What is the GCE O Level Exam?
Representing the culmination of a 4 year learning journey, the GCE O Level is a series of exams, covering a portfolio of at least 6 different subject areas, which serve as a pivotal academic touchstone that is administered by MOE to eligible secondary school students in Singapore.
Students’ performances in the O-Level exams are central to determining their future academic progression pathways to tertiary education. The O-Level learning journey also aims to inculcate and foster the following relevant life skills embedded in the subject curriculum:

The O Level Education Landscape in Singapore
Throughout their 4-year learning journey, secondary school teens will be continuously challenged with ever increasingly complex concepts at an accelerated pace and the application of rapidly expanding depth and breadth of subject matter. Since the learning journey is intended to be sequential and progressively incremental, conscientious learning and mastery of early stage fundamental knowledge forms the basis to achieving a competitive academic performance. Many students with a weaker understanding of these foundational concepts struggle to cope at the Upper Secondary levels when more complex subject matter is introduced.
All students graduating from Secondary 2 undergo a mandatory streaming exercise to identify their subject strengths and interests which will determine their access to examinable O-level subject combinations and hence influencing their future career choices. Popular subject combinations include the triple science option of “Biology, Chemistry and Physics” and full Humanities options of “English Literature, Geography and/or History” which tend to be oversubscribed at every Secondary school with keen competition for places in every cohort.
Upper Secondary students also wrestle simultaneously with large portfolios of 6 to 10 academic subjects each, often citing the lack of time for adequate study and revision as a key limitation and impediment to their learning, subject content mastery and, hence, academic success. These students would demonstrably benefit from proven, structured and effective learning techniques which should greatly accelerate subject knowledge mastery and translate into improved academic performance in the subject and indirectly unlock more study time for the other subjects.
It is against the backdrop of this highly competitive educational landscape that studies have reported that as many as 60% of Singaporean secondary school students benefit receive tuition to boost and reinforce their learning journeys in their quest for improved grades and academic excellence to achieve admission to the top Junior Colleges (Raffles, Hwa Chong, National Junior Colleges) of the country and also vy for limited placements in the cohorts for their desired choice of subject combination specialisation. Students ultimately realise that their O-Level success is directly linked to their ability to access these life determining options with resulting outcomes having an indelible impact on their future careers and lives.
