JC Lab Practical
Preparing JC students for the A-Level Practical Exams
Are you ready for the A-Level Practical Paper Examination?
It’s worth a whopping 20% of your overall grade! If you want to excel in A-level Physics, Chemistry, or Biology and get a top-notch score, then nailing the practical component is a must. But who said learning can’t be fun? Practical skills are best acquired through hands-on experience, so let’s get those lab coats on and start experimenting!

Thank you for the continuous and consistent effort in teaching our class throughout my JC years. It is my honour to have been taught by you. Thank you for encouraging me and showing care and concern for me at all times not only in class but also outside of class. Thank you for being so detailed and patient in your explanations of concepts that I just could not grasp. I thank you again for your wonderful mentoring and wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
Before I met Aaron in my first year of jc, I was constantly only getting Es and Ds which made me really worried for my A levels and found myself dreading to study physics. However, after I attended lessons with him for a few months, my grades started to pick up and I gained more confidence to approach any questions in physics. What makes him stand out from other teachers is that he is able to breakdown the really important fundamental concepts that students often struggle with into bite-sized pieces and explain them in a way that makes it simple to understand. Under his guidance, I found physics a lot easier to tackle and scored an A for my A levels too!
I managed an A for Chemistry with Mr David Wong’s help and I can safely say that I would not have been able to achieve this without him. Having struggled with Chem throughout JC, Mr Wong’s lessons were a refreshing change of pace and his teaching style was really suited to my learning. More importantly, however, what shone through was his passion for teaching and the care he had for his students. He would frequently check up on our progress, making sure we would have all the materials given out when we missed lessons. He’d also provide us with many little extra benefits, such as managing the room temperature, providing tissues and even coffee or milo packets for us in the middle of lessons. Overall, my experience with learning lodge has been overwhelmingly positive and Mr Wong played a significant part in this. Thank you Learners' Lodge!
I’d like to thank Mr Au for helping me achieve an A grade for H2 Chem for A Level exams. Chemistry was always my worst subject, and I always scored U or S for chem in J1. By J2, I realised that the key to chem was the understanding of fundamental concepts beneath all the application questions, which I lacked. However, under Mr Au’s thorough and clarified teaching of concepts, I had my basics solidified in time for exams. I was able to do harder application questions because I knew the basics of how they worked without ambiguity. Yet, the best part was how he encouraged us to ask questions in class, which I found hard to do in school. This really helped clear some of the more challenging questions from VJC papers. I really owe Mr Au a lot for preparing me for this exam, thank you!
About Practical Assessment in A-Level
The Practical Assessment or Paper 4 is an evaluation of your practical skills and investigative abilities in four areas: Planning (P), Manipulation, Measurement and Observation (MMO), Presentation of Data and Observations (PDO), and Analysis, Conclusions, and Evaluation (ACE). Each section carries a different weightage in your final score, with Planning getting a 5% weightage, while MMO, PDO, and ACE get a 15% weightage each. The PDO and ACE sections may contain questions that don’t require equipment or apparatus, and you’ll have a set time to access any necessary tools or materials.
Since the Practical exam makes up 20% of your Higher 2 assessment, it’s crucial to develop practical skills and techniques to perform well. At Learners’ Lodge, we offer training on practical tips and healthy habits to help you perform your best.
So, let’s prepare well for the Practical Assessment and do our best!
Common Problems faced by JC students for A-Level Practical
Not getting enough hands-on experience
A-Level Practical Exams can be quite challenging, and it can be tough to fit in all the practical sessions necessary for students to excel in the subject. It’s natural to feel a little bit anxious about not getting enough hands-on experience, especially when it comes to preparing for exams. But don’t worry, we understand the importance of practical sessions and personalised guidance, and we’re dedicated to providing you with the training and support you need to feel confident and capable in your practical skills.
With our expert help, you can feel reassured that you’ll be fully prepared to tackle any experiment that comes your way, and excel in your A-Level Practical exams!
Not getting enough support and guidance
Getting the support you need to excel in the practical components of your A-Level Practical exams can be challenging! With limited time and attention in school, many students feel like they’re left to fend for themselves when it comes to hands-on practice. But not to worry, because here at Learners’ Lodge, we understand how vital personalised guidance and support are important for you to feel confident and capable in your practical skills. No more feeling unsure or hesitant about whether you’re using the right techniques and approaches! With our help, you’ll be acing those experiments in no time!
Not getting enough access to lab
Before national exams, schools limit students’ access to their labs, which prevents them from having practical sessions that are crucial for their continued learning progress. This situation is similar to what our graduates have encountered, and it’s possible that your child is also facing it now. At Learners’ Lodge, we recognise the significance of practical learning and have therefore invested in a modern Science Lab to offer our students exceptional facilities and assistance. Our students have access to their own equipment, ensuring that they receive the best practical learning experience in Singapore.
