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.
