A-Level Tuition Singapore - H1 General Paper (GP) Syllabus

For the A-Level General Paper (Syllabus Code: 8806), there are 2 papers: Paper 1 is “Essay”, and Paper 2 is “Comprehension”, which is worth 50 marks each.

From the GP Syllabus, it is apparent that the topics covered in Paper 1 will be mainly issues drawn from across disciplines and issues of local interest and national concern, while the questions covered in Paper 2 will be mainly the student's understanding of the passage, including literal comprehension and inference, their vocabulary, ability to summarise and apply to the passage.

At Adam Smith Learning Centre, we have structured our 2-hour lessons such that the GP tuition lessons guide the students on the global outlook, both in local & regional developments, with the mindset to distinguish between the different types of relationships and impacts of the various issues.

Students will then be able to utilize their current knowledge to demonstrate their understanding of the interrelationship of ideas from across disciplines. More importantly, students will be taught how to develop the skills of accurate and effective communication for a fluent presentation of their opinions, in their own voice.
