Should I Drop A-Math (Additional Mathematics)?


Some of the common questions I get around this period (before registration of GCE 'O' level exams) is that 'Should I Drop A-Math?', 'Can I still study H2 Math in JC if I didn't take A-Math at O level?'

This post is also suitable for Secondary two students who will be choosing their subject combination at the end of the year.

'Should I Drop A-Math?'

This question usually pops out after a long period of unsuccessful attempts to pass A-Math or when it was recommended by teachers to drop the subject.

I have a poem to share: To Drop Or To Perserve On, Read the “Don’t Quit” Poem (Click to read)

'Can I still study H2 Math in JC if I didn't take A-Math at O level?'

I have also answered this question previously in this post: What happens if I do not take A-Maths?

Just a note : I have recently communicated with Temasek Junior College (TJC) Math teacher. For students intending to study H1 Math (Art Stream), 'O' level A-Math is not a requirement.

Hi, I'm Ai Ling Ong. I enjoy coaching students who have challenges with understanding and scoring in 'O' Level A-Maths and E-Maths. I develop Math strategies, sometimes ridiculous ideas to help students in understanding abstract concepts the fast and memorable way. I write this blog to share with you the stuff I teach in my class, the common mistakes my students made, the 'way' to think, analyze... If you have found this blog post useful, please share it with your friends. I will really appreciate it! :)
