Retaking O LVL English

I'm kinda frustrated whenever i think abt retaking O lvl english. I have many friends who cant really speak/write correct english, sometimes they even need me to check for their grammatical errors, yet they could pass during their 1st attempt, this makes me even more frustrated. I know english is a must for my further studies. I'm in my 2nd year in poly, and i plan to take it next year. Any kind advice? Thanks.

If that's the case, just drill TYS/FYS

There's a certain tactic to answering the exam scripts. Once you've done enough past year papers, you'll identify the trend & know how to answer to get your marks. This applies especially for the comprehension component.

Hi lemongrass,

I've been helping students prepare for the O level Eng examination, and do have a few years of experience. I've also taught 2 students who re-took their O level English (both poly students just like you), and my advice is - English is not something that can be improved overnight.

Learning English is a long (and never-ending journey), even for me! And more importantly, it requires constant practice and awareness. Reading, writing, and speaking, these are what will help. Nevertheless, for the O Level English exam per se, there are indeed some tactics/skills that you should know.

This is particularly so for the Oral component (20%), the situational writing, and the comprehension + summary. Looking through years of TYS would definitely give you a good idea of what to expect. Nevertheless, practice is what it takes to improve, and just as importantly, you will also need a qualified teacher/tutor/mentor who can be there by your side to help you understand your strengths and weaknesses, correct some of your common grammatical/spelling errors, and give you personalized tips as to what you could do to score better =)

As for me, I have gone on from giving private tuition to teaching students in groups (average class size of 4). Here's our website, which might be of your interest - http://www.cometeducation.com/workshops.html

There are a few workshops which I will be conducting very soon, and you'll definitely find it engaging and useful for your exam preparations =)

Here's wishing you all the best, and feel free to contact me should you need any help with your English!

Best Regards,
Feng Yi
