Why is P5 so important?

P5 is an important level for the primary school students. Their performance will set a benchmark for their PSLE in P6.

In fact, P5 is a preparatory year for the PSLE. The students are introduced to the analytical questions in all the learning subjects, namely English, Math, Mother tongue language and Science. They start to learn how to infer the questions with a deeper understanding of the concepts so that they are better prepared for the PSLE in P6.

However, the transition from P4 to P5 caught many students and their parents by surprise. The unexpected jump in the level of difficulty of the questions cause some students to struggle in P5, leading to fluctuations in their performance during the class tests and exams.

Getting ready for P5 will help the students to overcome the learning hurdles and change the way they study for their PSLE. The study approach cannot be the same as P4. The thinking process has to be more in-depth and thorough. Such development takes time and effort. With perseverance and guidance, the students can sail through P5 with ease.
