Sec school specialising in humanities

Postby kaitlynangelica » Thu Oct 22, 2015 5:17 pm

Is there any particular secondary school that emphasies more on humanities?

My dd is stronger in her languages. Been struggling with math and science all the way.

All sec schools offer humanities, but hearsay is that some do have more options (eg. some may not offer full Lit at O levels). You may have to ask around. But the sec 1-2 subjects are the same in all schools, and some minium amount of maths and science is still required at O level, and one (usually Maths) as the "contrasting subject" at A level.

I agree with slmkhoo. Its compulsory for all schools to have both sciences n humanities. Humanities subjects offered at O levels may differ in different schools.

So you need to check out from the schools that you have in mind.

Googled and found this. Seems that nygh has special humanities programme at sec 3 and sec 4. Any other secondary school has such special humanities programmes?

I only remembered humanities scholarship during JC years last time, but not in secondary school?
