LIFE IS VERY COMPETITIVE

Whether you are in primary school, the Express/IP/IB streams - you need to score higher marks

Exams will be a huge struggle once you fall behind in the syllabus

Before you let that happen, you MUST catch up and be thoroughly familiar with the breadth and depth that is required during your exams

Transform your understanding of the complex syllabus
Make sure that what you are studying now is actually really aligned to the MOE exam requirements

The wrong study skills will erode your ability to answer the questions the way that the exam marker expects you to, in order to score that A - especially when your classmates, schoolmates or students from other schools are able to give those correct answers

Answer According To What The Exam Markers Expect From You

Your Grades Will Determine Which Class, School, Junior College/Polytechnic, and University You Will Be Accepted Into
