**Requirements**

- The GCE A-Level curriculum requires students to undertake the following subjects:
- 3 H2 and 1 H1 content-based subjects (at least one of which must be from a contrasting discipline),
- H1 Mother Tongue Language (MTL),
- H1 General Paper (GP) or H2 Knowledge and Inquiry (KI),
- H1 Project Work (PW).

- Students who have obtained 10 points or better for their L1R5 raw aggregate, AND 8 points or better in their 4 relevant ’O’ Level subjects are eligible to take 4 H2 content-based subjects, of which at least one must be from a contrasting discipline.

- Students who achieve a grade of D7 or better in ‘O’ Level Higher MTL is exempted from taking H1 MTL. Students who offer Mother Tongue B Syllabus (MTB) at O-Level will continue with MTB at GCE A-Level.
- Students who obtain a grade of D7 or better in 'O' Level Higher MTL are NOT allowed to replace H1 MTL with another content subject.
- Students who wish to take H2 KI must take a selection test. KI can only be taken as the 4th H2 subject.
