Help! to pass Higher Chinese O level!

Hey everyone!

I know I sound quite desperate to be posting so close to the o level date
but i really need some last minute tips on HCL O level!
i've been passing higher chinese since sec 1 til i recently failed marginally(by 0.25m ) (eventually i passed when they round up, but ahh well, it's not considered passing) for my prelims. i am really worried and i need some tips on how to ensure that i get C6 and above for o levels!

my grades:
last year mye - b4
last year eoy - b4
this year mye - c5
this prelims - d7

last year, my express chinese attained B3 (merit for oral). is it likely that i will fail my higher chinese? if so, is there anything i can do to push up the marks slightly to a pass?

does anyone know what the bell curve is like for higher chinese also? what is the national percentage passes?

i am really worried and i quite desperately need the -2 points! my other subjects are doing well, so all i need is to pass my higher chinese

please help me!!!

Totally understandable pal! I may have come from a Cantonese speaking family but preferred using English in communication =)

Spoken Chinese is still alright for me but definitely not written Chinese

Don't panic. Read carefully, answer the question in simple words. Don't try to use words you never seen at the very last minute.

Plan before you go to the exam hall. Which type of essay are you going to write?
Not good in describing with fanciful words or phrases? Don't choose narrative.
Choose other essays that focuses more on logical thinking.

We are not you. We don't know your strength and weaknesses. You have to work it out and attempt the exam strategically since you don;t have much time.

All the best!

Why do you need the two points for? Which JC you going?

Re: Help! to pass Higher Chinese O level!

thank you! I will write bao zhang or yi lun wen... I usually cannot write narrative cos my vocab stinks. At least the other two can crap points is it necessary to have some vocab though? Other than those ming ren ming yan?
would u say that I can fail even if I dont li ti? Im afraid of such a possibility... I think my compre is hopefully fine, I pass nearly all the time :/

Im aiming for rjc thats why... I recently scored 6 points for my prelims l1r5 and 7 a1, so I think I might be able to make it if I pass my hcl!

actually it doesnt matter if I cant get into rjc, but the idea of dropping chinese in jc is pure heaven hahaha

Re: Help! to pass Higher Chinese O level!

For bao zhang and yi lun wen u don't have to use fanciful vocabs all the time.

But it would be good if you can use some insightful phrases.
BUT TAKE NOTE! The phrases will only help you add marks to your compo when its used correctly and pertain to what you write.

So don;t anyhow bomb xD Good Luck!

噢, 这个问题你本来就应该用华语问....

然后用华语回复他人的留言, 这样才能形成习惯。

采纳意见吗? =)

火烧眉毛了才来改个小习惯,不太实际吧?

Re: Help! to pass Higher Chinese O level!

Hahai think your situation same as me.. When i was sec 4 i got B3 for my normal CL too.. Desperate to pass HCL to get 2 bonus points.. Sucks at chinese or even speaking chinese.. In fact i can't speak a full proper sentence of Mandarinw btw hahahaha!! Oh well in the end i got C5 for HCL so if i can pass i believe you can too! All the best! I'm currently enjoying my 2 JC years without having the need to study Chinese! Woop woop!! Chinese lessons used to be my most HATED lesson it sucks so bad that it feels like hell..
