Taking your GCE A Level

The Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education (Advanced Level) Examination is conducted in Singapore annually (November/December). It is widely recognised around the world and is a benchmark entry qualification for many universities.

It is awarded jointly by the Ministry of Education and the University of Cambridge International Examinations.

Our 10-month accelerated preparatory course is ideal for learners who wish to retake an A Level, or for those who did not complete the course in their government school.

The Preparatory Course for Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate Of Education (Advanced Level) Examination conducted by SmartLab Education Private School is offered to Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residence only.

What the full-time course includes

This programme is wholly delivered in Singapore. The maximum class size is 18, with an average teacher-to-student ratio of 1:7.

Each 10-month course includes exam-focused lessons, interactive discussions, hands-on activities and group tasks, which are conducted daily in our classrooms.

For certain subjects such as Chemistry, it also includes practical experiments, which take place in our laboratory.

We conduct internal assessment twice a year (May and September) to assess your abilities. You will also complete practice tests to prepare for your formal assessments. Occasionally, you may be invited to take part in educational field trips, excursions or inter-class competitions.

Resources and materials will be provided for you, including subject textbooks, past exam papers and supplementary notes. You will also have access to the SmartLab library.
