No idea if that is wise of me. I don't have a crystal ball. Keeping my fingers crossed :xedfingers:
Wat is easier to score in humanities?
Combined ss/ geo OR combined ss/ history
Pure history , pure geo , Lit , computing ?

I can only comment on SS/Geog or SS/Hist based on my DS's experience.

He told me it's easier to score SS/Geog n many in his school did very well compared to SS/Hist but if you don't have interest in the particular subject, then it's going to be tough to score.

DS preferred Hist to Geog n although it's tougher than Geog, he still tried his best.

So at the end of the day, i feel it's best to follow your interest in the subject rather than take the one which is easier to score.

Following their interest will keep them going when the going gets tough. That was my advise to my kids when they consulted me regarding their subjects combi. My gal took pure geo & my son took ss/hist, eventually both of them scored well.

I thought SS is compulsory. :scratchhead:
If your dd took pure Geog, did she also take combined SS/with another humanities subject?

Hello, i am a student who graduated from jc last year, so my memory of sec 2 streaming is still fresh :)

A thing to always note when it comes to streaming/selecting your combination is to firstly, look at the subjects you're interested in, and secondly, look at the subjects that you are good at, and have the potential to score well in. (BUT interest may not always mean that you'll score well)

Judging from your dilemma, i'm curious to know which subjects you are keen in, and what do you intend to work as in the future. It may seem a long time away, but your choice of subjects now may determine what subjects you get to take at a tertiary level and even in uni. Are you more of a science student, or a humanities student? Do you want to working in the science or arts field in the future?

Also, as a student who has sat for the o-levels and done my fair share of worrying over the exams, I can pretty much assure you that as long as you put in consistent effort towards your studies in sec 3 and 4, leading up to Os, it is very much possible to do well in subjects that you thought you might not perform stellar in. :)

Thanks For You Reply ! ^^

Looking Through My MYE Scores , My Best Subjects are Higher Mother Tougue ( A1 ) , Literature ( A1 ) , History ( A1 ) And Mathematics ( A2 ) , well my weaker ones are my English ( C5 ... ) , Science ( B3 ) .

I should think that I am more of an ' Arts ' / Humanities Student ? I prefer more of my language subjects and Humanities , but is really uncertain about the other subjects... Especially when i need to take A Maths As A compulsory subjects , along with Science...

I tend to hope that i can word towards the literature study of my language subjects or history... But work wise... Im Really Unsure what i can take.

:thankyou:

I actually adopt a different viewpoint than most people. Don't pigeonhole yourself into an arts/science person. I think more importantly you should learn how to study well. When you reach university level things are going to be pretty hard- talent can only get you so far.

Hi! You do appear to be an arts student, and judging by your results, i don't think you'll have any problem at all performing well at Os! :)

Also, a B3 for science is pretty good, imo. It's not THE best, but i'll say it's above average. Like i said, most students, including myself, tend to perform better in the actual Os bc it's easier as compared to school papers. In my case, I was C, D, E chem student right up till prelims, but I managed to get a B for pure chemistry! And As for like 3-4 of my subjects!

You also seem to be doing well for maths at sec 2 level, so you needn't worry too much about that. A-maths is something most students tend to struggle with when they first learn it, but it's not something that is insurmountable or too challenging. With the help from your teachers and your already pretty good abilities in math i'm sure you'll be able to do well!
