Absolutely. Although GP is a H1 subject, it is often used by university admissions officers as an indicator of a student’s ability to cope with academic rigour and engage in interdisciplinary thinking—two of the most important requirements for success in higher education. Priority is thus always given to students who do well in GP.
In addition, a student’s GP grade is used in the computation of their Rank Points (RP). Students who score well in other subjects but poorly in GP risk being denied admission to the university of their choice because they have lower RP.
You may have heard of stories of students who either had to opt for a less competitive course or retake the A-Level examination as a private candidate.
A student’s GP grade does matter immensely.
Unfortunately, it is not easy to score an A. Only around 20% of students in Singapore do so every year. Students who are unable to perform consistently should not be surprised if they fail to score an A for the A-Level General Paper examination.
Here at GP Tuition, we strive to ensure that none of our students encounter such a situation.
In 2021, we achieved exceptional results with 97% of our students obtaining either an ‘A’ or a ‘B’ grade.
This was made possible through our structured and systematic approach to learning, the intellectual stimulation provided through interactive and engaging classes, and the close guidance and support we offer each student at the individual level.
