P5/P6 Skill Mastery Course
Become Great At Tackling Experiment-centric Questions!
Discover the proven examination strategies & answering techniques used by over 7,836 primary school students to score A/A*s in Science! (AND how your child can do it too… with the right guidance!)
What Your Child Will Learn
During this 3-hour skills-based masterclass, we’ll work closely with your child to improve his/her answering techniques to tackle experiment-centric questions.
🚀 Gain Exposure To The 6 Types of Experiment-Centric Questions & Their Variations
Our PSLE Science Specialists have identified six main types of experiment-centric questions that can be tested in the open-ended section of the Science paper:
Q1: What is the aim of the experiment?
Q2: What is the relationship between A & B?
Q3: What does one do to keep X the same to ensure a fair test?
Q4: How do we ensure the results of the experiment are reliable?
Q5: What’s the purpose of the control set-up?
Q6: What can we conclude from the results of the experiment?
Aside from recognising these question types, it is also important for your child to learn the different variations of each question type. This will be exceptionally helpful if he/she does not want to be caught off guard during the examinations.
More importantly, different question types require different answering techniques which we will cover in great detail during this masterclass.
🚀 Proven ‘Copy and Paste’ Answering Structures To Tackle Experiment-centric Questions
Your child will NOT leave this workshop empty-handed.
Not only will our PSLE Science Specialists guide your child through the step-by-step process of tackling the 6 types of experiment-centric questions, we’ll also provide your child with fill-in-the-blank handouts and worksheets that are all designed to help students learn Science easier, better and faster.
These valuable resources will help to shorten the learning curve tremendously. You and your child can expect to save lots of valuable time and frustration trying to figure out what examination setters are looking out for.
🧪 Take Advantage Of The ‘Changed’ and ‘Measured’ Variables From The Question To Answer
Many students tend to skim through the question very quickly, forgetting that there are important clues in the question that can help him/her construct an appropriate scientific answer.
In this masterclass, we will teach your child how to spot important keywords that lead to the identification of the ‘changed’ and ‘measured’ variables in the question. When paired with the correct answering techniques (which we’ll cover), these variables form a fool-proof method to ensure that the full score for the experiment-centric question is secured.
Get this right and watch your child’s Science grade increase dramatically! Get this wrong and your child may be losing many unnecessary marks.
P/S: Some students even try to invent their own variables because they simply do not know where to look!

Here’s What Your Child Will Get
When your child enrolls today, he/she can look forward to get access to:
- 6 Key Answering Techniques Delivered Across 3 Hours of Lesson Time
- 15-Page Step-by-Step Guide To Tackling Experiment-Centric Questions
- 9 Questions Adapted From Past Year Examination Papers (For Application)
- 1 Extra Revision Booklet With Additional Practice Questions
🤚🏻 Don’t Go To The Examination Hall Without This Strategy
Typically in every Primary 5 or 6 Science examination paper, your child can expect experiment-centric questions to be tested either in the multiple-choice section OR the open-ended section.
Many students tend to get these experiment-centric questions incorrect because they simply have no idea how to go about answering them accurately.
Instead of leaving their performance to guesswork, we have devised a set of proven thought processes and answering techniques to tackle these questions effectively.
It is vital for your child to appreciate and understand the keywords used in experimental set-ups so that he/she can analyse these questions accurately.
Having a systematic approach to answer these questions can save your child precious time and the agony of coming up with a half-baked answer.
In other words, your child can prepare for these questions ahead of time & save up to 10 to 15 marks EASILY during his/her examinations (… this could mean between scoring a ‘B’ OR an ‘A/A*’ in Science!)
Here’s The Thing.
Since our students attended our Experiment Techniques™ Masterclasses, they have been using these answering techniques effectively in their primary school examination papers and even the PSLE Science paper.
If these answering techniques work well for our students, we are sure it will work for your child as well.

If You’re Still On The Fence, Hear Us Out.
Over the past seven years, we’ve seen more than 1,588 primary school students attend the Experimental Techniques™ Masterclass, achieving phenomenal improvements in their understanding of the subject matter & more importantly, their results.
We’ve been getting these raving testimonials from happy parents weekly after their kids have benefitted immensely from our help. Click here to see what other parents have been saying about our Experimental Techniques™ Masterclass.
In case you’re wondering…
This is NOT one of those enrichment programs where students gain loads of theories and do nothing with them afterwards!
