Academic Programmes


At National Junior College, we believe in delivering quality education to all our students. Our education programmes are recognized and awarded Best Practice Award in Teaching and Learning in 2005.

Our College offers two education routes that lead to the GCE ‘A’ Level examinations:

  • 6 year Integrated Programme (Grades 7 to 12)
  • 2 year JC Programme (Grades 11 to 12)

Students who are admitted to NJC Integrated Programme will skip the GCE ‘O’ Level and take the GCE ‘A’ Level examinations at the end of their sixth year in NJC. Students who are admitted to NJC JC Programme (at JC1 level) must have taken their GCE ‘O’ Levels examinations or equivalent. They will take the GCE ‘A’ Level examinations at the end of their second year in NJC.
