Master war tactician, Sun Tzu, famously advised us to “know your enemy” so that “in a hundred perils you will never be in peril”. Although we do not want students to regard examinations as going into battle, the analogy is an apt one. If students prepared themselves by mastering every type of question they might be tested on, they would always excel in any assessment and hence, “never be in peril”. The truth is that while worthwhile, documenting and categorising questions is an extremely laborious task. However, there is good news for you. We have done the heavy lifting on your behalf! Taking it upon ourselves, we have trawled through countless examination papers and recorded every single type of question that has been tested. From 2017 to 2022, we have sorted and recorded, a little over 40 different grammar question types that schools in Singapore have tested their Primary 3 and 4 students. We have even noted down the frequency of which these question types get tested.
Our smart assessment approach is designed to complement Singapore's latest education reforms and support your child's development. Our approach accurately flags areas for improvement and suggests effective methods to correct those areas.
Think Teach Academy’s Primary Science Department presents to you an in-depth written analysis of the 2022 PSLE Science Paper. The analysis provides an overview of the question types being tested and highlight the more interesting questions that students found challenging. The analysis then proceeds to share the common pitfalls students would have made and how Think Teach Academy’s easy to apply techniques can be used to answer these questions.
