More top students opting for tuition to maintain form
Jasmine Thoi, 14, has tuition outside school for her two strongest subjects, Chinese and Maths - even though she already gets As in them.
The East Spring Secondary student is among a rising number of youngsters who are opting for tuition, regardless of how good their scores may be. She said: "Tuition lets me explore more and learn faster than my friends."
Even students at tertiary level are getting in on the act.
Ms Vivian Koh, 20, a first-year social sciences student at the Singapore Management University, will start tuition this week for a calculus module.
