Chij St Nick maths, maha bodhi maths and rosyth maths past year papers are not difficult, should try (Nan Chiau or Tao Nan) maths, from hokkien huay Kuan primary schools.

For maths -
try to practise past year papers from either all boys schools or from co ed schools, can skip the all girls schools maths past year papers, except maybe rgps (of relatively high standard).
As we know, boys are usually stronger in (maths and science subjects), than girls. CHIJ St Nick maths standard, is not high

For math, the top schs like gep centres not good enough as a benchmark? What about nyps standard? What did u notice about hokkien huay Kuan sch papers? Consistently more challenging? How often do math Olympiad type questions came out? What score from those schs r considered good?

U mean to try top boys sch papers coz their standard might be higher? Based on what u said about boys being stronger in math n science, then does it only mean we target girls sch papers for languages? :smile:

Im just speaking in general.. math Olympiad questions r usually not found or taught in syllabus but some parents were talking before that some questions in exams could be non routine questions n not exactly in syllabus. So i m just asking if they do come out in exams n how often it does.
