Why A-Level General Paper (GP) Matters

If you’re a Junior College student, you might be wondering why A-Level General Paper (GP) is so important. After all, it’s just one of your H1 subjects, right? Well, not quite. GP holds a unique place in your academic journey, and understanding its significance is crucial.

Why GP Matters for Your Future

While GP is indeed categorised as an H1 subject, its importance extends far beyond its syllabus. Here’s why you should pay close attention to your GP studies:

  • University Admissions: GP is often used by university admissions officers as an indicator of your ability to cope with academic rigour and engage in interdisciplinary thinking. These are two of the most critical requirements for success in higher education. Students who perform well in GP are given priority when it comes to university admissions.
  • Rank Points (RP): Your GP grade plays a significant role in the computation of your Rank Points (RP). Even if you excel in other subjects, a poor GP grade can lower your RP. This can potentially affect your chances of gaining admission to the university of your choice. In some cases, students have had to opt for less competitive courses or retake the full A-Level examination (alongside other subjects) as private candidates.
  • Course Requirements: For certain courses like law, obtaining a B grade in GP is a requirement. Even for more competitive courses, such as medicine, while the relevancy of a high GP grade is not direct, it can still be useful in terms of increasing your RP, which can open up more opportunities for your preferred courses.
  • Securing Scholarships: If you’re aspiring to win a prestigious scholarship, your GP grade is significant. Scholarships consider various aspects of your profile, including volunteering, work experience, competitions, and co-curricular activities. However, your academic merits, reflected in your RP, often serve as the first cut.

The Harsh Reality of A-Level GP

Scoring an A in A-Level GP is a challenging feat. Each year, only about 20% of students in Singapore achieve this distinction. It’s essential to understand that consistent, high performance in GP is no easy task. Adding to this problem is that many students often take action too late… when time is no longer on their side.
