1

General Why choose us? What makes Pre-Uni special?

Answer

 

Pre Uni New College tries to guarantee several key factors which determine a student’s scholastic performance: understanding, application and confidence
Application skills should be enhanced through classes and tutorials, which are then built on by allowing students to tackle different types of problems and apply the theories and techniques they have been taught. Maths and Science courses focus on problem solving, as teachers show students different techniques and give helpful hints to help students systematically apply what they have learnt. Weekly Mathematic Quizzes and Term Tests ensure all the students get a chance to concentrate on problem solving and exam techniques. English and Essay Writing courses focus on comprehension, essay writing and critical thinking skills, as students are taught to apply their knowledge logically and systematically, while also allowing for creativity in writing tasks and stressing the need for good spelling and grammar.
When a student fully understands the work and is skilled in the application of their knowledge, confidence is a natural outcome. This then means that students will have no trouble understanding their high school work because they are equipped with the necessary skills.
