Actress Zoe Tay can relax today.

That is when the all-important Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) ends and her testing time is over.

Her second son Ashton is sitting the examination where the results determine which secondary school he can enrol in.

Speaking to Shin Min Daily News to promote her upcoming drama My Guardian Angels, Tay, 51, said she had tried to get Ashton, 12, to focus on what is important ahead of the examination.

"I don't want him to have any regrets in the future. I told him, 'I'm very worried for you because you don't seem worried for yourself.'"

Like any concerned Singapore parent, Tay, who has two other sons with pilot-husband Philip Chionh, made sure Ashton was up to the test by ensuring that he did not fall ill during the PSLE.

The oral examinations for English and Mother Tongue started in August.

She also brewed herbal soup for him and monitored his work at night when she came back from shooting.

But Tay is careful not to put too much pressure on her sons.

"I always tell him he has to start revising early and he can't cram for the exams at the last minute."

Her eldest son Brayden is 14 so that leaves only Nathan, eight, still to tackle the PSLE challenge. "I'll think about that hurdle later," she said.

With the year-end holidays approaching, there is time to relax for now. But if the family head to the beach, Tay has to deal with another issue. Should she pack her bikini in the luggage?Read More – Source
