(sign up with a friend to enjoy 10% off!)

What content will be covered?

We will go through key concepts from each chapter and highlight important keywords/answering techniques.

We will also run through commonly tested questions & difficult questions that students tend to get stuck on.

The goal is to help students get an intensive revision and to provide them with useful exam tips & strategies before their big national exam!

Where is the location?

The crash course will be conducted at Tzu Chi Humanistic Youth Center (Power Station classroom).

It is a short 5 mins walk from Northpoint CityYishun MRT.

The classroom is able to accommodate up to 40 pax.

The classroom is fully air-conditioned & equipped with a projector and mic.

Can students join online / what if student is unable to join for a module?

All crash courses are conducted in hybrid format, with students attending physically while the rest tune in via Zoom. 

For students who prefer to join online, they will be provided with the zoom link and be mailed the notes ahead of time. The lesson content is the same.

For students who miss any module due to school activities or travel plans, they can request for the recording of the session and review it on their own time. 


Hear it from the students themselves!


"Really like how tutor Darrell covered every topics tested for O’s and specified the key points of each chapter and also going through common olvl tys qns!

The acronyms provided that really stuck with me all as well as all the anedotes you shared (Pokemon example, thermistor/LED/resistance)!"

- Toria, St Anthony Canossian Secondary School


"Throughout the crash course, concepts and skills are taught in a fun yet effective way.

It was really much more effective as compared to a school setting!"

- Chuan Kang, Ang Mo Kio Secondary School

"The crash course really helped me to have a deeper and clearer understanding of physics as a whole.

Not to mention, the lesson was taught in such an enjoyable manner as well! Highly recommended!"

- Dylan, Catholic High School


"The course helped me to understand the importance of understanding the concepts and not just memorising them.

It makes the learning process so much easier and more effective!"

- Hazel, Edgefield Secondary School
