S1-4 Challenging Science
Think like a proton – always positive.
Our lower Secondary Science program helps students with their transition from the basic primary level to the much more complex secondary level. Once students are acclimated to the demands of challenging scientific theories and formulas, they will then be progressively introduced to the specialised Sciences – Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Students will get familiar with the different topical approaches, and develop an ability to break down question requirements with speed and accuracy. On top of broadening their Science knowledge, our students will also be trained on their critical thinking to answer questions with ease.
Designed to help bridge the gap between simple Primary Science and the more demanding Secondary Science, our course progressively steps up the difficulty once our students are comfortable with the new content and requirements of their answers. They will also be introduced to the different answering techniques for questions in each section of the Science papers. As a three-in-one Secondary Science course, we have structured our curriculum into bite-size portions that make it easier for students to absorb and understand. At the end of our course, our students will be familiar with the main lower Secondary concepts taught in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
Exposure to questions through regular weekly practices, engaging classroom discussion, and homework will adequately cover the grounds for students’ development of:
- Topical Approaches
- Question analysis and processing skills
- Ability to answer higher-order Science questions
- Answering techniques
