JC tuition is the only way for many students to keep up with the competition for good
grades and entry to do highly marketable courses at the university. Junior College is a 2 year course
culminating into the GCE A level exam which will determine entry into a university. Your
child has finally made it to JC after successfully completing the secondary O level exam and passing well.
However, challenges galore accompany this new level.
When a student from secondary school enters Junior
College, it is a whole new ball game all together. They have to master the rules of yet another level
to succeed. The Ministry of Education subscribes that all junior college students take a
combination of 3 H2 subjects and 1 H1 subject or a combination of 4
H2 subjects and one H1 subject. The subjects combinations vary in different colleges but subjects offered fall
broadly into the science and maths group subject and arts and humanities group subjects. However, students have
to make sure that they do contrasting subjects in their combinations, that is science stream
students have to do a humanities or arts related subject and vice versa for the humanities and arts students'
JC tuition Subjects include H1 and H2 math, physics, biology and chemistry and H2
computing. Languages include H1 Chinese, Tamil and Malay. French, German and Japanese qualify
as both H1 and H2 Languages. The Humanities and Arts group subjects include H1 and H2 English
Literature, economics, geography, Chinese History, History among others. Purely H2 Arts and Humanities include
English language and Linguistics, Chinese, Malay and Tamil literature and Theatre Studies and drama among
others. For commerce groups subjects offered at H2 are Principles of Accounting and Business Management and at
H1 economics. Other subjects include General paper offered as a H1
subject and Knowledge and inquiry as a H2 subject. This is the world of JC Tuition.
If your children had an upper secondary
tuition tutor they are way ahead because their tutor would have already advised them what subject
combinations are going to be most suitable for them at Junior college. However, if your children do not have a
tutor now they are in Junior College, it is not too late, to request for a JC tuition tutor. This way, they will be helped to navigate the new world of
more complex subjects and higher ways of thinking and doing exams.
JC teachers try their level best to give their students all the information and
learning in class but they are also restricted by time and other activities they have to attend to in the course
of their duties such as setting exams and marking them without mentioning preparing lesson notes and issuing
assignments and supervising students. They are also overwhelmed by a good number of students in class noting
that the ratio of teacher to student at JC college classes are higher than that of secondary schools. With these
challenges for a student, only enrolling in a JC tuition programme can help a serious student
make it. So do not hesitate to get the necessary information as soon as possible for hiring a JC tuition tutor from PSJ, you will not regret it.
