Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question, kohjl! Part of my concern was whether they are as good as the true maths hub in Bukit Batok. I will definitely give it some consideration. Currently, the problem is in finding a suitable time slot for my DS. Also, I need to train him on t...

My son was eligible to do RA in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, History and Geog. He was in a dilemma whether to choose two Science RA subjects or to go for the two that he REALLY liked, ie one Science and one Humanities.
