What is the Integrated Programmes (IP)? Is it any different from the local O/A level syllabus?
While the GCE ‘O’ Levels serve as a valuable intermediate benchmark for the majority of our students, those who are clearly university-bound can benefit from engaging in broader learning experiences during their Secondary and JC years. The Integrated Programmes (IP) will provide an integrated secondary and JC education where secondary school students can proceed to JC without taking the GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations. Schools offering IP will optimise the time freed up from preparing for the GCE ‘O’ Levels to stretch students and provide greater breadth in the academic and non-academic curriculum. However, these schools will continue to have school-based assessments to measure students’ progress.
The IP leads to the ‘A’ Level examinations or other Diplomas.
The 6-year IP is offered at the following schools:
|Anglo-Chinese School (Independent)||6-year IP leading to the International Baccalaureate Diploma.|
|Dunman High School
Hwa Chong Institution

Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary)/ Raffles Institution (Junior College)

|4-year IP leading to the ‘A’ levels|
Why IP students require IP tuition?
IP Students have to perform well in their GCE ‘A’ Level examinations so that they can advance to University. Otherwise, they will only be getting the PSLE certificate. In order to perform well in GCE ‘A’ Levels, students have to build a strong foundation by mastering the basic knowledge from Secondary school.
