We fed ChatGPT with text-based questions from the PSLE 2022 Science paper. Not that we want to throw shade at ChatGPT but we found that there were a number of questions which were shockingly answered wrongly. Explanations provided were also either awry or too complex for a primary school student.
Facing the daunting road to PSLE preparation can unnerve most Singaporean parents.
Are you supporting your child to realise their potential to the fullest? Is your child receiving the proper guidance? How sure are you?
Josephine Tan, mother of two of TTA's PSLE high-scorers, Keane and Kayden, found herself asking those same questions in her sons' journey to the PSLE. Read on as she shares the journey which led both her boys onto academic excellence.

From Think Teach to you: Here’s our analysis of the 2022 PSLE Mathematics Paper!
Article Published On: 27 March 2023 Many parents, particularly those of Primary 6 children, have been up in arms about MOE’s decision to remove mid-year exams. Ms Connie Wong, a Think Teach parent, shared the same sentiments when she lamented…
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.
