  • The JC2 classes on Tuesday (5pm-7pm) and Wednesday (5pm-7pm) will commence on 12 January 2021 and 13 January 2021 respectively. Students who wish to switch to a weekday class can so do simply by informing Mr Edmund Quek through email. Like the classes on weekends, students who choose to attend a weekday class can do so online or onsite. The login details will be the same as those for weekend classes. It is important to note that Mr Edmund Quek teaches in a cycle which starts on Tuesday and ends on Sunday. Therefore, students who are unable to attend their regular classes and wish to come for a makeup lesson should do so in the same week. To put it somewhat differently, a student should not attend two lessons in the same week as the same content will be taught in all the classes in the same week.

  • There will be 4 lessons in December 2020. The first two lessons in the first and second weeks will be on macroeconomics which all students are required to attend. However, the last two lessons in the third and fourth weeks will be on microeconomics revision which ONLY students who joined after the JC1 Promotional Examination are required to attend. In other words, students who joined before the JC1 Promotional Examination are required to attend 2 lessons in December and students who joined after the JC1 Promotional Examination are required to attend 4 lessons. Nonetheless, students who joined before the JC1 Promotional Examination but wish to attend the last two lessons in the third and fourth weeks which will be on microeconomics revision are allowed to do so. This is especially true for students who joined at a time which was near the JC1 Promotional Examination and hence have a relatively weak foundation in microeconomics.

  • As we enter Phase 2 of the circuit breaker, we have been informed by the Ministry of Education that we are now allowed to conduct physical classroom lessons. Therefore, from 30 June (Tuesday), I will be teaching at the tuition centre. Nonetheless, at least for the month of July, I hope that you will continue to attend the online lessons for your safety. This is due to the fact that there are still community cases and there is likely to be an uptick as a resulting of the opening of Phase 2. That said, you may choose to attend the physical classroom lessons if you so wish. However, you will need to inform me if you wish to attend the physical classroom lessons so that I am able to make the arrangement which is in line with the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Education. Click Here for Class Schedule Things to do when you arrive at the centre: 1) Scan the SafeEntry QR code to check in. 2) Have your temperature taken before you enter the centre. 3) Use the hand sanitizer (optional but encouraged).
