I mean, I get that it is to support the MOE STEM program to generate more engineers... but any other reasons?
Sec 2 to 3 streaming into Triple sci is toughest to get in... the rest of the subjects combination only allow for double sci which is physics and chemistry..
and where to get good notes on Bio from Sec1-4? Are there even tuition sessions for these?
While Biology seems really fun in secondary school, it is a totally different ball game from Sec 3 onwards. Tons of materials to remember and you don't score any points if you don't catch the key words. It gets worse in JC when we talk about DNA and genomics.
I would usually advise students to be clear of their strengths/weakness when choosing their combination in Sec 2. Liking the subject and doing well is two different thing. You will grow to hate the subject if you consistently do badly.
And last but not least, the fact is that there are lots of life science graduates who had difficulties advancing their career in related areas.
PSLE marks the graduation of Primary school students and their entry into Secondary schools as teenagers. Discuss all issues about Secondary schooling here.
We never needed it for biology so I can't recommend you anyone personally, but you can check these 3 websites me and my colleagues usually find the tutor through one of these platforms.fuqi wrote:Hi, any recommendation for biology tuition for secondary 3?
