Taken from schoolbag.sg I currently give tuition to two primary 6 students and I have got to say that the amount of stress on a kid who takes PSLE is pretty overwhelming especially if the parents expects good results from them. One of my tutee performs pretty well for her mathematics, averaging an A most of the time and to me, she faces quite a lot of pressure from her parents to perform well. She also expects much from herself and hence places a lot of emphasis on scoring well for PSLE. She has also broken down a few times during lessons due to not performing well enough.

My other tutee although not performing as well as the others but he definitely doesnt face as much stress as his parents doesn’t really emphasize so much on results but only that he needs to get into express in secondary school …
