Preparing for SAP practicals exams for Sec 3

Postby CarrotTree » Mon Sep 10, 2012 10:47 pm

Hi,
Can experienced students / parents advise me on SAP practicals for 3 subjects Physics, Chem and Biology.
My child in Sec 3 this year and will be taking the practicals soon in Oct 2012.

Advice needed for the followings:
(1) How to prepare and any reference books in popular bookstores to use?
(2) Are the tests the same throughout all schools in singapore?
(3) Any tuition centres offer classes for weak students?

Thanks

Hi. I hope my answers help.

(1) How to prepare and any reference books in popular bookstores to use?
There are no reference books for O level SPA.

(2) Are the tests the same throughout all schools in singapore?
No, the tests could be different.

(3) Any tuition centres offer classes for weak students?

For Skill 1 and 2: just need to pay attention in class and the last few practices that the teacher. Example: how to draw tables with headings, things to take note of during practicals.

Otherwise, you might want to hire an ex-sch teacher or a current teacher who was/is trained in SPA as SPA's marks is 20% of O level grade.
