93.3 percent students who sat for the 2018 Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level (GCE A-Level) examinations passed their exams with at least 3 H2 passes, with a pass in General Paper (GP) or Knowledge and Inquiry (KI).
The Ministry of Education (MOE) stated that the students have collected their results on Friday (22 February).
The comparative numbers of the 2018 and 2017 A-Level examinations for school candidates are as follows:
|Year||Number of candidates||At least 3 H2 passes, with a pass in General Paper (GP) or Knowledge and Inquiry (KI)|
As announced earlier this month, A-Level graduates who are looking to further their studies at the polytechnics can now be exempted from one semester of polytechnic studies for more than 110 courses.
With this change, A-Level graduates who are not enlisting in National Service can enter the polytechnics in the same year that they receive their A-Level results, plus graduate with a polytechnic diploma one year earlier.
Interested applicants can apply to the polytechnics directly in mid-August 2019, the ministry said, adding that more details can be found on the respective polytechnics’ websites.
While, those who are interested in applying to the Autonomous Universities can apply directly via the respective universities’ websites.
