What is the JC General Paper (GP) and is it the same as English classes? In reality, the JC GP subject is vastly different from Secondary School English. It challenges students to think critically to better understand the world around them while broadening their global outlook. The H2 syllabus for General Paper centres around core topics like Environment, Singapore Studies, Media, Sports, and more.

Obtaining mastery over these topics can aid students in fostering a critical awareness of various political, economic, and social issues. These areas of study are examinable via composition writing and comprehension with Application Question (AQ). To help JC students excel in their General Paper exam, Zenith Education Studio offers GP tuition classes conducted by highly-experienced tutors at our centre in Singapore.


Is General Paper a difficult subject? Many students struggle with JC GP, and find it difficult to get good grades in their exams. This is because GP tests both critical thinking ability and ability to discuss issues of local as well as global importance. Moreover, students cannot skip this subject, as GP is a compulsory H1 level subject for almost all students in Singapore.

The General Paper syllabus includes an assessment split across 2 papers:

Paper 1 Essay (1h 30min) – Paper 1 comprises 12 questions on issues drawn from across disciplines and of local interest and global concern. Students are to answer only one question.
Paper 2 Comprehension (1h 30min) – Paper 2 comprises one or two text passages. There will be a range of questions on the text(s), requiring students to demonstrate their ability to comprehend, explain, infer, evaluate and summarise. The application question requires students to respond to a task derived from the text(s), based on their understanding and interpretation of the text(s) as a whole.

Our GP tuition classes in Singapore cover both content- and skill-based aspects needed to help students excel in both papers.
