Email from one of the students:
Basically, i am a o level graduate of 2007 and scored pretty well in my other subjects just that my maths got a D7. Even though, i appealed and got a place in polytechnic and currently going to study my favourite course that i am keen in. I tried JAE, but i failed even though i apply for design courses however i appealed again using JPAE, and i sucessfully got a place.Now what i want to ask is, do u think i should retake my o level maths again? I have just register as a private candidate for 2008 o level maths elemetary maths the old syylbas. However from small to big, i do not really have interest in maths but i hate teo see a 7 in my o level grade. What do u advise? i am really confused now, because if i were to retake i have to study my poly as well as the maths.. So what should i do? I rreally hope u can help me out here.
Now my questions to you is
- "Why do you want to retake your O Level Maths?"
- "What purpose does retaking serve for you and what is it you hope to achieve for this 2nd attempt?"
You need to get your purpose clear and strong so that your goal will be clear as well. Whatever is your choice, there are different consequences to bear. Are you fully ready for these?
Only you will know the answers to the above 2 questions. And only you decide on whether you should retake your o level maths again.
fyi: The old syllabus 4017 is going to be totally out of syllabus soon.
