Just keep writing compo and ask your teacher to grade. Im usually a B student for chinese, but a week before o level chinese i spam write compo. Get A1 in the end so no need retake. But my oral and listening was good though...

Re: Mother Tongue Retake

Practice. If you think youre going to write a compo, then practice to write different style and scenerios'. It would allow you to be more flexible. 报章报道, you just need to read and practice. The points is actually more or less the same. And for paper 2, strive for full marks. Its not difficult if you find the technic that suits you. 加油。

Re: Mother Tongue Retake

If possible, try not to do 报章报道. My teacher told my class, majority of singaporeans will do 报章报道. Grades will be affected if ur compo not strong. If you screw up one part of 报章报道, you will probably fail. As this type of compo requires strong logical thinking.

It depends on your Oral. Is it Merit or distinction? Next 5 days, just revise on chinese file and see where you went wrong on June/May paper

My teacher recomnended baozhabg baodao because you do not need a wide range of vocabulary to score. Just logical sense and good sentence structure.

Re: Mother Tongue Retake

Actually singapore chinese is quite easy if you are from a chinese speaking family. Plus you urself is interested in chinese, reading and writing will not be a difficult subject.
Well. if people were to refute me of saying that chinese exam here is easy. Try posting your paper online and ask any hongkong, taiwanese, and chinese to answer or comment, bet they will say that our paper is very basic (at least for my time).
You do not read or memorise poem, no 文言文...

Re: Mother Tongue Retake

Hi.

I find the practising each section individually is useful. Since Chinese is a language, you need to be able to listen, read, write and speak.

1: Situational Writing
Practice the different forms of situational writing (formal email and informal email). Be familiarised with the format.

2: Essay Writing
Practice at least two of narrative, expository and argumentative. Practice more of narrative, since narrative is easier to score. Similar to Situational Writing, be familiarised with the outline of the Essay.

3: Cloze Passage (First Section of Paper 2)
4: Comprehension (MCQ)
For these parts, one way to do well is to read extensively.

5: Comprehension (Free Response)
Practice papers from different schools. Make sure that you can answer the questions, as there are a relatively fixed range of questions that can be asked.

Most schools conduct intensive programmes for Mother Tongue before the Mid-year Paper. Hence, source of question papers should not be an issue.

In my opinion, it is better to be familiarised with the words and phrases that are taught from Secondary 1 to Secondary 4, as it may also be assessed. Some of these words and phrases can also be used in Situational Writing and Essay.

All the best for your future endeavour.

Know this is already a late reply but......
There is a reason why taiwan,hongkong are subsets of Mainland China.
And my friend who is from china also遍题 his letter like me,on 母语双周,as we wrote about intensive mugging practices so shit

Lol wait till u look at how long the 报章报道 question was for may/june 2015 paper

I saw it and i fainted.Did 记叙文 instead.

Our teachers said MOE had also made 报章报道 more complex and difficult,and those who wrote well got an average of only 23/40,since june 2014 onwards
