Principles of Accounts
Principle of Accounts (POA) is a selective subject offered in O level exams for Secondary 3 and 4 Express and Normal Academic (NA) students. Students who have selected this particular subject will be exposed to the principles of accounting from Secondary 3.
Unlike many subjects in secondary school, POA is certainly one of the most favoured subjects as it applies very logical and interesting concepts and formulas. However, it requires extensive amount of time and knowledge to get the fundamentals right. In every businesses and company, there will always be a need to have accounting done, and having a strong foundation in POA will certainly benefit a student whether if he chooses to pursue a career or further education in accounting.
Over the years, Singapore has become a trading hub, and it is one of the most popular hotspot for local and international businesses to set up their business operation in Singapore. With that, the increase in the demand for accountants and finance experts is inevitable. That drives more and more students to study it, and POA tuition in Singapore has become very popular. Although it is a very practical and logical subject, it is not easy to score an ‘A1’ for POA examinations. Students have to score at least 90/100 in order to secure an ‘A1’ grade in O levels POA examinations. Because of the high bell curve, and wanting their child to gain an advantage over their peers, many parents choose POA home tuition, and believe it or not, POA is becoming even more popular than Maths and English tuition in Singapore.
Our tuition agency has been known as the leading and reliable POA tuition agency in Singapore, and we strive to provide experienced POA tutors specialised in providing effective POA tuition for secondary, O/A level, IP and even IB.
