How to Prepare for PSLE & Exam Tips for PSLE, GCE in Singapore
Preparing for PSLE 2011
I just came out from a seminar talking about PSLE Math Workshop during the holidays. Some parents are taking the proactive step of preparing their children for PSLE 2011 at this time of the year, and looking for holiday programs. Instead of allowing their children to waste away 6 weeks of school holidays and staying engaged on the computer games, parents choose to give their children a headstart in preparing for PSLE 2012.
They come in all kinds of packages. PSLE English Language Camp, PSLE Math Camp, Chinese Language Camp, Science Camp, PSLE Preparation Study Skills Camp, Mindset and Motivaton Camp. . It is all about helping them improve their grades or scores, to ensure they have an advantage in competing with 40,000 other students who are sitting for PSLE in 2011. Programs are also offered by MindChamps, MindEdge and other groups to help students have that competitive edge at PSLE.
Exams Tips for PSLE Students in Singapore
About School holidays, school terms, exams schedules, help for exams....Parents seem to be the ones who are searching for such information. I am glad that more parents are supportive of their children's learning journey.
At 12, very few children know what is the future like for him. He may not know the consequences he has to face if he does not do well for PSLE. On the other hand there are some who know exactly how many points to score, for them to get into the school of their choice.
If you are reading this at around August or early September, you may still be able to help your child, if he has awaken to the fact that he has to buck up or else...... Then an aggressive schedule of monitoring his work and working on past exam papers from various reputable schools. Getting a very good tuition teacher to keep him on track and to get his concept and knowledge right, may have to be looked into.
If you are looking at this, and you have a good few months to plan for PSLE, then start by helping him to achieve little successes (that is if your child is not a motivated student). Help him see studying as fun and enjoyable. Find a tuition teacher who is strict and yet able to shower praises whenever he improves, or make learning fun and easy to understand. Get him enrolled in some programs to help him with his academic performance or help change his mindset. He may get motivated to put in more effort into his studies, because his mindset has changed. Do not resort to scolding or nagging or even comparing with his siblings or friends who have done better.... it does not help. Put yourself in your child's shoes... be a supportive parent.
By all means, find the right program and invest to help your child excel in his exams and also in his future.
Exam Tips, GCE O Level Exams
Preparing for GCE O levels seems remote until it hit June for some students. Then in September, some start to panic and look for all kinds of solutions or helps. You will need to learn to work out your own goals. Learn some proven memory skills and start to strategize to perform better your aggregate of L1R4 to permit you entrance into the course and school of your choice. To get into a JC or Polytechnic, it is good to aim for an aggregate of about 15 and lesser or even much lesser.
It is highly achievable if you are able to sit down and start putting up a time-table to prepare for exams. Set the Exams as main priority and work at it. Create a small study group with friends of like-mindedness who also want to excel in the exams. Find a conducive place to study and share notes. Pull out past ten years series, and tackle questions one by one. Assign one question to each member of the study group, and get each one to teach how he arrived at those answers. By teaching others, you learn more because you really spend time to prepare to teach your friends. Go through this process until you are satisfied that you have covered the whole syllabus for that subject. You may email me should you need some exam coaching.
