General Paper (GP) is a compulsory academic subject in the GCE ‘A’ Levels curriculum to be taken by every student in the Junior Colleges in Singapore. Unlike the English Language taken in Secondary Levels, which is aimed at covering the basics, from stringing a coherent sentence to writing cogent essays and having a good control and command of English, GP is designed to aid the development of critical thinking ability of the students, their ability to contrive strong arguments and also to convey their ideas using clear, effective and accurate language.
Studying GP in Singapore
GP is made up of two papers (Paper 1 and Paper 2), with Paper 1 comprising a wide range of topics including, Economy, Sciences, History, Politics, Religions, Philosophy etc. as well as topics of global concern and of local interest. While Paper 2 is made up of one or two passages of continuous prose, where students are expected to prove their ability to understand, deduce, evaluate and sum up within a period of 90 minutes. GP is more advanced compared to English Language offered in Secondary levels.
Difficulties of Studying GP
GP is perceived by many students to be difficult as it involves much technicality and substantial general knowledge on wide range of topics, issues and situations around the world. This might pose a difficulty to students as to where and how to structure their readings and also as most students are not much aware about events and happenings around the world. But these problems can be taken proper care of with the help of a GP Home Tutor, as the students would be properly guided, trained and given tips and things to keep a lookout for.
