Frequently Asked Questions

 Frequently Asked Questions

 

Application Form

 

Q: Why is there a need to fill up the application form?
A: In AYE, enrolment into our programme is strictly based on submission of our application form and a satisfactory placement test result (refer below). If your application form is incomplete in the first place, we are unable to help you.

 

Placement Test


Q1: Will I be rejected immediately if I fail the placement test?

A: No you will not. There are several elements that we consider for the placement test and your current proficiency level is not a key priority.  However, we do place a very large emphasis on the character and learning attitude of the applicants as these are the key ingredients to success. It doesn’t matter if students cannot achieve their desired econs grades now but we are only interested to help students who really want to succeed in their A-levels / Promos.

Applicants who display a poor learning attitude or ‘forced’ by parents to attend the programme (not willing to attend in the first place) will be denied enrolment into our programme.

 

Q2: Why is a placement test necessarily? 
A: In AYE, we understand that different students have different learning potentials and learning needs. As such, the placement test is conducted on a 1-to-1 basis to help diagnose each applicant’s strengths and weaknesses before tailoring a unique solution to help each of you. Applicants identified with a weaker foundation at the end of the placement test will receive additional support.

 

Q3: Must my parent(s) come along with me for the placement test?
A: For applicants who are currently still schooling in JCs / Central Institutes (18 and below), at least one of your parents must accompany you to the placement test for their consent for you to enrol into the programme. For private candidates (19 and above), in full view of transparency, we highly recommend your parents to observe how the placement test is conducted and interact with the tutor on a face to face basis.

 

Q4: Is the placement test free of charge?
A: Yes it is. We are committed to keep this FOC (U.P: $300) to all applicants who need our help. That being said, we will have to cease this as soon as our classes are filled. Thus please note that this session is on a first come first serve basis.

 

Q5: What topics do I need to revise for the placement test?
A: The placement test is supposed to test you fairly on your existing proficiency level and mirror an exam situation. Would you know the exact topics for your exams?

 

Q6: Must I attend this placement test? Can’t I just pay to join?
A: The placement test is necessary for us to assess your existing proficiency level and help you better. Enrolment is based on positive learning attitude displayed during the placement test.

 

Q7: I am a JC1 / Private Candidate with no prior experience in Econs. Can I still attend this placement test?
A: The focus of this placement test will be adjusted to widen your exposure in Econs questions instead of proficiency testing.

 

Q8: What do I need to bring along for the placement test?
A: Our enrolment team will inform you upon receiving your application form.
