If you are a parent, I am sure you care for your kids’ academic performance and you also want your kids to do well in their exams. Unfortunately, exams remain the conventional method to test a kid’s understanding of what they have learnt. Some kids may feel some form of exam stress CCNA certification . I am not sure about you but as a parent, I feel the same too.
In Singapore, all Primary 6 students are required to sit for a public exam known as the Primary School Leaving Examination (“PSLE”). If you are not familiar with our education system, it is commonly accepted by parents here that a kid’s future will depend on his PSLE result. After all, Singapore is a competitive society and only kids with above average PSLE results will be able to go to better secondary schools, which will pave the way for them to get into junior colleges and the universities.
Even though my eldest son is only in Primary 5 now, I start feeling some form of exam stress too as a parent. I cannot imagine that it is just one year away before he sits for his PSLE. I care for my son’s future and wonder how I can help him study for his exam (and that includes his PSLE). I went through a similar education system in Hong Kong and sat for different kinds of public exams before. I think it is time I can share my experience with him. In this article, I am going to share with you 3 great tips and hopefully you will find my sharing insightful.
It is natural for parents to be concerned with their kids’ academic performance and exam results. I know some parents will demand their kids to achieve certain scores in the exams. However, as it is our kids’ exams, it is my view that we should not impose our own expectation on our kids as a command. Instead, I encourage both parents and their kids to get together and talk about their own expectations. Effective communication between parents and kids should always be a dialogue and not a monologue.
