Many of us have the wrong perception that Social Studies is less important than History or Geography. In fact, Social Studies carries the same weightage as the other humanities subjects. For O-level students, it is compulsory to take up other humanities subject such as Geography or History when taking O-levels examinations. Hence, it is essential to take all humanities subjects into consideration as this will affect the overall total score. As many of us disregard the importance of Social Studies, hence, it is crucial that students should pay equal attention to Social Studies.

Starting from the 2024 Secondary 1 cohort, there will be some changes to the Secondary syllabus. At the lower secondary level, the G1 Humanities subject will comprise Social Studies and Humanities Exposure Modules (Geography, History and Literature in English). At the upper secondary level, students taking G1 Humanities will take Social Studies, and choose one of three exposure modules (i.e. Geography, History and Literature in English).

This is part of the changes towards Full Subject-Based Banding (Full SBB) to provide students with greater flexibility to customise their secondary education. The changes under Full SBB will also allow students to have a more enriching secondary school experience by creating more chances for them to interact with peers from diverse backgrounds.

I struggled to find an experienced tutor to my daughter who is going to have her N-level examination this year. Googled and found Tutor City randomly and contacted Benson and seek his help to get some recommendation of Math tutor. He promptly responded and shared a list of tutors which matched the criteria I mentioned and we managed to short list 2 and interviewed them. The whole process was quite smooth and straight forward. I highly recommend Benson if you are looking a home tutor as the whole process is hassle free. Thanks Benson. :-)
