Why Confidence?

Why should we focus on Confidence? Confidence is the belief in one's ability to succeed. Improving the ability comes with being prepared.

At LK Academy, we believe that confidence is needed in both the spoken as well as written components of the exam and it is prevalent in our everyday lives.

At LK Academy, we understand what our students in P3 face when a new subject is added. Students become more aware of their environment in relation to Science. They learn how to systematically group objects. We will teach them how to overcome the struggles faced when applying concepts.

At P3, students may overlook the importance of using the correct scientific terms when answering open-ended questions. Our programme will teach them to tackle open-ended questions, supported with correct scientific terms to score. Hence, mindfulness, stress tolerance and time management will be instilled through mock exam settings.
