One trend observed in the Preliminary papers for Sciences in schools is that setters (teachers) rarely assess students on the fundamental concepts — Preliminary papers are usually set at a higher standard, and this explains the difficulty of the examination. For lower-ability students, you may like to first practice on the IGCSE Past-year Examination Papers, as it is easier, as compared to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level Examination, not to mention school Preliminary Examinations.
Students are advised to practice questions in the following orders:
- IGCSE Past-Year Papers
- International GCE ‘O’ Level Past-Year Papers
- Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level Past-Year Papers
- Past-Year Preliminary Papers
We will also be uploading questions for students to practice their fundamental concepts, and also application questions.
