We specialise in the following subjects for Junior College:
Level | Subjects | |
---|---|---|
Junior College (JC) A-Level, Singapore-Cambridge GCE Advanced Level | • Higher 2 Mathematics (H2 Math) • Higher 1 Mathematics (H1 Math) |
In terms of syllabus, H2 math is more weighted in pure math problems, while H1 math is more weighted in statistics. It is a common misconception that H1 Math is easier than H2 Math. H1 questions are just as rigorous as H2, but H1 syllabus covers only half of H2.
H2 Math is a pre-requisite for many university courses, including Computing, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics and Science. Due to its essential role in tertiary education, H2 Math is the most popular subject in JC
H2 Math builds on the foundation topics of Additional Math (A-Math) taught in secondary math. Therefore, students with no prior knowledge of A-Math may find it difficult to qualify for H2 Math in JC, and most of them opt to take H1 Math.
Subject | Pure Math | Statistics |
---|---|---|
H2 Math Paper 1 | 100 marks | - |
H2 Math Paper 2 | 40 marks | 60 marks |
Total 200 marks | 140 marks | 60 marks |
H1 Math | 40 marks | 60 marks |
For some students, H2 Math can be a nightmare. It is ruthlessly more difficult than Additional Math (A-Math) and demands new skills. For example, students must learn to use graphing calculators not taught at O-Level. Precise algebraic skills are critical, and careless mistakes are penalised heavily. Furthermore, most A-Level questions are non-routine, making it impossible to do well in H2 Math by merely regurgitating the notes.
The gap between H2 Math and A-Math has widened over the years, with A-Math removing core topics such as Modulus, Sum & Product of Roots and the Trigonometric Factor Formulas. This means that even for O-Level students who have done well for A-Math, they still may not be immediately ready for H2 Math. The removal of topics from A-Math effectively shifts the workload from O-Level to A-Level, making H2 Math even more content-heavy.
To succeed, students must develop a genuine interest in the subject, attempt challenging questions, and practice consistently. Self-discipline and grit are both the necessary traits, and the intended outcomes of your math education. You will benefit from a patient tutor during weekly 2-hour A-Level H2 Math lessons. Whether you take one-to-one or group JC H2 Math tuition, our comprehensive teaching style will guide you to think deeply about your learning.
Students who did not take A-Math in secondary school must pass a qualifying test in JC in order to take H2 math. In such cases, students are required to self-study two years worth of A-Math topics to catch up with their peers. Topics such as Logarithms, Partial Fractions, Binomial Theorem, Differentiation and Integration are riddled with nuances which require proper guidance from a specialised math tutor.
We offer a holiday crash course for O-Level students who did not take A-Math, but wish to take H2 Math in JC. Cramming two years of A-Math topics in a few months is not an easy task. Even if you pass the qualifying test to take H2 Math, it is only the tip of the iceberg. It is critical that you build a solid foundation in the O-Level topics before JC1 begins, and attending our holiday crash course can help you achieve that.
