Singapore (11 - 12)

  • Introduction

Education in Singapore is managed by the Ministry of Education (MOE). Junior colleges are pre-university institutions in Singapore that offer two-year pre-university courses that lead to either the Singapore-Cambridge GCE Advanced Level (A-level exam) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP).

  • How many years is the program?

It is a two-year program for students of grades 11 and 12.

  • Which age groups and years is it for?

The typical age group of students from grade 11 and 12 is 17-18 years.

  • Which subjects are offered?

In general, the subjects offered under the current Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-level Examinations are divided into the following groups –

  • Science & Mathematics Group
  • Languages Group
  • Humanities and the Arts Group
  • Commerce Group (for Millennia Institute only)
  • What is the grading system and how are the students assessed?

All percentages with their corresponding grades shown below are just approximate guidelines because ultimately at the end of all major examinations the Ministry of Education, Singapore, will moderate the results. Hence, an A grade for instance may no longer be at 70%. It could possibly be 68% or even 73% depending on the performance of the cohort. This is usually done to prevent grade inflation.

  • A: 70% or Above
  • B: 60% to 69%
  • C: 55% to 59%
  • D: 50% to 54%
  • E: 45% to 49% (passing grade)
  • U: Below 45% or sometimes 39%

Grade U will be awarded if a candidate fails to achieve at least a grade E in the main subject paper and will not be reflected in the A level result certificate.

Different JCs have different expectations and thus, the school reserves the discretion to moderate the marks when deemed necessary. For example, some JCs may regard 50% as the passing mark instead of 45% by others.

  • Key features and highlights of the curriculum

The goal of the curriculum is to provide students with practical knowledge and skills that will help to solve challenges in the real world. Singapore’s schooling system encourages project work and creative thinking. As a result, classes focus on equipping students with particular problem-solving skills and knowledge in the subjects.
