If your Secondary 2 teen is struggling to score well in History and you’re worried about it affecting his chances of getting his desired subject combination at the upcoming Upper Sec Subject Option Exercise, you’ve come to the right place.

Many parents have come to us saying that they cannot help their teens with History, because the syllabus has changed so much.

As compared to the old days when pure regurgitation of facts was enough to score an A1 or A2, this is what happens now…

Your child:

  • Puts in hours to read the textbook and maybe memorises some (or all) of the content
  • Tries to pay attention in school History lessons
  • Does a few Source-based and Essay practices here and there
  • And yet struggles to get anything higher than C5 or C6 when it comes to the exams

Is it any wonder why students feel so lost, confused and disengaged about mastering History?

Why Many Students Struggle to Do Well in History Exams,
Even If They Like History and Memorise Well

Just memorising is no longer enough.

The History exam now demands students to hone their critical thinking skills: they need to understand, recall, infer, interpret, compare, analyse, explain, and critically evaluate sources of information while learning about historical Issues.

It’s quite a lot to ask of a 13 or 14 year old teen.

And while students may understand what they read, they struggle to apply learnings to different exam question types.

It’s like being given a whole box of beautiful and exotic imported food ingredients without any idea how to prep and combine them into a delicious meal.

It all boils down to exam techniques – when to use what information, why use that information in that way, and how to net the highest marks in minimal time.

And exam techniques can only be mastered by FOCUSED and TARGETED timed practices, coupled with SPECIFIC and MEANINGFUL feedback.

The above process needs to go back and forth on a regular enough basis until the learnings stick.

You see, while History teachers in schools try their best to cover the needed content and skills, the truth is that they get very limited time with each class, and History teachers teach anywhere from 7 to 10 classes (200 to 400 students) at any one point of time.

There is simply not enough time to give sufficient practice assignments and mark them all quickly, unlike Math.

We want to help.

This course aims to help your child improve by at least 2 grades using the best tools, guides, guidance through weekly live online lessons & 24/7 Q&A support by Ms Karen Ang, Principal & Founder of learnMOJO, an online education provider that has provided full online coaching to Humanities students since 2014.

About Your Coach

Teacher Karen has seen thousands of teens (and counting) through the school and national exams.

Every year, between 70% to 90+% of her O level students score A1 and A2 grades despite coming to her with fail or borderline pass grades, outperforming the national distinction average of 28% to 34%.

We believe that your teen can also experience such a transformation.

The thing is, due to her full schedule, Ms Karen Ang is no longer able to take in individual or small group students.

The only way to get access to her right now would be through the Sec 2 History 2023 End-of-Year Revision.

Conducted entirely online, this course distills all the important insights and wisdom from Teacher Karen’s 18-year teaching career guiding thousands of teens, aimed at helping your child to:

  • Sidestep easily avoidable and costly mistakes that the vast majority of students make
  • Nail those tricky Source-based and Structured questions in a step-by-step manner
  • Unlock the secrets to scoring top marks without having to write long-winded answers

All from the comfort and safety of home, without having to travel to a tuition centre.

Frequently-Asked Questions

Yes, they are. However, do note that question types and mark schemes are in the Express/G3 formats.

It’s best to consult the History syllabus in your child’s school. While the History exam skills covered in the course are commonly needed by IP/IB students, topics covered in your child’s school may be different.

Generally, if your child’s school adopts the mainstream History textbook (Singapore – A Journey Through Time 1299 – 1970s), our courses would likely be a good fit.

If the school relies on customised notes/readings, then it’s likely that our courses would be of limited help.
