hi im new in forums, so i hav no idea where should i direct my questions to.
i am a malaysian who studied in singapore for the past 2 years, i sat for the 2010
singapore-cambridge a-lvl. the results have not been released yet but i hav a very strong
feeling tat i will not do well. therefore, i hav decided to retake the cambridge
international exam in malaysia ( now that im back here). I hav no idea how the private
candidate CIE will be conducted. back in s'pore, we have to sit for practical lab test for
different science subjects in year 1 and it is only during year 2 that we sit for all the
written papers. i wonder if, as a private candidate, i would be able to resit for the
following subjects : chemistry, biology, math and General Paper all in one sitting during
the June 2011 CIE which is now open for registration.
Also on the application form
where we are asked to choose for subject registration, under the chem and bio sections
there is this "carried forward June AS mark" option. this really confused me as in s'pore, i
only had the choice of either H1 or H2(deeper in depth and scope).
my main and most desperate concern now is to know whether i can COMPLETE THE
CIE ALL DURING THE JUNE 2011 PERIOD ONLY, as i really wish to do well this time
and enter a decent Uni (IMU hopefully). my family is not well off, so i really hope to
finish my studies ASAP and work. and if this is the case, which subject/syllabus code
should i register for my Chem, Bio, Math and GP(gp is quite clear cut case). the math
alone has as many as 7 papers.. which papers combination should i take?
I went to british council in KL the other day but the person at the counter is of not much
help. i can't afford to enroll myself into a local College anymore, so i hav to sit as a
private candidate. this mean having to deal with registration on my own.
I really hope that any of you who have the experience or knowledge in this field to
lend me a helping hand. your kindness is greatly appreciated
thanks a million
p/s i obtained all the app form from the british council website :
