Designed to Be Informative,
But Not Overwhelming

Many students underestimate the complexity of GP because they view it as an extension of the "English Language" learnt in Primary and Secondary level.

That being said, General Paper is a manageable subject, with the right guidance and knowledge of frameworks in place. 

In this headstart program, we break down the various types of GP questions to demonstrate and teach the step by step process to tackle them. Your child will pick up essential skills and techniques that will go a long way to help cope with class tutorials when school starts.
