On 1 March 2013, ACJC saw the release of the GCE A-Level results for the 2012 batch of graduates. This is the 6th cohort taking the revised curriculum where all candidates offer at least 7 subjects comprising 3 H2 and 1 H1 content-based subjects of which at least one must be a contrasting subject, H1 General Paper (GP), or H2 Knowledge and Inquiry (KI), Project Work (PW) and H1 Mother Tongue Language.

A-Level Subjects
ACJC is proud to announce that the Class of 2012 has achieved outstanding results, continuing the College’s tradition of excellence in all-round education, living out our motto of “The Best Is Yet To Be”.

Based on the MOE indicator of “percentage of candidates obtaining at least 3 H2 passes, with a pass in GP or KI”, 94.3% of our 801 students achieved this, surpassing the national standard of 90.6%.

The College is delighted that 204 of our students, or 25.2%, obtained 3 distinctions or more for their H2 subjects.

H1/H2/H3 Subjects
Of the subjects offered at the H2 level, 12 subjects obtained 100% passes. 15 of the 16 H2 subjects had percentage passes at or above the national average while 9 H2 subjects had percentage distinctions above the national average.

Out of the 13 subjects offered at H1 level including Project Work, 9 subjects had percentage passes at or above national average while 8 H1 subjects had percentage distinctions at or above the national average.

The students who offered H3 subjects also performed well. H3 subjects are only offered to the brightest students in Singapore. Of the 16 subjects offered at H3 level, 8 subjects had percentage distinctions at or above the national average.

Students’ Achievements
The 2012 cohort performed extremely well at the GCE A-level examinations. For the first time in the College’s history, a student has achieved 9 distinctions at the A-Levels. In addition, there are 2 students with 8 distinctions, 10 students with 7 distinctions, 48 students with 6 distinctions, 78 students with 5 distinctions, 58 with 4 distinctions and 7 students with 3 distinctions.

The College would like to congratulate the Class of 2012, who have shown integrity, tenacity and passion in all that they undertook during their 2 years in ACJC. The following young men and women in particular exemplify the holistic education provided by the College. Lim Han Yang Benjamen from 2SA2 is a young man who demonstrates a strong passion for the sciences, having presented research papers both locally and internationally. Benjamen also balances his academic pursuits with co-curricular activities as the Captain of the ACJC Chinese Chess Team, as well as volunteering as an alumni tutor in the A-Square Programme of Bukit Panjang Government High School.

Koh Wen Jie of 2SA3 demonstrated a passion for learning beyond the curriculum during his time in ACJC. He enjoys languages, and in addition to taking part in various oratorical and debating activities in both English and Chinese, took up Korean at the Daehan Korean Language Centre. A basketball enthusiast, Wen Jie was also a member of the College’s Basketball team that took part in the 2012 A-Division Championships. He also shared his love for basketball with underprivileged students through a CCA-based Values-In-Action project with the Salvation Army.

Gideon Chen from 2SA5 has a sterling academic record as an A*STAR JC Science Award recipient. He also has a deep interest in the community.

He has also served as a mentor to primary school students in the Science and Mathematics Council’s ‘Little Professor’ enrichment camps.
