Improve PSLE Result:I have met many parents who are concerned about their children’s performance in PSLE Exams. Some are already looking for help soon after their Primary 5 results are out. School holiday PSLE programmes are being advertised in the Singapore newspapers.
When the PSLE Prelim Exams are announced towards the end August or just after Teachers’ Day. Some parents do get into the panic mode. If your child is already performing A or A* standard. Let them keep consistent work. No point piling them with top school exam papers… etc. I think they will do fine when they sit for PSLE. Those who are having C or B may want to take agressive action to help them improve their scores.If you want to help them to do well in problem sums or learn some speedy ways to solve a mathematical problem, you can attend PSLE Maths Workshop which are conducted over weekends.
Parents who cannot help their children will turn to tuition…. Try KipMcgrath or get tuition from a MOE certified teacher who are experience with Upper Primary students. MindChamps and MindEdge actually have good programs, but it may be too late if you only have 2 more months to go before PSLE. At MindChamps and MindEdge, they have developed a system to help your child to open his or her mindset and maintain focus to do well. If you child is in P5, you may want to consider getting them ready for this program now.
