Course Information for 2024
The GCE A-Level requires students to take General Paper (GP), Project Work (PW) and Mother Tongue Language (MTL) at H1 level. Students are also required to offer 3H2 and 1H1 content-based subjects, at least one of which is a subject from a contrasting discipline.
Alternatively, students who have met SAJC’s requirements can also choose to study 4 H2 subjects, of which at least 1 must be from a contrasting discipline.
In order to be exempted from MTL, students are required to obtain at least a D7 for Higher Mother Tongue subject at GCE O-Level Examination. Students who offer Mother Tongue B Syllabus (MTB) at GCE O-Level Examination will continue with MTB at GCE A-Level.
The following tables show the 3H2 and 1H1 Subject Combinations offered in SAJC for 2024. These combinations will only be offered if there is sufficient demand.
3 H2 Subject Combinations
At most ONE of the following subjects may be used to replace one H2 subject in the above combinations provided students fulfil the contrasting subject requirement:
H2 Chinese Language & Literature (for 3A1, 2A1 and 2A2 only)
H2 Malay Language & Literature (for 3A1, 2A1 and 2A2 only)
H2 Tamil Language & Literature (for 3A1, 2A1 and 2A2 only)
1) At most ONE of the following subjects may be used to replace one H2 subject in the above combinations (with exceptions 3S3 and 3S4) provided students fulfil the contrasting subject requirement:
H2 Chinese Language & Literature
H2 Malay Language & Literature
H2 Tamil Language & Literature
2) H1 Math is recommended for 2S7 and 2S8.
For subject combinations with low demand, the College reserves the right to decide whether such subject combinations would be offered.
In choosing your subject combination, it is critical that you consider the course you would like to pursue in university.
4 H2 Subject Combinations
Students may offer 4 H2 subjects if they have attained a L1R5 (without bonus points) of 9 or better.
The following tables show the 4 H2 subject combinations offered in SAJC for 2024. These combinations will only be offered if there is sufficient demand.
As 4H2 Subject Combinations are more demanding, students would be engaged at College milestone assessment check points to determine whether they are coping well.
H3 subjects have syllabi that are of much higher level of difficulty. Students offering H3 subjects must have the time and ability to manage a workload beyond their subject combination. A H3 subject must be offered together with the corresponding subject at the H2 level.
H3 subjects may be offered to students to take in JC2 if they have scored distinctions for all H2 subjects in the JC1 Promotional Examination.
Students can apply for H3 subjects offered by one of the following MOE partners involving tertiary institutions such as SMU, NUS or NTU.
Alternatively, H3 subjects offered in SAJC include H3 Chemistry, H3 Mathematics, H3 Physics, H3 Literature, H3 Geography and H3 History.
