Hi, can anymore tell me where I can get Sec 3 SA1 2016 school papers for Social Studies? It will be good if there is the Answer Scheme too.

Willing to pay for it if need be, but would be nice it is free.

Thanks ahead.

I don't think SS exam papers are on sale. Never see at all.

The only way is to get an exchange from other schools. But my DS told me that the school will usually give the students other schools' papers for practice nearer to O levels. For Sec 3, the school just concentrate on the syabulus n teach the students correct answering techniques. They don't encourage students to practise other schools' papers.

Hi!


There is no need to get model answers. All you have to do is look through the worksheets and papers that your school has provided you with. Before you go into revising those worksheets, read through the chapters in the textbook first.


We understand that it is a lot of chapters but if you will to treat it like a storybook and understand the content slowly, both SS and Geo are actually quite simple.


Lastly, school teachers are always available! Do an arrangement with them during school time and see how they can help you after school hours. :)


Passionate teachers are engineers of a child's life. We are certain they will help you out. Cheers!

There is still time. Best to seek consultation from the teachers. They are the best source of help. SS n E Geog are not just memorizing.

It's mastering the correct answering technique that will help the student manage the subject.

Don't think there are model answers n advisable not to rely on model answers as they may not be accurate.

Perhaps memorising the content is not the direction ur child should take. Explore different methods?
