JC General Paper Tuition

Why study A level General Paper in JC? 

The General Paper curriculum @ Learners’ Lodge aims to prepare JC students for the workplace and society of the future by equipping them with argumentation, commmunication, critical thinking and writing skills.

The study of societal developments across a broad range of topics, including politics, globalization, technology and the arts inculcates within our JC students  a fuller appreciation of the many challenges and opportunities present in the 21st century. An understanding of the global, regional and local issues nurtures students grounded in the realities of the world we live in and connected to the aspirations of humanity.

Inspired by the societal trends and possibilities influencing our world today, our students will be taught to utilize the skills gained in General Paper to position their unique and informed responses, accurately identifying humanity’s collective challenges and charting the way forward to a world of connected, empowered and transformed communities.

  • maturity of thought

  • creative thinking skills
  • clear, accurate and effective communication skills
  • ability to evaluate arguments and opinions
  • ability to do extensive and independent research and reading
