G3 Humanities Elective (Social Studies, Literature in English (Syllabus 2262) SEC Exam and O’Levels Literature

Most secondary students know the importance of getting good grades especially when they are in Secondary Two as their grades will determine their choices or eligibility for subjects that they can take at Upper Secondary. Like its predecessor O’Levels, the new SEC Exam system (jointly provided by Singapore MOE and Cambridge) will also require students to have a humanities subject. When G3 students reach Sec 3, they will have to choose an humanities subject that they will pair with Social Studies which is a compulsory module. 

One of the available humanities elective for students taking G3 Humanities Elective is Social Studies and Literature in English. Although this is a popular combination particularly in the all boy school like Anglo Chinese Secondary or girls school like Crescent Girls, CHIJ schools, yet many students struggle with this subject and find it challenging to score.
