About GCE in Singapore

                The Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (GCE A-Level) is a type of national exam, which is a counterpart of the United Kingdom’s GCE A-level examination, that can be taken both by public and private schools in Singapore. This exam was introduced way back in 1975 and was delinked in 2002 from UK’s GCE A-level examination. This was done by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to gain control over the examination which makes it easier to be adjusted that it may fit with the Singaporean school curriculum. In this way, both the Western and Asian education methods are fused to create globally competitive graduates who have unlocked their full potentials by gaining the needed leadership skills, integrity, social responsibility, and cultural awareness.Because of this, the Singaporean students always outperformed other students from advanced economies like Canada, Japan, Taiwan, and Switzerland based on the recent Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). Passing this exam would mean that the institution can produce graduates that are qualified to study in internationally acclaimed universities. So, if you plan on pursuing higher education, choose to enroll in secondary school.
