General Paper

General Paper (GP) is a compulsory H1 subject for all JC students. GP aims to develop in students the ability to think critically, construct cogent arguments, and communicate their ideas using clear, accurate and effective language. While a good command of English Language is needed to read, understand, respond and write convincingly, GP is more than an English Language paper. Through this subject, students will explore a range of key issues of global and local significance, and analyse current affairs and societal trends. Students then formulate informed opinions on the significance and implications of these issues for the individual and society.
 
GP at TMJC will focus on empowering students with critical thinking skills to help them in their reading and analysis of questions and issues. Teaching skills in effective writing is a cornerstone of our programme as GP is a skills-based paper. Students are also given opportunities to acquire knowledge beyond the classroom setting and from the direct experiences  of guest speakers and through learning journeys.
 
We hope GP will help our students find their personal voices to make sense of an increasingly complex world.