As your child will get to apply whatever they’ve learned directly on school examination questions during the course … by the time your child has completed the course, he/ she will be trained on how to tackle his/ her school homework & school examination papers accurately & efficiently.
Not a month later… or even a week later, but immediately!
During the Experimental Techniques™ Masterclass, we’ll be revealing the exact same study strategies used by our top-performing primary school students. These strategies have helped them save hours studying every day and yet allow them to score As & A*s during their school examinations time & time again!
So… if you are looking for:
1) A highly robust methodology to sharpen your child’s Science answering techniques, especially in their open-ended section (… such that he/she no longer loses marks unnecessarily due to missing links, key words or key phrases)
2) An engaging teacher with a strong proven track record with primary school students (>80% As and A*s) (… trust me: teachers make or break the learning experience for students. Set them up with the right teacher & they’ll enjoy the learning process for life)
3) A comprehensive set of notes to tackle experiment-centric questions that high-performing primary school students use to excel in their examinations (… you’d want your child to get his/her hands on these materials & start revising now. The best part: Your child doesn’t have to spend countless hours trying to study, because we’ve distilled the most important parts to take note!)
… then this course may just be perfect for your child.
Now, let’s be real. Is this going to be easy?
There is ALWAYS going to be a bit of discomfort, uncertainty and plenty of hard work when your child is trying to learn and apply our answering structures to tackle examination questions. That is normal & many of our students go through the same process all the time.
Once your child pushes past that discomfort, that’s when you will notice real growth in his/her learning. It will not be a walk in the park, but we have plenty of materials & close guidance to help your child improve his/her answering techniques!
We’ll see your child at the workshop!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Masterclass?
This is NOT a trial class nor a typical program where you expect 20-30 students crammed in a class, in a bid to do some last-minute rescue work. ...a Masterclass is more like a lesson dedicated towards the strong mastery of a particular skill.
Here’s how it works: Throughout our teaching careers, we have perfected a number of strategies and tactics that are proven to work for our students. More importantly, these strategies are carefully documented in our course material, so these best practices could be taught effectively to new primary school students. We will not hold any back “secret tactics” (unlike traditional kungfu masters) & these strategies would be EXACTLY THE SAME as the ones taught to our high performers.
Please note that our Experimental Techniques™ Masterclass is not for everyone. They work best for students who have the will & determination to do well, but are lacking the right strategies to get to the A or A*. Our strategies are all meat and no fluff. If you want lengthy theories, please read the textbook instead.
Our Experimental Techniques™ Masterclass is all about taking action and getting results as quickly and easily as possible!
Will there be breaks in between classes?
Yes, we typically offer a 5-10 minutes break for every 1-hour of learning. Your child will get two short breaks during the 3-hour masterclass.
Will my child be getting any materials from this masterclass?
Yes, your child will be receiving a guide booklet covering the answering techniques for the 6 types of experiment-centric questions.
On top of that, he/she will be receiving a question booklet containing a curated list of open-ended questions adapted from primary school examination papers.
As such, your child would have the opportunity to apply the thought processes and answering techniques learnt on these questions immediately.
Who is the instructor for the class?
Our classes are conducted by our team of highly-popular PSLE Science Specialists.
Our PSLE Science Specialists have collectively more than ten years of teaching experience under their belts. During which, they have experimented with plenty of studying strategies, keywords & template answers. More importantly, they know what works for the student and what doesn’t.
Using the proven techniques from our Complete Concept Integration™ methodology, they have helped more than 80% of their students clinch As and A*s during the PSLE Science examination. Seasoned by experience, they’re known among parents for building rapport with their students & helping them achieve tremendous academic results in the shortest period of time.
What is the maximum class size?
Our Experimental Techniques™ masterclasses are typically fully booked. You can expect the class to have 12 students.
What is the difference between the CCI Science Workshop and the Experimental Techniques Masterclass?
The CCI™ Science Program is a different program from the 3-hour Experimental Techniques™ Masterclass.
The 3-hour masterclass is a skills-based workshop – focusing on questions involved in experimental set-ups (such as what is the aim of the experiment, how to ensure a fair test, etc). In contrast, the CCI workshop is a content-based, comprehensive workshop – focusing on the thought processes & answering techniques for a selected number of P4 and P5 topics (and P6 topics for P6 CCI).
There’ll not be any overlaps in terms of the focus. Parents usually send their kids for both courses because we cover answering techniques for different skillets.
