What are the Challenges Students face in PSLE & O Level English?​

Group 165

It is no easy feat to build a firm foundation and to achieve your desired score. What are the challenges faced by our students taking the national English examinations?

PSLE English

1. Unaware of the requirements of the various PSLE English components

  • In fact, we know of pupils who are not sure about the components involved in the PSLE English paper.
  • To prepare for a battle, we need to know who or what we are up against.
  • Did you know that 1 mark in every component carries equal weightage which means that scoring 1 more mark in Grammar is the same as scoring 1 more mark in your composition?
  • Not knowing the requirements can lead to you not carrying out the right preparation!

2. Having a weak foundation in Grammar which affects various Paper 2 components

  • Surprise! Grammar is not just tested in Grammar MCQ but it extends to so many other components in Paper 2 like editing, synthesis, comprehension etc.
  • Don’t forget that accuracy in grammar will also affect the language score in your composition!
  • Building that strong foundation is going to go a long way in your PSLE English journey.

3. Not having the strategies to efficiently tackle the component

  • A key reason why some pupils do not improve in English despite doing lots of practice questions is because they are not aware of concrete strategies to apply for each component.
  • Yes, there are strategies to be applied in every component including Oral Stimulus-based Conversation, Paper 2 Editing, Synthesis, Comprehension and Composition Writing, just to name a few.
  • If you are going by instinct to answer the questions or struggling with identifying the correct clues for specific questions e.g. in Paper 2 Grammar MCQ or Cloze Passage, it is time to stop missing out.
  • Pick up the strategies to break down question types and check your answers now!

4. Unsure of the components to focus on to start making progress!

  • Do you have a strategic plan that will help you see progress and enable you to work towards a realistic goal in mind?
  • With so many components involved, which one should you focus on to start seeing a change in your results?
  • If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
  • We want to help you right where you are at and move forward with you.
