What is GCE A-Level?
The Singapore GCE A-Level examination is taken by students in their final year of junior college and is held annually in Singapore during the months of October to November. Conducted jointly by the Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) and the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES), the Singapore A-Level is a different version of the international A-Level.
The Singapore GCE A-Level examination is an international qualification recognised and accepted by most universities. In places such as the United States and Canada, good grades in carefully chosen GCE A-Level subjects can result in up to one year of university course credit.
GCE A-Level Grading
Subjects are graded alphabetically in the following manner:
Grades ‘S’ and ‘U’ indicate that the student has failed to obtain a pass in the particular subject. These two grades do not appear on the certificate but will be shown on the result slip.
