How common is it to get A*s? Like generally how many A level subjects to kids take and out of those how many do they get A star in? Wondering because I’m part of the first batch of A level kids from my school and I don’t have anything to gauge against.
I took 4 a levels and got A star in two of them. One result is coming in a few days, expected to be A or A star
Hi, apologise for the long post in advance, but please read finish. I’m a Singaporean J1 student from a prestigious school. I have always been very reliant on tuition up till JC but suddenly decided to try studying without tuition. This proved to be a very bad decision because not only did I not develop much discipline and goal planning skills from young, but JC was moving at a much faster pace. Before I realised it, I started falling behind in my work and eventually became extremely demotivated to continue trying. The teachers have not been going easy on me either because they assume that I am not handing up my work on purpose. I am at a lost right now and have been skipping school because I see no point in sitting in a class where I have absolutely no idea what is going on and being pressed to submit work which I am unable to complete. My parents have also not been very patient with me and think that I am doing this as an act of rebellion. I am planning to resume tuition to help me catch up again but this is harder than before as the workload from school is much heavier since we are practically expected to self-study everything and school hours are longer as well. As such, I am considering dropping out of school and relying on tuition and self-study to take a levels as a private candidate. I know it sounds ironic that I want to self-study even though I don’t have much faith in my self discipline, but I really believe it’s better that the current situation where I’m at such a loss I don’t know where to start. My “helpful” parents have also started the process of withdrawing me from school without my consent because apparently “I’m not interested in going to school”. Hence, I’m calling for anyone who might have experience in this area for advice. What are the alternatives I can consider aside from JC if I still want to take a levels? It is still realistic for me to aim to do well in a levels if I drop out and self-study with tuition? Thanks in advance.
