  • Science combinations offered at IJC in 2012. One should listen to the school’s subject talks during orientation, in particular, information regarding criteria and appeal.
  • Arts combinations offered at IJC in 2012.
  • One should decide on a subject combination that leads to a desired course at the university. Slide shows subject requirements for various courses at NTU.
  • A glimpse of a pure maths question on maxima/minima which has been covered at O-level. In fact one can already do this question with O-level knowledge.
  • An example of a probability and statistics question. With your knowledge on probability tree, most parts of this question can be attempted already.
  • Details will be elaborated.
