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.

Blueprint to Secure an 'A1' Grade for Chemistry

How prepared are you to tackle the challenges of O-Level Chemistry?

A compulsory science subject for all express students, O-Level Chemistry requires students to have a strong understanding of scientific knowledge, effective time management, critical analytic skills and precise answering techniques. At Indigo Chemistry tuition classes, 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 questions. 80% of our curriculum time spent on higher-order thinking questions, training students to apply concepts in unfamiliar contexts. This will also stretch their thinking as they are more flexible in application and reinforces their understanding of concepts.

With over thousands of students under our belt, and 97% of students improving by at least 2 grades, scoring distinction for O-Level Chemistry is a formula comprising of the right guidance from teachers and commitment from students. Join Singapore’s leading O-Level Chemistry tuition centre now!

Main Challenges

Overwhelming content

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.

Identifying deceptive content

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.

Questions that are beyond "difficult"

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-Level, 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.

Quality Study Materials

In Line With Latest O-Level Exams Syllabus And Notes

Materials are carefully crafted for easy exam revision. This includes concise notes, power summaries, effective worked examples and quick test questions.

Curated questions to build a strong foundation

Quick conceptual MCQs and structured questions are carefully designed to expose gaps in understanding.​ Tiered questions to help students practice common questions that require critical thinking.

Homework on Demand

Consolidated practices are also included at the end of every topic to help reinforce concepts learnt and gauge individual understanding.

Robust out of class support 

Telegram support

Allows students can ask questions whenever they arise, without having to wait for the next session. This allows them to learn at their own pace, without constraints.

Complimentary Consultations

Complimentary consultation to clarify doubts, bridge the learning gaps and get specific guidance on areas for improvements
