required to complete both Part A and Part B.
PART A – SHORT ESSAY
Please answer the following question in your essay:
A1. Singapore traces the foundation of her present bearings from her early past, to a significant extent. Many decisions, policies and growth catalysts arisen during the initial years have created a legacy, influencing how her economy looks like today.
Select any five of such factors (i.e. decisions/policies/growth catalysts) that occurred between the British founding of Singapore and the point before WWII, and explain how each factor still contributes to or impacts on the current features of the economy of Singapore.
PART B – ARTICLE REVIEW
Please study the article appended and answer all the following questions:
B1. Identify any two characteristics of Singapore revealed by the article, which may be her strengths in overcoming economic challenges ahead. Why do you think that these characteristics are considered strengths in this case?
B2. Identify any two characteristics of Singapore revealed by the article, which may be her weaknesses in overcoming economic challenges ahead. Why do you think that these characteristics are considered weaknesses in this case?
B3. The article also mentions a few common perceptions that foreigners have about Singapore. They may have differing degrees of truth in them. Identify any one economic-related perception which you feel is half-true or not true in reality. Discuss the reason(s) for your choice.
Note: The characteristics and perceptions have been expressed in the article through intended or unintended ways. Some of them may require inference, not being too obvious or straightforward at the first glance.

• Feel free to do further research from various print and online resources, not just from the lectures and readings.
• If there is a need to adapt excerpts from references, do attempt to cite the source (i.e. state where you quote it from) to avoid implications of plagiarism.
If you are unfamiliar with essay writing, below are some pointers which may help to start it off.
1. Understand the question thoroughly. • Else you risk getting out of point and not answering to what is being asked.
2. Plan a rough frame containing the key points that you would like to include in the essay.
• Omit unnecessary and irrelevant information. Reciting tons of examples and facts serves not much purpose if they do not help in connecting or justifying your arguments; worse, it may confuse towards the wrong direction.
• Possible structure if you do not have any in mind o Introduction: state brief stand to the question, set the stage leading to main text.
o Main text: include various points to explain arguments in detail.
o Conclusion: restate stand, summarise points and conclude how they link to the question.
3. Write the essay proper. • Split essay into logical sections and paragraphs, for easier reading and understanding.
