Preparation for your child's tertiary education
The hardest stage of education at most Singaporeans's lives
Junior College (JC) is a two-year academic course that is certainly not an easy one. JC students face tremendous pressure because choosing to go down the A level path ultimately leads to only one destination; either enrol in a university. Else, your child will have to start looking for a job, or look for an alternative education option, (e.g. diploma). There is added pressure here, since A-level certificates holders won’t have much choices when it comes to career prospects. The goal here is very simple; make it to a university.
It is not uncommon for students' results to crash and burn when they enter JC, and along with it, their sanity and ability to cope with the stress induced. The level of difficulty is significantly higher than in Secondary school and majority of students simply find it excruciatingly difficult to cope with the increased workload.
Moreover, JC1 students have to cope with passing their mother tongue (should they have not taken it during their secondary education) and their Project Work (PW), which takes up a lot of their time. The first year of transitioning to a lecture and tutorial style of education is already being obstructed by additional commitments, be it CCAs or external projects. It is unreasonable to expect that all students will be able to make the transition easily without any negative impacts on their learning and education
If your child is struggling in their recent JC examinations and unable to keep up with the content, it might be time to seriously consider engaging a private tutor for your child.

Apart from negating the need to travel to a tuition centre (since a home tutor will travel to your doorstep), the actual teaching and guidance your child receives from the JC teacher conducting the class is much less as compared to in a private tuition, where the your child can have undivided attention from the tutor, which is just not possible in a conventional classroom environment.
The difficulty of the A levels examination will increase year after year, there is no question about that. Concepts to grasp are getting more and more complex, with questions now focusing on real world application and requiring students to make thoughtful and mature judgments.
