Calling all PSLE 2023 P6 Students!

Primary 6 Decoding OPEN ENDED QUESTIONS Masterclass:

“Answer Open Ended Questions the PSLE Way”

P6 Decoding Open Ended Questions Masterclass: Answering Open Ended Questions the PSLE Way is a premier Primary 6 Answering Technique Masterclass led by seasoned PSLE Science Specialist and experienced PSLE Marker Jayce Or, to help students decode Open Ended Science questions through a unique P.E.A.K Science Heuristic methodology.

This methodology is proven to unravel the conceptual knots in answering Open Ended Questions with immediate and effective results.

Hi, my name is Jayce Or, and I am a PSLE Science Specialist. In my over 20 years of teaching and coaching P6 students, I have seen more than a fair share of students who feel discouraged in tackling the PSLE Science Paper – especially Paper 2.

They are continuously frustrated with the inability to answer the Science Open-Ended Questions (OEQ) well. They seem to know their content yet are unable to pin down the reason why they keep losing precious marks and cannot seem to give a satisfactory answer.

Here are some core frustrations that I observe:

1. Students cannot answer according to what the question demands.
2. They tend to read the question and start writing out their answers immediately.
3. They fail to pick out the correct clues from the question.
4. Students cannot write their answers to satisfy the full awarding of marks.
5. Students fall prey to poor answering techniques, weak representation of concepts and miss out key scientific vocabulary.

Without fully understanding why their answer is wrong, students feel helpless. Parents too, have problems grasping what it takes to get that “few marks more” to see significant improvement in their children’s grades.

Over the years, I have developed the proven PEAK™ Science Heuristics methodology that has helped many students unlock the tools for understanding and processing questions at a glance.

Covering a comprehensive framework of various distinctive question types in the Science exam paper, students are guided with a complete framework of how to process questions intuitively so that answering the questions becomes a breeze.


This methodology aims to help students achieve their PEAK performance in PSLE Science by demystifying OEQ Questions:

P- Processing the Question Intent
E- Evaluating Question Types
A- Applying Answering Techniques
K- Knowing the Keys to Science Mastery

This holiday, I am conducting another run of this PSLE Science Masterclass “Answering Open Ended Questions the PSLE Way” specifically to help students tackle all their blindspots in answering Open Ended Questions. Through this, hope many students will be able to achieve their personal best this PSLE.
