28 Jul All about JC2 Chemistry tuition
In Singapore, Junior Colleges are pre-university institutions that offer a two-year course. Students are accepted by junior colleges based on the aggregate of their L1R5 grading from their Cambridge GCE Ordinary Level examination. By the term of “L1R5”, the aggregate scores from the students’ subject grades are referred. This includes the first language and five other content subjects in the exam. The students of the first-year junior college who are now getting familiar with A-Level Chemistry need to be aware of two levels which are Higher (H1) and Higher 2 (H2). In this blog the chemistry tuition leader, Miracle Learning Centre explains what does H1, H2, and H3 actually mean for the JC students.
An important and central part of science in Chemistry and it bridges Physics, Geology, and Biology. It is a prerequisite to some of the most sought-after university courses like Medicine, Environmental Engineering and Dentistry. JC students are required to study a wide range of chapters for A-Level Chemistry. During the pre-exam revision phase, Miracle Learning Centre helps all the students in practicing on exam-based questions. Our JC2 Chemistry online program at Miracle Learning Centre is targeted towards assisting junior college students in excelling in the A-Level Chemistry examination. By a structured program that is developed by our team of experienced JC Chemistry tutors, including ex-MOE teachers for helping students in understanding the essential areas of the JC Chemistry.

How will the students be tested?
The A-Level Chemistry syllabus of H2 has shifted the focus from factual material for understanding and application of scientific concepts and principles. Some questions may be there based on information that is unfamiliar to the student. This Miracle Learning Centre aims at demonstrating how to use principles and concepts which are within the syllabus so students can apply them logically during the exam. Students must be familiar with the format of the exam so that they know what to expect and what are the key areas on which they must focus during revision. The main point of difference among H1 and H2 chemistry lies with the scope of topics covered and the scheme of assessment.
A look at the H2 Chemistry (9729) exam format includes the following :
Multiple-choice questions consist of 30 questions where students are expected to complete in 50 minutes.
The maximum marks that can be obtained are 30 marks and the weightage is 15% of the overall score.
Structures and free-response questions where students are expected to complete in 2 hours.
The maximum marks that can be obtained are 75 marks and this constitutes 30% of the overall score.
Consists of free response questions divided into two sections: section A and section B.
Section A is made up of 3-4 free-response questions which total up to 60 marks.
All questions in this section are compulsory.

The maximum marks obtainable in section A is 20 marks. The weightage of paper 3 is 35% of the overall score.
This is known as a practical assessment, which assesses the skills of students in terms of planning, measurement, and observation.
Students are given 2 hours 30 minutes to complete the assessment, which occupies 20% of the overall grade.
