YCIS Top Student Michelle Lo Shared Tips for Success in Preparing for IGCSE
Michelle Lo, one of the students scoring 10A*s in the recent IGCSE exam, says “I was really happy when I realized that I’ve got the results that I wanted.” Sharing how she prepares for the IGCSE exams, she states, “The biggest thing I’ve learnt from IGCSE is not to procrastinate, and have time management because there are a lot of deadlines and exams in IGCSE. I really learn how to balance my time and take care of all the assignments on time without stressing out.” In fact, Chinese language has always been a challenge to her as only English is spoken at home. Chinese appears as a second language for her. However, as the Chinese subject is taught in Putonghua at the School, students can study within a bilingual learning environment. This helps to prepare her well for the exam. Considering that, it is conceivable how difficult the Chinese exam (First language) may seem to Michelle.
