year, it will pick up again.

Just continue to put in consistent efforts n work on the weak topics especially for Maths.

HI, my boy is in an avg pri school, avg class, he scored 74.5 overall for his finals.
Chinese 65.5
Maths 73
Eng 84.5
Sci 80
WIth these results he is placed 34/41, this led me to think either the paper is too easy or everyone in class are 75 percentile and above. I am worried with such results, he may struggle with PSLE and go to normal stream.
Thing is, in my era, bottom percentile meant avg scores of 50s to 60s.. nowadays 75 percentil wiill still get you bottom ranks :(
