Sec 3 - Social Studies

Postby zbear » Thu Apr 24, 2014 4:17 pm

Need to hear from mums out there - how is your child coping with SS?

My son failed his first test.

I have no idea what this subject is all about n what he should do to improve.

Can anyone share?

It will help a lot if he reads widely on current affairs both locally n globally (apart from text book).
