The Government believes that it is important to counsel parents during this crucial period, with the purpose of maintaining a healthy environment at home, free of the usual examination pressure. Students are already tense before exams and it will help if parents play a supportive role at such a time. Teachers were also encouraged to discuss the children’s future course with parents.
