3 ‘A’s to ensure excellence for our students at Kimiya Learning Place
The essence of learning is not just about scoring well and achieving good grades. At Kimiya, it is about the journey of honing their skills to arrive at their final correct answers.
Education in Singapore now have been emphasising on ‘Application’. Long gone are the days where students are tested and graded based on their ability to memorise and regurgitate model answers. Examiners are now assessing on their ability to ‘Analyse’ the question and to ‘Apply’ their knowledge, which are in fact the essence of learning in the first place.
To achieve those ‘A’s, Kimiya advocates the innovative 3 ‘A’s method to help students master the subject – Acquire, Apply and Appreciate.
Acquire – In the most fundamental phase, students have to acquire the basic knowledge of each subject. Students are taught in the most precise and summarised way for each topic as well. The depth that Kimiya goes for each topic is usually more than required by the syllabus as found on the SEAB website.
With a small class size and engaging learning methods, learning is facilitated and effected. This supplementary knowledge allows students to better understand textbook concepts and prepares them for the various types of questions that they may encounter during their assessments in school.
Apply – In the execution phase, students need to apply and be tested on their acquired knowledge. Students will be taught how to analyse questions by spotting keywords and likewise how to answer them. Students will learn about specific keywords recommended by top and official institutions to allow them to do better than their peers during examinations.
The best preparation is always via practice, hence students will attempt a wide variety of actually-tested questions to familiarise themselves well. By possessing good application skills, students will be able to perform better than their peers.
Appreciate – In the feedback phase, Kimiya prides itself in inculcating a sense of responsibility in students’ own learning. After picking up the application techniques, our students will be better able to appreciate their learning and are able to post questions that require deeper knowledge and more understanding. Having which, they will do well not only in the national examinations but it also lays a strong foundation in their next level of studies.
The 3 ‘A’s approach by Kimiya has seen success in their students’ results. We welcome you to find out for yourselves the rewarding learning journey at Kimiya. Call us or email us now!
