Blind practice DOES NOT make perfect.

I try so hard but I don’t succeed…  (Coldplay)

Why is this so? Practising blindly without understanding your mistakes means that you are likely to repeat your mistakes over and over again. The solution is to understand why you were wrong and make sure that you avoid making that same mistake again when you have the chance to attempt another question.

Just read and do the question, NOT!

Whether it is a question on sentence synthesis or comprehension, reading it carefully is only the first step. To increase your chances of bagging that mark, you need to know the steps to arrive at the correct answer and minimise error. Even more importantly, how you can easily do so with the clock ticking in the countdown towards PSLE.

Lil' but Mighty Synthesis and Compre Camp!

Is your child facing any of the following while attempting the synthesis and comprehension sections?

Synthesis

  1. scoring 0 to 4 points despite repeated practice

  2. unable to identify question types (e.g. active/ passive voice question)

  3. confused about tenses required for the answer

  4. unsure of sentence structures

  5. missing out words and/or spelling given words wrongly in the answer

Comprehension

  1. find the passage hard to understand

  2. have no idea how to break down and check for understanding of the passage

  3. unable to identify question types and requirements

  4. not scoring for table-form questions (True/ False, Cause/ Effect etc.)

  5. not giving necessary details to answer the question (insufficient details or too much details) 

It is time to stop groping in the dark by working those questions with a clear idea of what they are and what needs to be done to find the answers.

Enrolment limited to the first 20 primary 6 students!


LBM PSLE Synthesis and Compre Camp!
Ian benefited greatly from the 2-day workshop, learning tips to tackle challenging questions and minimise careless mistakes in the Synthesis/Transformation and Comprehension sections of the PSLE English Paper 2. He found the Comprehension Revision especially useful, as the revision focuses on how to effectively answer the various types of questions (e.g. table form, cause/effect) asked in open-ended Comprehension, which has been a section that he hasn’t been scoring well despite being under the tutelage of another popular English tuition centre for the past 2 years. As a parent, I’m satisfied that Ian had a fulfilling 2 days of learning and acquired valuable answering skills that he can apply in his future English examinations.
