Below are useful suggestions that parents can do to help their children be confident and prepare well for these tests.

- Set up a regular study schedule
Create a specific and stable study schedule to help your child have regular study habits. The study schedule should include time to review and do homework at increasing levels, customized to suit your child’s ability and learning pace.

Parents should carefully read through the Starters, Movers or Flyers test and clearly understand the structure and content of the test. Learn about appropriate study materials such as textbooks, sample exam questions and supplementary study materials to support your child’s review process.
