It's not true cos best 2 classes include CL in their score. So some kids who are strong in English and Maths may not be in best 2 classes cos of their poor CL. But they can get through 1st round cos of their strong English and Maths.

Prelim - when the school started to prepare them, ie. 4th week of June.

PSLE - a week after prelim, but DS not very focus (he is the happy go lucky kind), about 1-2 hours daily ( :| too little in my opinion, but DS said they did a lot of test papers in school)

DS did not do anything to prepare for English (only read some story books). He spent his time in preparing 1) science (most of his time) 2) Chinese 3) Maths (the least time, only on topics that he was not so good)

ya ..same same here..Science is the subject that need more time for reading up the topics and memorising some important facts plus doing some pass year papers...

some of frends said, they purposely don push their kids too much during P6 prelim. So that their prelim result would be "ok only". This is to let the kids feel the pinch & strive to work harder for the real thing (PSLE). Dunno how true.... :roll: btw, my elder kid only P3 lah... :lol: She still complaining that the GEP test was very tough.....

DS also didn't say anything. He's watching TV and playing Wii all day too! :shock: Supposed to do homework and ERP but have not seen him do it. :| Am letting him relax, will ask him about it on thurs or maybe friday. :wink:


homework, ERP?! kid said no homework except for chinese workbook.
Now, taking afternoon nap after playing the whole morning cum half the afternoon. Arrh :stupid:


Finally found out yesterday that DS's ERP homework is quite interesting but not so simple to do. They have to choose to do one from a list of about 14 items. Deadline is 25 October!!!!
