I need help!!! retake olevel

Postby Dopecheck » Tue Jan 14, 2014 4:25 pm

Hi
i've scored L1R4 18points for my o-level. basically theres limited choices -_-

I've scored D7 for english, 3 B3s, 1A2. (sec 5 btw, 18 y/o this coming sept)

i'm eligible for certain courses in the various poly
however i'm thinking of retaking my english but i've no idea how should i go about retaking it because i'm under the old syllabus (1127) and not (1128). so, if i were to retake, will I fall under the new syllabus?

if i were to retake my olevel english, can i study poly and prepare for o-level english concurrently?

will there be a slimmer chance for me to enter local university?

or do you think i shouldn't retake my english?

please advice

i've to submit my jae by this coming friday!

urgent!

Sad to hear that you failed your english. I feel that you should choose a more suitable course that allows a D7 for english. Ever since they introduced 1128,it became more challenging. I doubt you can master the skills in less than a year. So i recommend that you go ahead with poly. You can also jpsae if you have any hidden talents.

My niece retook her English in the old syllabus in the recent 'O' levels. She went on to the Poly after the 'O's and took the English paper as a private candidate.

The 1127 can not be taken anymore. 2013 was the last year. So if you would like to retake,you have to take 1128.

choose poly and retake your eng as private candidate. some courses accept D7 with the requirement that you re-take english and pass it before you graduate.

The only way you can retake 1127 O Levels is to retain in school and take it as a school candidate. Looking at your results, I doubt you can do that.

The only choice left is to retake your O Levels but in 1128 English.

If you are admitted to the DAE programme, you can retake your O Levels (1128) and study in a poly concurrently. If you choose to take O Levels as a private candidate (not in DAE), you would still have to take 1128. But if you score well, you'll have many more choices than what you have now.

As for local university, if you are admitted into a local polytechnic (and work very very hard), you stand a chance in entering. But if you choose to take up a private diploma, the chances for local uni are definitely lower, or close to zero.
