Upon completion of the course, students will sit for the Singapore–Cambridge General Certificate of Education Ordinary Level Examination which is conducted annually. Awarded by the Ministry of Education, the certification will allow students to apply for admission to polytechnics in Singapore as well as overseas institutions.

TMC’s Preparatory Courses for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations also include an elective module that prepares students for another similar examination, Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).

It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide and is an international passport to progression and success. Students who wish to study outside Singapore after ‘O’ level may choose to take the elective module, IGCSE Preparation.
