SECONDARY EDUCATION – LEARNING FROM A DIVERSE RANGE OF SUBJECTS, HOLISTIC APPROACH
After leaving their primary education, students embark on their journey in secondary school. When students are in secondary school, some might find it hard to adjust accordingly. In secondary school, students are exposed to a much higher numbers of subjects as compared to in primary school. Some of these subjects are very new to the students, for example, Literature, History, Social Studies, Geography and many others. With so many new and foreign subjects being introduced and school hours being longer, it might be better to engage some professional guidance from tutors for the children. Helping these students early will allow them to follow better during lessons and ensure that they do not lack too far behind in comparison to their peers.
The students are being streamed into different schools after their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). Being in a school that they stream into, they are now in a much more competitive environment. Students will be learning at a rate base on his or her PSLE scores thus it is important that they are on task and understands the topics in their daily learning. After 4 or 5 years of secondary school, students will have to sit for their N levels or O levels depending on the stream they are in. These results from the N and O levels will help them get into polytechnics courses or junior colleges.
