Uptas Learning Hub is inspired by Dr Aw Junxin’s education journey. He started his academic journey from a humble background with a below average PSLE score of 191 (in today’s context will be AL: 22) which barely make it to the express stream of a neighbourhood secondary school.
At the age of 13, when Dr Aw was in Sec 1, he was a struggling individual and placed in the last express class of the entire cohort and consistently ranked at the bottom 3 in the whole cohort out of 170 students. He was being labeled as “no hope”, “gangster” and friends started to distance away from him. It was at this point (Sec 2), Dr. AW made a decision that swiftly changed his entire academic life and instead of being labeled as useless by almost all people around him, he took ACTION and begin to divert all his energy into study instead of idling around or involve in unnecessary fights and detention.
His efforts paid off and quickly rise to the top 3 in class within the first half of the year and subsequently top in his class and ranked top 10 in the entire cohort within one year. And this was the first time, in his life he received his first top 5% Edusave scholarship awards. Ever since then, Dr. AW has been consistently placed in the top of his cohort from secondary, JC and even in university where he is consistently placed in the Deans’ List (The top 1% of the entire cohort). Coming from a humble beginning, Dr. AW understands the struggle of most students face and this is how UPTAS Learning Hub started. The name UPTAS means: UP To A Score (U to A). It is derived from the inspiration of Dr. Aw academic journey from an unmotivated and struggling U grade student to one of the top A*STAR Scholar with a PhD degree in Chemistry.
His life story has been an inspirational example to his students and he is a living proof for everyone that there is no limit of what you can achieve as long as you have the right strategy and mentor. In Uptas Learning Hub, he is going to be your tutor and mentor and show you his secret of how he achieved it and how you can replicate it to attain the dreams and desire you want.
Together with like-minded teachers like Ms Jesslyn Tham (a former JC lecturer), the learning hub specialises in Chemistry tuition for JC, IP and secondary students. All teachers are carefully selected for their deep specialisation in different fields of knowledge and dedication to help students excel.
