Students will complete the GCE O-Level Chemistry syllabus by June. This intentional approach ensures sufficient time for you to achieve mastery, effectively bridge gaps, cultivate essential exam skills, and confidently tackle exam- grade O-Level questions.

Main Challenges


There is too much content in Chemistry and too little time. Students struggle with major topics like Acid, Bases and Salts, electrochemistry and Organic Chemistry.


Misinterpreting the question will affect the extended parts of the exam question. There is a high cost to going off track from the start of the question. Furthermore, it implies that there are more misinterpretations of similar questions.


Most of the questions require application. With most students adopting passive forms of learning like reading, highlighting, and copying textbooks, they struggle to answer application questions. In O levels, application questions take up a large section of their entire O level grade.

Indigo Pedagogy TM

Simplifying Complex Content

Learn essential strategies and approaches to grasp and solve O-Level grade chemistry questions and topics that students must master at the O-Level examinations.

Cultivate Higher-Order Thinking Skills

We focus on cultivating higher-order thinking skills in Express students so that they can confidently apply concepts within unfamiliar contexts, pre-emptively averting common pitfalls encountered during the examinations.
Often, concepts between O-Level Chemistry chapters are related, and students are required to link several concepts across different topics to answer questions. At Indigo, O-Level students are trained to break down complex concepts to better analyse question types. Adopting this teaching method allows students to better understand concepts and be able to produce concise answers suited to the requirements of different question types for O-Level examinations.

Exam Skills And Answering Techniques

We train students to adopt the marker’s perspective, developing the ability to construct coherent thought processes so they are able to produce concise answers suited to the different question types.

What Indigo students say

The frameworks and acronyms that Indigo taught me have helped me to generate ideas effectively even when facing unfamiliar and novel questions. Distinguishing the question types using the VIPERCJ model has also improved my question analysis skills, allowing me to target key terms and answer the question. In addition, model essays and current affairs notes have provided me with salient examples to use in essays. Furthermore, regular comprehension and summary practice, especially with past A level papers, has enabled me to hone my skills in timed conditions.

The answering techniques and real-world examples learned in Indigo have strengthened my essay arguments, making them more compelling and concrete! My tutor’s guidance and patience has helped me to develop a strong foundation towards tackling essay questions and creating effective outlines!

I wasn’t coping well and and got a U for my J1 Chemistry Promotional Exams. My tutor explained difficult concepts from scratch and debunked the common misconceptions students have. Even if it took him multiple attempts to explain difficult concepts, he was willing to do so. I am grateful that I eventually got an A for Chemistry at the A-level examinations.

Indigo has prepared me well to tackle the weirdest and unconventional of questions with a measured approach.
Indigo has imparted many invaluable skills for my GP studies. Throughout my 5 years in Indigo, not only was I taught various answering techniques to conquer Paper 2, I was also exposed to a wide range of topics, all the way from politics to interesting topics like architecture. Indigo has also helped me keep up with the relevant current affairs, keeping me afloat on the happenings of today, while offering new and novel perspective to these issues. All these certainly played a crucial role in allowing me to eventually ace the papers!

Switching to Indigo Chemistry was definitely one if the best choices I made in JC. My tutor can break down complex concepts down to details we can understand. The notes provided are top notch and objective, being very exam centric and covering many commonly asked questions as well as commonly misunderstood concepts. I have never gotten higher than a C in my school exams, but I got an A in A level.
Through my tutor’s explanations as well as the amazing GP notes, I was able to score an A in GP (I have never gotten above a B). The indigo GP notes — although long— are actually filled with great case studies and evaluations. The current affairs section also enhances our general knowledge — important for the mastery of the GP.
