“Math” Stream Subjects for JC 

math stream subject for jc

In the Singapore Junior College (JC) curriculum, the distinction between a “math stream” and a “science stream” is not explicitly made. Instead, the curriculum is organized into two main streams: the Arts and the Science stream. The term “Science stream” is used to encompass subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics, reflecting an emphasis on science-related disciplines.

Mathematics is an integral part of the Science stream because it is a foundational subject for many science and technology-related courses. In the Science stream, students typically take a combination of science subjects along with Mathematics at the Higher 2 (H2) level. This combination provides students with a strong foundation in both mathematical concepts and scientific principles, enabling them to pursue a wide range of university courses related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Therefore, while there is no specific “math stream,” the Science stream inherently includes a significant focus on mathematical concepts to prepare students for a broad spectrum of higher education and career options in STEM fields.

A Level Course Requirements 

As per MOE regulations: 

The GCE A-Level curriculum requires students to undertake the following subjects:

3 H2 and 1 H1 content-based subjects (at least one of which must be from a contrasting discipline),

H1 Mother Tongue Language (MTL),

H1 General Paper (GP)

H1 Project Work (PW).

⮚Students who have obtained 10 points or better for their L1R5 raw aggregate, AND 8 points or better in their 4 relevant O-Level subjects are eligible to take 4 H2 content-based subjects, of which at least one must be from a contrasting discipline.

Science Stream for JC 

Option 1 

With the above requirements, this means that students will be able to take a total of 3 H2 subjects, with 3 of the subjects being science H2 subjects to form the majority and be part of the science stream.
Note* Math is also considered as a science subject for some JC courses.


Refer to the following for some of the combinations from CJC:

Stream H2 Subjects H1 Subjects (choose one)
Science Math Chem Phy Econs, Geo, Hist, Lit
Math Econs Phy Chem, Geo, Hist, Lit

Option 2

Alternatively, if you can also choose to take 4 H2 subjects. This means that you can take a total of 4 H2 subjects, with 3 of the subjects being science H2 subjects to form the majority and be part of the science stream.  This option requires that students obtain an overall average ‘C’ grade for the 4 H2 subjects in JC1.
