Starting from 2006, students entering Junior Colleges (JCs) and Millennia Institute take an A-Level curriculum that emphasises breadth of learning and flexibility.
Students will be given opportunities to learn from the following three different disciplines: Languages; Humanities & the Arts; and Mathematics & Sciences. For instance, a Humanities/ Arts student will take at least one contrasting subject from the Mathematics and Sciences disciplines, and vice versa.
More information can be found on the Ministry of Education website.
What is Project Work (PW)?
- It aims to provide students with the opportunity to explore the inter-relationships and inter-connectedness of subject-specific knowledge; encourages students to break away from compartmentalised learning, and to develop the ability to integrate information and make meaningful links between different strands of knowledge.
- A group of 4 or 5 students will conduct a project based on the project task given (i.e. question), under the supervision of a supervising tutor.
- PW is calculated as a H1 subject and thus the grading system is the same as other H1 subject (ie. A, B, C, D, E, S & U).
What is the structure of PW?
Consists of 2 papers:
|Paper 1||(a) Written Report (WR)
Produce a written report of 2500 to 3000 words on the project
(b) Insights and Reflections (I&R)
Produce a written reflection of 500 words on the ideas generated as a group or individually in the process of completing the project
|40% of overall mark
10% of overall mark
|Paper 2||Oral Presentation (OP)
Give an oral presentation on the project and answer questions posed by the assessors
|50% of overall mark|
Offering Subjects at H3 Level
The H3 curriculum is designed to allow exceptionally strong students who have the ability to cope with a workload beyond the norm to pursue a subject or area for which they have the interest and aptitude. Students who offer H3 curriculum are therefore expected to be self-directed in their learning.
