O-Level Literature Subject
Literature is first introduced to any local student at the young age of 13. While literature is a compulsory subject for lower secondary students, the subject will not be much of a challenge as long as the students have a good command of the English language.
At the end of secondary 2, students will be selecting their subject combinations which will be taken as their O-level subjects. Literature is in one of the subject combinations for humanities, alongside social studies, geography and history. However, out of these 4 humanities subjects, literature is the least popular among students. In fact, there has been a decline of about 61.5% of students taking literature for their O-level. This is because not many Singaporean O-level students have interest in literature and have the confidence to excel in it.
O-level literature is a highly technical and deeply analytical subject, and students have to identify in detail of the techniques the author has utilise, recognise patterns and themes, cross-referencing throughout the text and building a comprehensive case. The reason why it is one of the most challenging subject is because there is no multiple choice or any ten-year series at all. It depends solely on you, your brain and a bunch of words. In the unseen practical criticism paper, students will be confronted with all the unknowns and unfamiliar texts and they have use their logic and analytic skills within a given time limit. No other O-level subjects stresses the student’s ability for independent critical analysis as much as literature.
It has also been said that the distinction/ pass rate for O-level literature is higher than other humanities. Well, it is pretty obvious due to the small number of candidates taking Literature compared to geography and history. We have seen that most of the top students, who have scored really well for their O level literature, are more passionate about their subject, and it takes a lot of time and effort to build up the essential skills to do well in the subject.
Due to the time constraint in school, literature teachers are not able to fully explain everything. With so many students in a class, the literature teacher will less likely be able to spot the weak areas of your child. And if your child is poor in his or her command of English language, they might be facing difficulty in scoring As for their literature.
BrightTutor provide literature tuition specialist who will help your child to deconstruct complex sentences, learn strategic ways to answer exam questions and uncover hidden poetic meanings in literary texts. With these skills and thorough practices, your child will be start progressing towards the distinction he or she is looking for.
A-Level H1/H2 Literature Tuition
A-level literature is one of the most difficult subjects to score, and O-level literature cannot even be compared to its difficulty level. In fact, it has been said by many literature students that A-level literature is 10 times as difficult as O level literature. In JC, many should have known that getting more As for your subjects will eventually get you into local university. If you fail to achieve that, you will more likely end up nowhere, compared to our local polytechnic counterparts who are being taught industry skills that will make them employable.
Therefore, any subject that makes it difficult to score an A in A-level should be seriously considered. With that, you should already picture that A-level literature will not be easy for you. As A level literature students have to analyse the books, it is totally different when it comes to analysing compared to reading a book. Everyone can enjoy a good movie, but very few people can film a blockbuster. Look through the literature syllabus started on SEAB, you would know that H1/H2 literature is extremely demanding.
Knowing that A level literature requires additional help for the student, many parents will engage literature tuition. However, compared to other subjects, there are not many literature tutors out there and it is very difficult to find the suitable literature tutor for your child. It is because different JC uses different text and a suitable literature tutor should be able to help literature students revise and read through to fully understand the particular book or literacy work.
To do well in A level literature requires a number of skills such as interpretation, knowledge of political and cultural context and history of the time to construct insights and ideas. An effective literature tuition will help your child learn these skills and apply the right literacy theories in their paper to score well.
BrightTutor provide efficient and result-oriented literature tutors who will help your child to acquire these skills to score A for their A level literature.
