GCE ‘A’ Level Curriculum


The inner circle centring on life skills ensures that students acquire sound values and skills to take them through life as responsible adults and active citizens. It comprises the non-academic curriculum.

The middle circle on knowledge skills seeks to develop students’ thinking, process and communication skills. This will enable students to analyse and use information and be able to express their thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively. It comprises skills-based subjects.

The outermost circle covers the subject disciplines i.e. Languages, Humanities & the Arts, and Mathematics & Sciences. It ensures that students have a good grounding across different areas of study.

Information on the institutions offering the GCE A-Level Curriculum and the subjects offered in these institutions can be found in the Joint Admission Exercise and Post-Secondary Education booklets. You may also access information on admission to local autonomous universities here.
