Short writeup:

Tanjong Katong Girls' School A Math Papers have been a staple in my reviews since 2018, consistently offering insightful and occasionally creative questions. This year's paper is no different, presenting a formidable challenge even for top-performing A Math students. While many of the insightful questions have appeared in other schools' prelim papers, the unique ones tend to be more tedious than intellectually stimulating, requiring effort rather than wit.

The paper is notably long, demanding significant tenacity and stamina from students. Many questions involve multiple steps and layers, designed to test endurance and concentration, often leading to careless mistakes if not approached with sustained focus.

Overall, this paper is excellent for building stamina and testing the limits of a student's concentration. I recommend using it for topical practice by selecting specific questions. I've included several questions from TKGS A Math papers in my prelim vault for my students' topical revision.
