JC life is extremely fast paced
Start early with Indigo's GP Foundation
AQ is part of A level comprehension, a component which most students struggle with. Furthermore, not all IP schools teach students AQ in secondary school. To prepare students for A levels and their varied AQs in school, students are taught to tackle AQ in advance.
INTERPRETING ESSAY QUESTIONS
Students often misinterpret their essay questions and lose focus in their writing. They are unable to come up with succinct topic sentences that addresses the essay question. The problem of misinterpretation partly stems from the lack of essay writing practice.
LACK OF CONTENT
In secondary school, students often rely on their language to pull up their marks. However, with a change in essay content-language mark ratios in JC, students will find it even harder to score due to a lack of content. It is important to start early in their preparation for A levels.
LIMITED KNOWLEDGE & DEPTH OF CURRENT AFFAIRS
Current affairs is the gospel of GP. Students require more concrete evidence in upper sec, where anecdotal evidence is no longer accepted. GP requires sufficient current affairs about the world as well as Singapore, ranging from politics to science and technology. Sadly, many students are not proactive in keeping abreast with current affairs. Even if they read cursorily, many have difficulties distilling the significance of the current affairs relevant to Argumentative essays.
