And so today is the day that Alycia and I have been waiting anxiously for over 2 months. Today is the day that the UPSR exam is released. I am sure you are waiting impatiently for this posting too, eh? 😉
I did not expect too much from Alycia in this UPSR exam. I did not expect straight As from her as I know her Chinese writing and BM writing are not her strong subjects. Moreover, after the controversy over the Form 5 level Chinese test paper given to Primary 6 UPSR students recently, I had lesser expectation from her. To add to that, from what she told me after her BM papers, I think she had written her BM essay out of topic. Double ouch! Thank God she survived without getting a ‘D’ / ‘F’ and got a ‘B’, PHEW!!
But you know what? She scored an ‘A’ for that highly controversial Chinese paper! I am floored, ha!!
I only expected 3- 4 As from Alycia given all the boo boos that she made. Though Alycia has been getting the first place position in her class (2nd elite class) for all the exams this year, the bungle she made in her BM essay in this UPSR exam plus her mediocre strength in Chinese writing made her lose the few marks to garner an A for both the papers.
On another note, Alycia received a trophy from the school on Monday for good grades throughout the year 🙂
But I’m perfectly fine with her for not scoring straight As. Scoring 5As 2Bs are good enough for me 🙂 After all, UPSR is only the first major exam that she had gone through. She will have many more exams awaiting her in years to come. Much much more tougher exams.
This morning, Alycia’s friend, J (a very outspoken girl) called me from school and pulled a prank on me!
J – hello aunty, your dear daughter is crying now. She only has 3As. Aiyo, she’s crying so badly now!!
Me – really ar? It’s ok la. Let me talk to her.
A – mummy, I got 5As and 2Bs ha ha ha!!! (and I heard a loud guffaw in the background from her cheeky friends @@@!!)
After school, one of Alycia’s bestie’s mother brought them to Mid Valley Megamall and Gardens Mall for lunch, shopping and dinner to celebrate the closing of a good chapter in primary school. Alycia had made many good friends and some of them will join her in high school next year.
Alycia and her besties have already made plans scheduled for tomorrow right through to next week, including a karaoke treat to all their teachers. I am glad that Alycia has enjoyed her 6 years of primary school thoroughly. I enjoyed mine immensely and till today, I still keep in touch with my besties since primary school 🙂
