Education

Nanyang Primary School

My education started off in Nanyang Primary School. It was one of the most sought-after primary schools that parents would want to enrol their child in.


On most mornings, I would walk to school together with one of my friends. During recess, I would play soccer on the school field with my classmates and buy a bottle of Heaven & Earth green tea when break ends.


I was involved in 2 CCAs in primary school, chess and table tennis. Chess trainings were on Thursday and Friday, while table tennis trainings were on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I participated in many competitions for both my CCAs. The chess club was even featured on redsports!


I graduated NYPS with an aggregate score of 245 plus an addition 2 points for merit in higher chinese.

After graduating primary school, I entered Nan Hua High School and found myself picking up table tennis again.


My subject combination in Secondary 3 was triple science + elective Geography I was having troubles with many subjects, most notably A-Math and Higher Chinese.


I received a L1R5 of 36 points in prelims, failing many subjects. My O Level results were much better. With an improvement of 27 points for L1R5, I ended up with an L1R5 of 9 and a ELR2B2 of 8.
