Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board - Examinations For Tertiary Education - Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'A' Level

Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'A' Level

The Singapore-Cambridge GCE Advanced Level examination, like the other examinations, is conducted annually. It is taken before the completion of 2 years of Junior College or 3 years at Millenia Institute (tertiary education) at the post-secondary level. Like the GCE 'O' Levels, the 'B' syllabus subjects are not counted towards the total aggregate score.

The GCE 'A' Level examinations require students to read a compulsory H1 General Paper subject or alternative-H2 Knowledge and Inquiry (KI) alongside with 3 Higher-2 and 1 Higher-1 subjects (minimum of 10 Academic Units (A.U)). One out of the 4 content-based subject must be of a cross-disciplinary nature.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the common subjects offered at GCE 'A' Level Examinations:

Arts-based: Economics, Geography, History, English Literature, Theatre Studies and Drama* (only offered at H2 level and at selected institutions)

Science-based: Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Geoengineering

Famous quotes containing the word level:

    If there is a price to pay for the privilege of spending the early years of child rearing in the driver’s seat, it is our reluctance, our inability, to tolerate being demoted to the backseat. Spurred by our success in programming our children during the preschool years, we may find it difficult to forgo in later states the level of control that once afforded us so much satisfaction.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)
