2016 GCE O Level Results – Reminiscences

(0)
Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi the Tutor from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 10:59 pm (Singapore time)

When Miss Loi reminisces about all the years
She sees many things.

There were little victories and jubilation.

but also uncertainties and trepidation.

uncertainties

There was laughter and lame jokes, and sometimes ice cream.

There were moments of Darkness
through which many have strode

Striding through Darkness

And there were also tears.

First Few Days

But to her, these were but parts of a bigger Journey.

After all, whenever Miss Loi reminisces about the years,
She didn’t quite remember the grades

The annual oohs and ahhhs #olevel #olevels #olevel2016 #olevels2016 #olevelresults

Nor the mighty grade jumps

For with the passage of time
the mightiest of results will wither alike the least.

The memories that lived on
Were of those who had managed to turn around

Of those who managed to replace the “Up” in “Give Up” with “Your Best”

And of those who were enlightened to far more important things

So here we are, 10 years on …

Exams have come and gone.
Imaginary futures terrorised and appeased.

"Shooting stars never stop, even when they reach the top." #olevel #olevels #wishes

*Even as Miss Loi pens the last words of a dying chapter that began a decade ago
Judgment Day 2016 will soon be forgotten
Swept away like eraser crumbs in a battle hall

Yet Life goes on, like an echo in the wind.
Veiling greater deeds that are yet to come
By which all shall, and should, be judged.

For this is how we should be remembered.
For this is who we are.

We. Are. Influencers. #nuffsaid #tutors #tuition #teacher #teachers #tutorlife #teacherlife

*This post was written during the brief respite known as Chinese New Year, before Miss Loi gets drawn back to her neverending hurly-burly life of joss sticks sessions. Meanwhile have a happy 2017 everyone!

頑張って!!!

2014 GCE O Level Results – Wishes Come True

(0)
Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi the Tutor from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 9:39 am (Singapore time)

Blown along like little grains of sand, O Level 2014 Judgement Day is now but a page in the memories of those who were part of it.

The best O Level gift to Miss Loi is not the pen

The best O Level gift to Miss Loi is not the pen, but what’s written in the heart.

But oh boy, what those memories turned out to be, especially for those who made their hallowed wishes last October.

Now that all the “screaming” from last week has somewhat died down, Miss Loi can finally catch a breath to say a big CONGRATULATIONS to all for your efforts, as well as a big THANKS to the fantastic team at The Temple who helped, in no small way, to prove that, as long as you’re willing to work hard, wishes can and will come true.

The Temple’s Secret Location Isn’t That Secret Anymore

(0)
Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi's Temple aka Joss Sticks Tuition Centre from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 11:33 pm (Singapore time)

For a long, long time, Miss Loi’s Temple existed in it’s own little secret corner in Novena, away from the prying eyes of stalkers, scheming spies and shady salesmen.

The main reason, though, was to protect the sanctity of her joss sticks sessions from being interrupted by walk-in enquirers (through no fault of theirs, of course), especially during the peak LMBFH months and/or following the publication of some infamous newspaper article.

But ever since a hospitality “shrine” has been built and staffed to welcome all guests to the centre, leaving Miss Loi with the peace of mind to focus fully on her intensive, choky smoky joss sticks session at hand …

The Hospitality Shrine

… she’s now a little more confident to up the visibility of The New Temple just a wee bit. Starting with these new waymarkers to guide her new batch of students to the centre (and at the same time “sweep” away all academic sins) for the start of a new academic year (and also to say hi to the folks at Udders Ice Cream below :P)

The Sweeper of Academic Sins

And yes, Salvation’s only 21 steps away now 😉

Salvation's Only 21 Steps Away

P.S. The long overdue new Temple page will be updated soon – please bear with us 🙁

頑張って!!!

Almost Halloween: GCE O Level Oct/Nov 2014 A-Maths 4047 Paper 2 Suggested Answers & Solutions

Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi the Tutor from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 3:35 pm (Singapore time)

Remember me?

Sadako Loi

The Temple is dark and sad, and tears were shed.

Last Day @The Temple

Students with faces as sullen as mine were treasuring their final moments at the sanctuary before setting off for their final mathematical battle of their lives (at least until H1/H2/poly etc.).

P1000773a P1000813 P1000741

and more

By now, most would have slain and conquered the vile beast known as Additional Mathematics (new 4047 breed) this morning – with records of all lethal blows presented below:

GCE O Level 2014 AMaths 4047 Paper 2 Solutions

Access it here if you’re having trouble accessing it on Facebook using your state-of-the-art smartphone 🙁

As usual, please, please leave a comment should you spot any mistake in the solution.

Latest versions:

  • 1.0a: Q3(ii) – added explanation of comparing coefficients to clarify how to arrive at 4c = −4, as pointed out by this kind gentleman 😉

Notes from my Mistress:

  1. Before you ask questions like “I lost x marks in Paper 2, can I still get A1/A2/B3/B4/pass?” or “What is the cutoff for A1/A2/B3/B4/C5/C6/D7/E8/F9 this year?”, please understand that Miss Loi is NOT the Bell Curve Goddess.
  2. Please also understand that, unless things have changed, there is no half-mark awarded in O-Level Maths. Also it is nigh impossible for ECF if the part involved only carries 1 mark.

So, I can almost “see” you at Halloween on Friday. But it’s more important now to maintain your focus and keep hanging in there, as urged by this student at The Temple:

You Just Keep Hangin' On

P.S. And should you need some quick help to get a grip on your remaining papers beyond this most exhausting of weeks, The Temple shall be open this Sunday and next Saturday for your final Social Studies & Chemistry MCQ tune-up respectively.

Remember, remember. Now’s not the time to slip in November!

Boo!

Little Ghost

The shadows were long this morning while students battled the AMaths monster (a new breed of Kaiju which no one had faced before) on Day 2 of O Level Halloween Week.

As I flitted along under The Temple Gates, distant “screams” from many voices stung my unearthly ears …

Satanic AMaths tweet

Bruh Amaths tweet

Regardless of what happened this morning, here’s the list of possible topics to attack and finish off the monster that is AMaths Paper 2 tomorrow:

As for those of you who simply need to get it off your troubled minds, here what I found when I floated to my Mistress‘ desk.

Good luck on your battle against AMaths Paper 2 – the last thing standing between you and mathematical freedom! Boo!

P.S. Last but not least, this could be especially helpful to those of you whose “hit-points” may be running low after this battle-intensive week.
