The aim of the SES English Exam Skills Programme is to provide students with direct support to equip them with the knowledge, skills, strategies and attitudes to cope with the demands of the English language syllabus in school.

Our Approach
The programme provides an extension to what students have been taught in the MOE-Aided DAS Literacy Programme (MAP) and helps to put the skills learned into practical use in their examinations. In class, students will be exposed to various language components and related strategies in order to cope with their language needs in their English examinations.

Components covered in a typical lesson

  1. Grammar
  2. Editing
  3. Synthesis & Transformation
  4. Comprehension
  5. Annotation Skills

The curriculum has been carefully designed and frequently evaluated by our team to ensure its suitability to our students. Lessons are in line with the MOE English Language Syllabus, and reference the Orton-Gillingham principles.

Recommended for
Students with difficulties in various English exam components such as Synthesis and Transformation and Comprehension.
