I heard from this forum that GP by itself is already a tough subject.
It's a relief to know that most make it to uni. As for contrasting subjects, do you think a scholar without basics in a particular subject at SPM level will be able to handle that subject at A level? Would it be a good idea to enrol her for a short course in that subject prior to going to Singapore in Jan? Thanks again. Regards
Yeah KI is a hard subject. For my school, even if you are taking KI, the school will still need you to take another contrasting subject at H1 level. So, you will be taking KI, 3content subject + 1 H1 contrasting subject. Soi, I would say it depends on the school policy. In my school, there was one malaysian who took it and she dropped it at the end of the first year. However, there are a few indonesians, one prcs, one indian took KI too. Ultimately, KI requires more of thinking skills on top of proficiency in english.
Well, for me, I am able to handle Economics even if i dun have any prior knowledge about it. So i would say it depends on individuals. Ultimately, students tend to start off weakly for art subject, i.e. econs, geog, history, lit because they could nt master the answering technique. So, if you let her enrol in short course, she will be exposed to the content but i am not sure about the answering technique part.
