Junior College
General Paper








  • General Paper (GP) is one of our trademark programmes at Indigo JC. 
  • Designed to be the final tier of our Advanced Learning pedagogy, the GP Excellence weekly programme focuses on training our students in effective essay writings skills. 
  • Students are taught to express their points critically, coherently and with a demonstration of good standard English.
  • At the base of these essay writing skills, students will learn how to dissect and interpret current affairs, gain a strong grasp on contextual knowledge and use that to frame an argument that is relevant to the examination question. 
  • This foundation is applicable to tackling summaries and application questions as it conditions students to identify key points and to synthesise them efficiently. 











Our
Approach

  • As a H1 subject, we understand that GP tends to be prioritised lower on a busy student’s to-do list. 
  • As such, we implement the same rigour throughout our JC1 and JC2 classes. 
  • This is designed for those who join us in JC1 to build up a strong foundation over time and for our JC2 students to pick up the pace if they start a little later.

Besides our weekly programme, we offer an intensive programme for JC2 students as they near the A-Level exams. JC2 Orange Intensive Programme begins at the start of term 3 and JC2 Red Intensive Programme begins in September.

Programme Structure:

  • Students will undergo a rigorous programme which helps to develop effective essay writings skills necessary for expressing understanding as well as critical and creative thinking through informed personal responses. 
  • This will enable them to formulate cogent arguments which show linkage and relevance to the question posed.  
  • Using our proven patterned essay dissection model, such as the TIACKO model 
  • Students will also be able to obtain the skills required to confidently tackle different essay questions.  
  • Develop critical thinking skills to comprehend, explain, infer, evaluate and summarise key concepts, and apply these in their summary writing and application questions.   
  • Expand students content knowledge and improve their understanding of current global affairs - necessary to contextualise questions and provide relevant examples in their essay.
