Secondary school education in Singapore is basically categorised into the 3 streams namely, the Express Stream, Normal (Academic) Stream, and the Normal (Technical) Stream. Secondary 1 students’ placements into any of the stream are determined by their PSLE aggregate scores. Express stream students generally attend 4 years of school and sit for their ‘O’ Levels examinations, whereas the Normal (Academic) and (Technical) stream students attend 4 years of school and sit for their ‘N(A)’ Levels & ‘N(T)’ Levels examinations respectively. N(A) students generally proceed to a 5th year of secondary school to sit for the ‘O’ Levels as well.
There is also a separate stream called the Integrated Programme (IP) whereby students within the top 10% of the national cohort will be eligible to enrol in. Students in the IP are exempted from taking the ‘O’ Levels. Instead, they attend 6 years of secondary education before sitting for either the ‘A’ Levels exam, International Baccalaureate, or an equivalent exam.
Lower & Upper Secondary School Levels
Students entering into Secondary schools may find it challenging and tough to adapt from Primary school as they will be introduced to new subjects such as Literature, Geography, History, Design & Technology and Food & Nutrition, apart from the core subjects like English, Mathematics, Science, and Mother Tongue. As they progress on to upper Secondary levels (Secondary 3 and above), even more subjects will be added onto their curriculum with the likes of Additional Mathematics, Principles of Accounts, Combined Sciences (Physics, Chemistry & Biology), as well as Combined Humanities (Geography, History & Literature).
Secondary Levels Home Tuition in Singapore
It is very common for Secondary students to feel stressful and anxious over their academic performances as many struggles to fully understand or even to catch up with what is being taught in school. Having experienced and qualified Home Tutor to customise lessons according to the individual needs and learning methods is extremely crucial and essential. The Home Tutor can assess the student during the 1st lesson and determine where the student’s weak areas are and then prepare the appropriate lesson plans accordingly. This is something that no group tuition tutor nor school teacher is able to provide. Home Tutors who are familiar and experienced with examination syllabuses will be able to share with the student study tips that can enable faster and easier learning. This increases the student’s level of understanding and confidence in the subject at hand, thus improving results in the fastest and efficient way. The Home Tutor will also be able to provide Parents with timely feedback on their child’s progress so that both Parents and Tutor can work hand in hand in order to maximise the child’s learning process. In this sense, having a Home Tutor for your child is THE MOST effective and efficient way to improve his/her results!
