PSLE MATHS: 9TH & 10TH SEP

Mon and Tue 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm

P6 pupils will be working on mock papers that comprise both short and long questions.

Practice is the other key ingredient for success in PSLE Math. Hence we are going to have an intensive program that has systematic coverage of PSLE math topics, emphasizes on higher order challenging problems and where pupils’ presentation of solutions will be fine-tuned.

PSLE SCIENCE: 10TH & 11TH SEP

Wed and Thu 1 pm to 4 pm

This program is designed with the intention to provide a final boost of science problem solving skills for students by attempting challenging science questions that require fundamentals of overlapping scientific concepts within the PSLE syllabus. Questions will place strong emphasis on the common misconceptions that most students will have.

Recent PSLE science trend suggests that there is an increased emphasis on questions pertaining to application and experiment scenarios. Students can expect to face many such questions. Students will also be reassessed on their ability to brainstorm relevant key words, providing them with a better understanding of delivering an answer that yields the maximum credit possible.
