Firstly, thank you to all the students who attended the PSLE Oral workshop over the Public Holiday & their parents who sacrificed their day off ferrying them. My hope is that the students found the workshop beneficial for the upcoming PSLE Oral.

Below, is the list of the Preliminary Oral Questions, kindly shared by my students and some of the students from the workshop. This is good for revision. Prepare the answers and do some research online for the facts for questions such as energy conservation. Also, be able to analyse a poster confidently. Example: I think that the poster is relatively effective because…. I would add….to the poster.

My next post will be the Reminders for the PSLE Oral. I wish everyone the best of luck for the PSLE Oral. Look at the examiners, be confident and when in doubt, give personal examples.
