Upper Secondary School Home Tuition

After passing their final year examination in secondary two, students will moved on to the next stage of their secondary education—upper secondary school. At this point of time, students, regardless of their streams (“Special”, “Express”, “Normal (Academic)” or “Normal (Technical)”), would have determined the subjects they will prepare for during the “O” Level or Normal-level (N-level) examinations.

After passing their final year examination in secondary two, students will moved on to the next stage of their secondary education—upper secondary school. At this point of time, students, regardless of their streams (“Special”, “Express”, “Normal (Academic)” or “Normal (Technical)”), would have determined the subjects they will prepare for during the “O” Level or Normal-level (N-level) examinations.

“Normal (Academic)” stream students who have performed well in their N-level examination will be given the option to extend their studies for a fifth year and take the O-level examination. Students from the “Normal (Academic)” stream will take four to seven subjects, including English Language, Mother Tongue, Mathematics, Combined Science (combination of any two from Physics, Chemistry and Biology) and Combined Humanities. In 2004, the Ministry of Education has announced that selected students in the “Normal” steam will be allowed to sit directly for O-level examination without going through the N-level examination.

Students who graduate from secondary schools with a N-level certificate can apply for enrolment in the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), which is a vocational training school. Those with an O-level certificate will be able to apply for junior college, polytechnics and ITE.

Entrance to junior college depends on the student’s L1R5 (one language subject and five relevant subjects) aggregate and admission to polytechnics is based on the EL1R2B2, as well as specific requirements for different courses.


Intense Syllabus

Upper secondary school education is often considered an academically intense phase. Although technically, students have two years to prepare for their O-level or N-level examinations, school will typically begin examination focus training starting from the middle of the final year. That means that teachers only have one and half years to cover the syllabus required. The time critical nature often forces teachers to proceed with their teaching plan without pause and reserve the revision for the final few months.

The system makes it almost impossible for teachers to afford the time to help weaker students along the way. In many cases, by the time they reach the final stretch, students will be lagging very far behind. A lot of the onus is on the student to diligently do their revision and try to follow the pace of the class as far as possible. With the large amount of students each teacher is responsible for, there are not much the teachers can do other than organise remedial classes, which usually seats around fifteen to twenty students, or assign more homework.


Why Upper Secondary Home Tuition?

O-level and N-level examinations are essential public examinations for students who intend to continue their academic careers. Those who fail or do badly for these examinations will struggle to gain entrance to junior college, polytechnics and ITE, and will need resort to private schools. It is not uncommon for students who did not do well for their O-level examinations to retake the examination as private candidates.

Engaging home tutors for students who are struggling in upper secondary school is very helpful because as the subjects become more difficult in nature, students are more in need of personal guidance in order to gain an understanding. At this stage, most of the subject involves a certain level of understanding and not just practice alone. While students can prepare themselves by practicing past year questions, they will continue to struggle unless they understand the principles behind them.

Home tutors can offer one to one consultation and identify the areas the student is weak in. In such setting, the tutor can afford to devote time and care to iron out particular areas before moving forward so that the student will be able to establish a solid foundation.

Home Tuition Care only recommends tutors with extensive experience in helping secondary school students. Besides academic qualifications, they also have proven track records with some of them having taught in schools before.

Upper secondary school education is a very important phase for student as it determines the academic paths they will take a head. The lack of time means that it will be better to seek assistance early, so that students will be able to prepare for their important O-level and N-level examinations.
