Subject Combination

Millennia Institute offers the GCE A-Level curriculum to our students. All students are required to offer 10 to 12 Academic Units of study including two compulsory Knowledge Skills subjects (General Paper and Project Work), four content-based subjects and Mother Tongue Language.


All A-Level subjects are classified at H1, H2 or H3 level. General Paper, Project Work and Mother Tongue Language are H1 subjects. Of the four content-based subjects, students offer three at H2 level and one at H1 level. The combinations of the four content-based subjects offered by the Institute are shown in the table below:

Note:

*AC01, AC02 and AC03 are offered to students in Arts and Commerce streams.

#CS01 is offered to students in Commerce and Science streams. Students in Science stream who choose to offer CS01 must choose H1BIO, H1CHEM or H1PHY as the H1 content-based subject.

^Students who wish to offer S05 or S06 must have the following assumed knowledge at GCE O-Level:   

  • Achieved at least C6 in both relevant Pure Science subjects at GCE O-Level OR
  • Achieved at least C6 in one relevant Pure Science subject AND at least B4 in one relevant Combined Science subject at GCE O-Level OR
  • Achieved at least A2 in one relevant Combined Science subject AND at least C6 in Additional Mathematics at GCE O-Level.


Considerations to Note


Merit-Based Allocation

Students are allocated to their choice of subject combination based on academic merit, including their L1R4 aggregate score or equivalent, and performance in the relevant subject(s). The allocation also depends on the number of places that are available for each subject. In the event that a subject is oversubscribed, allocation is done based on academic merit.


Assumed Knowledge

Students who chose to offer Science and Mathematics subjects need to be aware of the assumed knowledge1 of the corresponding subject at GCE O-Level.

Subjects

Subject Level

Assumed Knowledge

Mathematics

H22

Knowledge of the content of the O-Level Mathematics syllabus and some of the content of the O-Level Additional Mathematics syllabus are assumed.

Biology

H12

Knowledge and understanding of O-Level Biology, either as a single subject or as part of a balanced science course is assumed.

H22

Chemistry

H12

Knowledge and understanding of O-Level Chemistry, either as a single subject or as part of a balanced science course is assumed.

H22

Physics

H12

Knowledge and understanding of O-Level Physics, either as a single subject or as part of a balanced science course is assumed.

Note:

1 Assumed knowledge refers to the set of content knowledge that students are expected to have learnt in advance, usually as part of a corresponding subject at GCE O-Level, which will not be taught but is needed in the course of learning the GCE A-Level syllabus. Students without the assumed knowledge may offer the subject but will be required to bridge the knowledge gap during the course of study on their own.

Other Considerations

In the event that a critical mass of students is not met for a particular subject or a particular subject combination, the Institute reserves the right not to offer the subject or subject combination.


University Course Prerequisite

Your choice of higher education or career in the future may require you to pursue certain undergraduate courses at a university. Some university courses may have subject prerequisite that you need to fulfill before you can apply. You are advised to check the minimum requirements and indicative grade profile from the university websites before you make a decision on the subject combination to offer.
