The GP (General Paper) Syllabus aims to develop student’s left brain thinking through logical analysis of real life situations, argument of ideas rationally and convincingly with good and effective English.  It seeks to probe students’ exploration of real life issues locally and globally to prepare them for the adult world. Students are assessed based on the following criteria:

Through the above, the GP seeks to:

  • Enlighten students about the reality of the world they live in and develop an awareness of issues of change and continuity.
  • Widen students’ horizons and to appreciate the delicacy of relationships between countries and us.
  • Help students to develop more mature thinking through critical reading and thinking.

  • Develop the ability to evaluate ideas and arguments from different perspectives.

Testimonials & Featured Students

Ms Ho is one of the kindest and most genuine teachers I’ve met in my life. I’m very happy and blessed to have been her student for the past 5-6 years. I appreciate all the knowledge that Ms Ho have shared with me, especially easy to remember tools/frameworks using mnemonic and evaluation tips which are integral to writing a good GP essay. Ms Ho is incredibly patient and gives her best to help and guide each and every student. More than anything else, I am thankful for all the encouragement and life lessons Ms Ho has taught me. JC and GP were especially tough for me but I’m thankful to Ms Ho for spurring me on and for always believing in me. I’ve just completed my A-levels and looking back, I’m immensely grateful for the journey, time and memories at Byron . To any student in sec school or JC, I hope you’ll persevere and continue to have faith in yourself. The journey in JC may be filled with challenges but we’ll also find many things to be grateful for and learn to grow. Wishing all of you the best!!

Bernice Tan @ Raffles Institution

I had joined Ms Ho at Byron Tutorial Centre in late July of 2020. At that time, I had never once scored more than a pass for GP and the A levels were less than 3 months away. However, even in the dire situation that I was in, Ms Ho still believed in me and my abilities to excel in GP.

Through the short span of 3 months, she patiently taught me so many helpful examination skills from time management to answering techniques. Additionally, I was touched by how much she genuinely cared for her students’ welfare and always helped us see the positive side of things. Even after I had achieved a less-than-ideal prelim grade of C for GP, Ms Ho encouraged me to focus on how much I had improved since the previous exam, rather than on how much work I still had to put in.

In the weeks leading up to the A levels, she continued to encourage all of us through little Whatsapp messages or hand-written cards of encouragement which really kept me going. I will always be thankful for the patience and dedication she had to vet through numerous essay drafts I had sent her during this period. It was definitely thanks to Ms Ho’s help that I had managed to achieve a distinction for GP, something I would not have imagined to be possible in July of 2020.

Eunyce Loh @ Nanyang Junior College

My 4 years experience at Byron have been fulfilling and enjoyable. Learning GP at Bryon not only equipped me with essential thinking skills, it has also been an exciting experience all thanks to Ms Ho’s enthusiasm in teaching. There are plenty of opportunities to participate in discussions in every lesson therefore every student can learn from their own mistakes as well as others. Without Bryon, I wouldn’t have received satisfactory result for my A levels.
