Young children in Singapore start learning by joining pre-school then kindergarten when they are 3 to 6 years of age. They then join primary 1 through to primary 6 aged between 6 and 12, after which they proceed to join secondary school. Before moving on to secondary school however, it is compulsory for all students to sit for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) exam. PSLE tests learners’ skills in English, mother tongue languages, science and mathematics.
Exams, especially for those in math, are not a favorite with many people. They can keep you worried, create fear and panic. However, no student needs to experience nervousness and panic as a result of an impending PSLE. Some parents will pay for extra tuition, look for a private tutor or opt for a free online tutorial class for their kids.
The good news is that PSLE can turn out to be a success through proper preparation including adopting new approaches and using better tools including math enrichment programs.
One of the best ways to succeed with PSLE math is for parents to enroll their children in a math enrichment centre such as Math Monkey where students are guided and taught math best practices.
