    • Loading level of Svc 54 (SD) from New Bridge Rd Ter  @ 4:13pm (15/11/17 Wednesday) Off Peak, Bus in front = 14min, Bus behind = 15min

       

      Eu Tong Sen St -- 1 (0/1), 2(0/1), 8(0/6),

                                   13(0/5) --> Clarke Quay Stn

      River Valley Rd -- 12(-3/2), 19(-1/8), 23(-2/6), 21(-6/4), 19(-2/0)

      Hoot Kiam Rd -- No pax activity

      Paterson Hill -- No pax activity

      Scott's Rd -- 17(-6/4), 15(-2/0),

                         17(-3/5) --> Newton MRT

      Newton Rd -- 15(-2/0), 12(-3/0)

      Thomson Rd -- 18(missed this), 19(0/1), 21(0/2), 20(-2/1), 22(0/2), 23(0/1)

      Marymount Rd -- 23(-1/1),

                                   22(-4/3) --> Marymount MRT

                                  22(-1/1), 20(-3/1), 20(-3/3)

      Bishan St 22 -- 20(-5/5), 27(-6/13), 29(-1/3)

      Bishan Rd -- 8(-23/2) --> Bishan MRT

      Bishan St 11 -- 10(-2/4), 8(-2/0)

      Bishan St 13 -- 14(-6/12), 20(-1/7)

      Bishan Int -- 0(-20/0)

      *Highest loading occured at Bishan St 22 twds Bishan MRT, followed by highest passenger alighting activity at Bishan MRT

      *Demand is well spread thorughout the route in this off peak hour, mainly shuttling commuters from River Valley to Orchard, Thomson-Marymount to Bishan North Shopping Mall and serve as a feeder for Bishan residents to Bishan MRT.

      *I'm surprised at the loading at Bishan St 13 to Bishan Central, I thought residents along that area would walk to MRT due to its short distance, maybe I'm not too familiar with the area.

      How about the other direction? What's the loading like? Does anyone knows?

    • A shoal/school of sardines fish can be 6 kilometers long 3 kilometers wide and 100 feet deep. This fish school will have upto 2,000,000,000 sardine fishes.

      A blue whale will eat 3000 to 30,000 sardines in one gulp/mouthful. A huge Sardines school gets attacked by upto 30,000 dolphins, hundreds of seals, thousands of sea birds, hundreds of sharks, many species of whales, whale sharks which is known as feeding frenzy at sea. Many Sardines shoals disappear after a single feeding frenzy.

      Jurong East Central -- 31 (0/2)

      Boon Lay Way -- 33 (0/2), 34 (-3/4)

      Jurong Townhall Road -- 36 (-2/4)

      Corporation Rd -- 74 (0/34) ... interesting to see such high loading at one stop before Lakeside MRT.

      Lakeside MRT -- 59 (-41/26)

      JW St 51 -- 74 (0/15), 75 (-2/3)

      Jurong West Ave 1 -- 60 (-18/3)... I alighted here.

      ** Good demand between Lakeside and JW St 42... interesting that many people choose to board at st 51 though considerable number also board at Lakeside MRT

      ** Loading is decent between Jurong East and Taman Jurong

      ** DDs seem to be doing a decent job on this service! 

      Svc 49 is like a feeder route. Taman Jurong residents benefits a lot from this svc whether to commute to Lakeside MRT / JW Ave 1 / Jurong East Central. I think svc 98 comes after ur bus at Corporation Rd which explains the heavy loading to Lakeside MRT. I'm interested to see the loading back to JE though.

    • Happened to observe 60 yesterday during peak hours...interestingly the load is spread out among all areas. Some start from Bedok, some from Eunos and others from Bedok North. Load seems lighter at times but demandwise remains the same

      Reverted some back to AMDEP as certain buses didn't get transferred over in the first place and there were no spottings of those few buses deployed to KJ services being posted online.. Unless I missed them out..

    • Why Do Ten Years Series?

      Know this:

      Doing the Shinglee Ten Years Series (a.k.a. TYS) or MCQ questions is a must.

      Just like you wouldn’t go on stage without rehearsing, you shouldn't sit for your O Level or A Level without doing touching TYS.

      Fondly known to many students as TYS, the Ten Years Series is the best resource you can make full use of.

      "A" students understand this:

      Questions and style can be repeated over the years.

      The wise Sun Zi said it best in his classic Art of War (seriously!) - know yourself, know your enemies.

      Don't be misled by the difference in standards between your school examinations or prelims against the actul A/O Level.

      When Do Ten Years Series?

      When:

      You should be doing your TYS whenever you complete revising for a topic.

      You do not have to wait until you are taking the O Level and A Level.

      And you shouldn't be doing it once only.

      By doing the TYS early, you already know what are the common questions being asked, and what you should look out for when you are revising.

      Remember the Comprehension test technique where your English teachers would advise you to read up on the questions before reading the passage?

      Same analog?

      Exactly.

      And remember to get the Ten Years Series answers as well.

      Difference in Standards between TYS and Prelims

      Look:

      School tests and examinations are never the same as the actual TYS.

      Teachers may try to set the same standard, but they will never be fully replicate the experience.

      Generally speaking, I don't believe in doing plenty of "hard" or "tough" questions if the difficulty of the actual examinations is simpler than that.

      Want to know the best part?

      Tons of questions are actually out of syllabus.

      Want examples?

      Join my class and I'll show you plenty.

      So if you fare badly occasionally, don't be too disheartened by the setback.

      The keyword here is occasionally ;)

      Topical or Yearly?

      My personal preference:

      For my students, I normally encourage them to purchase the topical TYS over the yearly ones.

      By drilling the topical TYS topic-by-topic, you can be exposed to all the questions that ever appeared for the O Level or A Level examinations for that particular topic.

      In this way, you will immediately know your familiarity and weaknesses with that topic.

      Then, you should revise your notes and textbooks on the parts where you find it challenging.

      If you were to do your ten-years-series year by year, you tend to forget which topics you are weak in.

      1-2-3 Star Method

      To re-emphasis:

      You are not supposed to do the TYS once and dump the book.

      Do it earlier, maybe 2 months before your ‘O’ Level so that you have time to go through the questions again.

      The first time you do your TYS, attempt ALL questions. Only then you have a feel how the ‘O’ Level standard feels like.

      Ten Years Series
      As you do the questions, put a star beside the questions you got it wrong, or you got it correct but it is a tough question.

      The reason you are doing every single question is to filter out the really hard questions.

      I call this:

      The "1-2-3 Star Method" (1 star, 2 stars or 3 stars ... you get the point).

      You have no time to redo the entire book before the O or A Level.

      The questions that you have starred tell you exactly what questions to focus on, without the need to redo everything.

      Remember, these are the questions you have gotten wrong previously.

      If you have time, do the TYS at least twice before the exams.

      For questions that you have gotten correct and is confident of the concepts, you can remove the stars.

      On the 2nd attempt (just redoing the starred questions), put another star beside the questions you got wrong for the 2nd time.

      Now, you have a list of questions, some with 2 stars, others with 1 star.

      During your revision where time is not on your side, do those with 2 stars (hardest) first, before the 1 star.

      There you go, a smart and efficient way of using your Ten Years Series and ensuring all questions are fully covered; the tougher questions more so.

      Extending this concept further, perform the 1-2-3 Star Method for your school homework, tutorials and assignments.

      Remember, school examinations and prelims questions are likely to be based on what has been taught before.
