Dear J2 students,


You have just received your Promos result and you’ve got a  ‘S’ / ‘U’ grade. Although you are promoted to J2 (through the merits of your other H2 subjects), you clearly knew that you have barely scrap through your first year and your foundation in year 1 is extremely weak. And truth to be told, the result is a mirror reflection of yourself & here’s the top 7 interpretations of your result:


  • You’ve been too involved in your CCA commitments and simply have no time to revise your lecture notes;


  • You’ve been sub-consciously neglecting your revision for Econs (especially if you are doing H1) as it is not your strength as compared to subjects like Maths. You’ve even promised yourself to revise intensively during the June Holidays but you kept procrastinating it;


  • You dread looking through your lecture notes which are as thick as a dictionary and it never fails to drive you to sleep;


  • You’ve tried hard before to revise and even tried to memorise model essays. But as it turns out, you still kept scoring “Us” since your block tests and have given up on revising anymore;


  • Your school’s Econ tutor is clearly dreadful in his/her teaching and you’ve given up all hopes trying to schedule any personal consultation with him/her.  


  • You often misplanned your essays and when you realised you are writing out of point, you trash the existing one, resulting in very little time to complete.


  • You are perfectly strong in content and have no problems understanding the concepts covered in school. However whenever it comes to exam scenario, you “somehow” misinterpret the question or don’t really know what the exact answering requirements, resulting in long thinkings & inability to finish your exams.


And if any of these 8 reasons persist, you realise that you are just one step closer to score another ‘S’ or ‘U’ grade for your A level’s. 


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


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:

igpigpAnd 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!


Repeat as a Private Candidate2. Repeat alone as a private candidate for one full year


We’ve coached many Private Candidates who confided in us some of their deepest regrets (for those who do not know, “Private Candidates” are students who did not qualify to enrol into local universities or their ideal courses and had to spend one full year to study for the A Levels themselves).


The #1 top regret they would eagerly like to share with all their juniors is:


Don’t underestimate the difficulty of ‘A’ level Econs and revise early.


‘A’ level Economics is an application-based subject which requires thorough understanding and constant practice. Most of them tried to “memorise” their way through without understanding as a last minute shortcut and this ended up costing their Econs grades.

In our recent article featured on TODAY written by our Chief Educator Mr Jeffrey Teo, we have worked with too many private candidates and statistically, 40% will do worse during their second try.


And the three biggest pains that all of them have to endure with a poor Econs grade are:


  • 1 full year wasted –The fact that they had to repeat privately for 1 full year means that this has cost 1 full year of their youth & 1 full year behind their peers (not to mention the huge sum of additional tuition fees to be incurred as you will no longer have access to support from your ex-JC teachers).


  • 4 months of nightless sleep after A levels – many of them could not sleep properly as they were constantly worried about their results while their peers who revised hard really enjoyed their break from graduation and had a peace of mind.


  • Struggling between National Service & self-revision – While all your army friends are relaxing and chilling in the bunk after a tough field exercise, you clearly do not have this choice (furthermore, the environment in NS is clearly not conducive enough for revision).


Expensive University3. 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!


So what if we tell you it is still possible to score an ‘A’ in your upcoming A levels back with our ironclad guarantee for results?
