The IP programme (“through-train” programme) is a prestigious scheme that allows for students who have excelled in their studies in their primary or secondary school to skip the GCE O level examination and directly sit for the A level examination at the end of 6 years of secondary and junior collage education. Students that have gone through the IP programme are said to be more prepared, and better equipped to handle A levels due to the rigour of their curriculum.
Our articles outline differences in O level and IP curriculum, IP Tuition, the benefits/ pros and cons of the integrated programme as well as the key considerations one should have before applying for an IP school.
