He took some time to decide, and finally chose no, not because of what I said, but because he doesn't want to have to switch to another school and lose all his friends if selected Confused
Interesting. I guess your son must treasure friendship alot, even at this young age, he is afraid of losing all his friends.
I think most parents would want their children to try out, secretly hoping to find out where their child stand through this screening process. I have to admit that I was thinking the same when I told my kids to sit for the screening test at P3.
If the kids can pass round 1 , which is really English and Maths at a higher level, even if they are not selected at round 2, we as parents, are more or less assured that they have achieved or capable of achieving good results for English and Maths. So really, there is no harm trying.
