Hi Juliana, The key is working smart, not burning out! :( If your child is keeping up with schoolwork but you would like to prepare him/her further, have a look at our Conquer series across English, Science, and Mathematics subjects. These are great practice books and are designed to enhance your child's proficiencies in topics in preparation for PSLE :) You can browse the books on our website www.sapgrp.com, or in any Popular bookstores. I hope this helps!

My son took his PSLE this year, and I have another boy taking his next year (so speak about stress)!

All the best, don't worry too much.

Call me kiasu, but I think children should begin preparing well in advance so that there is not extreme pressure towards the end. Beginning of P5 i would start the skill building already.

Don't pressure your kids too young. I would suggest to let the school handle your child's development.
