You will do History mods, but you won't do a full load like History majors. Selected Mods. If i had to estimate, you'll probably do year 1/2 History mods. You'll have to pick a second subject to major in. Like for me, I took English/Geo.

So you'll be expected to take English + Geo + Teaching pedagogy mods. There's very little chance to chose 'electives' outside of your needed mods, but it's possible to do them.

Iirc, it's a Bachelor of Arts, secondary route with concentration in History right ? I can't really give you a spec syllabus since you can chose quite alot of different mods to take. But if you're doing history, be mentally prepared to take on SE Asian history. And i think you'll get asked to teach SS too.

yupp BA and they offered me history prior to the interview. does that mean i can only do mods in history and on eonther subject? i won't be able to take other mods in lets say ntu? like different electives maybe? but at least it doesn't sound as hardcore as doing FASS (history) major in NUS. SEA history sounds fun! i was interested in south asian and south east asian studies offered by NUS FASS when i read about it. but SS sounds not as exciting hahaha. will i be able to take lets say tamil/history or english/history as my AS2? with history being my AS1..

Weaboo, subjects depends on the School. You can indicate on the portal and Schools will contact you if they require assistance in those subjects you mentioned.

For polytechnic graduates, you can apply for Relief Allied Educator (READ) scheme.

Refer to MOE website for more information.

With regards to teaching MT, talk to your NIE/NTU admissions counselors. Tell them about your interest and see what they say. My friend was rejected to teach Malay/Math when she signed up. I think because she did not take Malay at A levels.

But you can fit another subject (AS2) in. History goes with English or Geo or Lit or SS if you so wish. Never seen anyone pair humanities and science together before though.

If you can, go for it. But make sure to do all this before you sign the final contract to start your studies. Once you do, it's very hard to switch.

I think they will look more at your Poly/A levels then O levels.
I might be wrong. But no harm trying to apply.

Me too mostly - only things I ever took back from secondary school was English (which was very badly taught), and math. Needed it for some courses in Uni.

Question Honours vs Non-Honours

Is there any difference in pay increment for honours and non-honours students?

From my 4 years of teaching, it's purely performance based.
The pay difference is at point of graduation, if you have honors or non-honors. But after that, it's yearly appraisals.
