Private Candidate Econs Intensive Revision Programme


Dear Private Candidates,


If your A level results last year was disappointing, it usually means you can’t enter a local university or in some cases, not being able to repeat JC2 in school as you did not fail your GP unfortunately. Your options at this stage are to enter a private university OR retake A level Econs along with the rest of your H1 and H2 subjects.


And should you choose to retake A level Econs this year, it means that you have set yourself for a tough journey. Statistically, 40% of the Private Candidates fared worse in the second try and in case if you are wondering why, here are the top 6 reasons:


  • The syllabus has changed for H2. It means that what you have learnt previously may be obsolete!


  • You haven’t been studying since the release of ‘A’ level results. By the time you’ve decided to retake your exams, it’s around April and it means that you have only half a year to prepare for a major exam. Especially for girls that are ‘borderline’ cases, your official rejection from a local university may only come in around  June / July Period, leaving you with only 4 months to prepare for a major exam;


  • Being out of touch of the exam syllabus is another big problem! Many of you will find it tough to revise yourself as you can no longer recall the exact answering requirements. Your JC teachers are no longer there to guide you too. You are left alone to fend for yourself!


  • For the girls, revising alone at home can be extremely challenging as you no longer have your classmates and teachers to push you. Many female private candidates simply slacken off in the later half of the year watching Youtube videos at home instead of studying;


  • For the boys, revising alone in NS is even worse. You have to struggle between your daily rigorous NS training & your night studies. Not to mention that your NS buddies have already cleared their A levels and will be constantly tempting you to “chill” with them in the bunk. Bad environment!


  • Stakes are extremely high – performing poorly is no longer an option as nobody studies A level for 3 years (you are actually better off taking a diploma!)


So what happens if you flop your A level Econs exams again?


Slide11. Say goodbye to any remaining hopes of entering local university and your dream course


Competition into local universities is only getting tougher, with Indicative Grade Profiles of the top 4 local universities constantly rising:



And why is this so? This is because for every cohort, there is a limited amount of intakes and unlike local JCs, these intakes are subjected to a higher available quota of foreign scholars, meaning you not only have to compete locally with your current ‘A’ level batch but also have to outwit the brightest foreign minds to secure your course at a local university. Tough luck!


Expensive University2. Pay up to three times the amount of school fees to enter a foreign university which may not be widely recognised by local employers.


According to local Straits Times article:

ST article


Local universities’ grads are better sought after, with better employment prospects and offered higher median salaries as compared foreign universities’ grad. Why is this so? This is because of employers’ perception of foreign universities being inferior to local universities and this stigma towards foreign universities will never change so long as you are seeking employment in Singapore (thanks & no thanks to our paper chase culture).


Fast forward 4 years down the road (6 years if you are serving NS) – you have sunk over $100,000 over a foreign degree due to a mediocre ‘A’ level grade and despite graduating with a decent honours from the foreign university,  your starting pay as compared to your peer’s from local university is still steeply discounted at approximately 30%.  


Lastly, your current job status & your starting pay will always be a conversation starter when you have gatherings with your ex – JC / university mates. Enough said!


Wondering now if it is too late to start revision?
