Tuition Results #3
Mid Year Examinations 2007
Updates!
6) Kwek Ming Sheng (2Exp)
Term 1 2007 - 58 (C5) --> Mid Year Overall 2007 - 67.5 (B3)
--> improved by 2 grades!!!

An underdog is defined as a person, team etc that is weaker than the others, is always expected to be unsuccessful, and that is often treated badly.

This time round, the underdog students truly prevailed over their challenging circumstances!

1) Feng Shi (3NA)
Mid Year Exam 2006 (Fail) --> SA2 2006 (Pass!) --> Mid Year Exam 2007 - SA2 (63.1/100)!!!!!
- E8/D7 --> B4 = improved by 3-4 grades!

Keep in mind this Chinese student joined the Singapore school system only last year!

2) Nicole Li (2NA)
Like her compatriate, Feng Shi, she came from China and joined her Singapore school in the middle of Term 2. She came to me with only a Primary 3-4 standard of English and had a lot of difficulty understanding Primary school comprehension passages and stringing together proper sentences for her compositions. Having failed numerous entrance tests with the MOE and schools, passing the Secondary School English Paper was therefore an impossiblity.

Nevertheless, her SA2 results - 51.4/100!!!

3) Sankar (4NA)
Final Year 2006 - 47.0/100 (D7) --> Mid Year 2007 SA2 - 63.8/100 (B4)
--> improved by 3 grades!
We expected a C6/5 but Sankar delievered a miracle, beating more than 3/4 of his classmates and emerged top 10 in his class for English.

4) Kelly Chan (Primary 4)
She came to me in Term 1 scoring only 60odd% (C/B grade)
--> Mid Year 2007 - 60/80 = 75% = A grade!!
(note - highest in level = 64/100!)

5) Shaun Lai (4NA)
Term 1 2007 - 43 (E8) --> Mid Year 2007 - 65.8 (B3)
--> improved by 5 grades!!!

The rest of you (my students, that is) - remember to photocopy your result slip and bring them when I next see you!

More exciting updates later!!
