    • and for interest when I am already a matured adult who has a stable job with a Poly diploma ? To think I had graduated from school more than 20 years ago ? The reason why I am thinking of studying A-Levels subject is that I want to extend my academic knowledge. Should I just save money and study something more ‘adult’ ?

    • ‘Skillsfuture’ like no use to me one leh. Their courses are not of my interest. No point taking them for the sake of taking them.

    • If you want to expand your academic knowledge, I think you are better off learning yourself via online resources, pirated textbooks, youtube, quora etc. Focusing on A lvls only give yourself a pretty limited scope of knowledge.

    • Personally I agree with qdtimes2, that it is better off not to focus only on A level content. The content is pretty outdated, and quite limited and basic. Content knowledge is also not the main skill for A level students. 

      Also, it depends on which subject matter.

       

      If your interest is in Physics, I could recommend you more things to read up on :)

      Personally, even though I specialise in teaching O/A Level physics, and both Junior and JC Level Singapore Physics Olympiads, there are still many things about Physics I have yet to read up and understand.
