Students in Singapore are required to take humanities once they enter secondary school. There’s no exception either once they advance into Junior College. It’s pretty much a requirement that they must take at least one humanities subject. However, most students are under the assumption that geography is significantly easier as compared to other humanity subjects. Sad enough to say, majority of those students end up being met up with disappointment. Geography, to say the least, is anything but easy. It’s a subject that focuses on earth as a land and its inhabitants. To some extent, some might even say that it’s the science of the world.
That’s right, it’s sort of another science subject, and anything science-related tends to be on the harder end of the spectrum.

Secondary School Geography Tuition
As we’ve already mentioned, geography is a subject that should never be underestimated in terms of its complexity and overall difficulty. It’s fundamental for students to comprehend the theories and the logic the lie beneath geography. Secondary school students are exposed to geography the moment they enter secondary school, which means that their nightmare begins on the very first day. The general consensus is that geography is relatively uninteresting and dry. It’s no help either that a significant portion of it requires memorisation. Without being familiar with the fundamentals of geography, it would practically be impossible to answer examination questions properly.
Ultimately, as long as a student is able to garner interest in a subject, his interest will almost always translate into better grades. But not all is lost. The thing about geography is that if its approached with the right perspective, it can actually be quite interesting.

Junior College Geography Tuition
Once a student enters the ‘A’ level phase, there’s no going back. Unlike secondary school, geography is considered to be one of the harder humanities subjects in Junior College. Even more complex concepts are introduced at this level, and these concepts become significantly harder than what students experienced back in secondary school. Being familiar with the subject as a whole becomes paramount at Junior College. Students are required to know their textbooks like the back of their hands. On top of that, they might even need to know beyond that. Since geography is tested through structured essay questions, the ability to write well and present intelligent arguments becomes even more vital. Students might even get penalised for making grammatical or punctuation errors.
The combination of all these factors makes ‘A’ level geography a real pain to score for, and JC students are going to need all the help that they can get. A tuition agency is able to assist Junior College students in bridging the gap between what they don’t know and what they should know, which is what’s going to make all the difference when it comes to their preliminary examinations and the major ‘A’ level examinations.

‘A’ level geography doesn’t revolve entirely around memorisation. With enough time and practice, anyone can recite a textbook from memory, but not everyone is able to clinch an A for geography. The application process is lot more complex than that, and without help, Junior College students might end up falling behind their class. In order to maintain an advantage over his peers, it’s important to engage a private tutor who’s able to breakdown geography into understandable points that can be digested and applied appropriately.
