The typical number of GCE Advanced Level (A-Level) subjects taken by students in Singapore is 3 or 4. However, the number of subjects may vary depending on individual schools and students’ academic goals.
Most students in Singapore take either 3 or 4 H2 (Higher 2) subjects, which are considered the main subjects and are more in-depth. Additionally, they may take 1 or 2 H1 (Higher 1) subjects, which are at a slightly lower level of difficulty and breadth.
In total, this adds up to either 4 or 5 subjects. The selection of subjects depends on the student’s interests, strengths, and future educational or career plans.
