Which schools offer A Levels in Singapore?

The GCE Advanced Level or International A Level is a secondary school leaving qualification in the UK and an international school qualification worldwide. Students normally sit three A Levels, but some sit four, and others as few as two.

Many local MOE schools in Singapore teach the Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (or Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-Level); this is managed by the Singapore Ministry of Education and is recognised internationally by universities.

These international and private schools and academies offer GCE/International A Levels:

Ascensia International School
Dimensions High School
DPS International School
Furen International School (FIS)
Insworld Institute
St Francis Methodist School
Tanglin Trust School
SSTC International Academy (SSTC-IA)
