This preparatory course is for 17 years old and above high school graduates and current students. The aim is to prepare students to sit for the annual GCE A-Level Examination held from the end of October to early December to gain entry to a Singapore university. The subjects offered are General Paper, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

There are both government and private universities in Singapore. Public schools are government schools. They are registered and managed by the Ministry of Education, Singapore. There are also various types of private schools in Singapore. Private schools are generally run by private companies or non-profit organisations.

These institutes accept both local and foreign students, with foreign students making up 25% of the student population. It is an entirely English learning environment where English is used as the main medium of speech for all university subjects
