In early Jan this year, Straits Times reported that there is a change in the syllabus and exam format for Social Studies for this year's Sec 3 batch.

How is the new exam format like for Sec 3 students?

Perfect guide for SS has been pulled off the shelves. Any other good reference or guide book instead?

Hello kiasuparents and students,

I would like to recommend a friend of mine who is an excellent Social Studies/ History tutor that has personally given me invaluable guidance. He is committed to helping his students excel in the upcoming SA2 or O Level examinations, and has a background in RI, RJ, NUS Medicine and is currently working as a medical doctor (yes!). Limited slots are available because of his busy schedule, but if you are looking for a tutor to help you get that A, I believe he is your go-to person.

For details please PM me or contact 97884680.

All the best to everybody!
