6 problems JC students face
1. Exam questions are so different from what is taught is class
Teachers in school spend time prioritising the introduction of content over problem solving and exam techniques. This makes school lessons boring and often do not provide pinpoint help for exam needs.
2. Large amount of time spent on projects
Most students spend an average of 90-120 hours on their coursework. This leaves little time for proper exam preparations.
3. Unable to pinpoint what to prioritise
Each subject covers a wide range of topics, emphasising breadth over depth. Students learn widely but struggle to pinpoint what to prioritise for exams.
4. Lack exposure to exam style questions
The A level exams are known to be set on a few iterations of specific question types. Students who lack exposure to question trend and analysis do not fare well in the exams.
5. Tight timeline in school
The tight timeline leaves students with little time to provide a comprehensive coverage. Students should start their own A level preparations way in advance. Students do not have sufficient time to review what they learnt after each term.
