Further, at the end of the module, it aims to enable students to acquire the necessary mathematical concepts and skills for continuous learning in mathematics and related disciplines, and for applications to the real world.

C.   Science – Physics, Chemistry (Subject Code: 5086)

This science education programme seeks to develop the academic students’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will allow them to take an informed position on scientific issues and tensions that may be facing them in today’s society.

D.  Principles of Accounts (Subject Code: 7087)

Accounting is an information system based on generally accepted accounting principles. It involves the recording and processing of business transactions, and communicating the information to stakeholders. The accounting information is used to evaluate business performance and facilitate decision-making. What sets the accountancy profession apart is the responsibility to act in the public’s interest.

Principles of Accounts (syllabus code 7175) is designed to provide students with a meaningful basic introduction to financial accounting and to develop an appreciation of the discipline of accounting. It is grounded in preparing, communicating and using financial information, and appreciating the need for ethical conduct. The subject places emphasis on the understanding and application of accounting knowledge to develop lifelong skills and values that will be of value in the increasingly complex world of business.


E.  Humanities – Social Studies with History (Subject Code: 2261)

Social Studies

The syllabus is organised around three Issues and is anchored in a set of knowledge skills and values outcomes. The three Issues correspond to
societal issues that have been shaping Singapore society and the world. The knowledge, skills and values acquired through a study of these Issues will enable students to enrich and deploy their competencies to respond to real world issues and in the process, strengthen their values as citizens.


The syllabus seeks to examine the key forces and developments which have shaped international history in the 20th century. Studying the impact of the
large scale conflicts and the rise of new regimes will allow students to appreciate the key forces and developments that challenged Europe’s dominance in world affairs. Through a study of the devastating effects of the two World Wars and the unchecked ambitions of the authoritarian states, students will better appreciate the need for collective security to prevent future conflicts. Students will understand that attempts at world peace are often challenged by the interests and ambitions of individuals and nations. The study of Communist Russia, Nazi Germany and Japan will enable students to understand how totalitarian regimes can bring about both benefits for some, and great costs for others.
