Integrated Programme (IP) Math Tuition
About the Integrated Programme (IP)
The GCE O-Levels serve as an essential intermediate benchmark for the majority of the secondary school students. However, pupils who are academically strong (normally the top 10 percent of the cohort) will be offered the Integrated Programme (IP) to engage in wider learning experiences during their secondary and JC years.
The IP programme was first introduced by the Ministry of Education in 2004. It enables a seamless upper-secondary and junior college education, where secondary school students can advance directly to junior college (JC) without the need to sit for the GCE O-Level examinations. It is a six years programme, which starts directly after PSLE and culminates in the GCE A-Levels, or other diplomas, such as the International Baccalaureate (IB).
The IP prgramme aims to foster greater flexibility and diversity in the education system so as to accommodate a variety of abilities and interests of the students. It is envisioned as a “through-train” education system that allows better use of the curriculum time to immerse students in broader learning to enhance their critical thinking, creativity, leadership skills and intellectual thinking.

About IP Maths
The Integrated Programme (IP) Maths is a special Maths syllabus that is unique to students from the various IP schools. Besides being different from non-IP schools, IP schools’ maths syllabi may also differ from each other. However, the topics covered are generally not far from O Level Maths topics.
One key feature of the IP Maths syllabus is that it generally incorporates A Maths elements, rather than keeping it as a separate subject. IP Maths bridges the gap between secondary school and junior college maths, in which students who take IP maths will find it easier to transition to doing more advanced maths with a smoother learning curve.
IP Maths Tuition Programme
Our IP Maths Tuition Programme is specially designed to follow closely with the IP schools’ syllabi, and equip our students with knowledge of key mathematical concepts and how to apply them to different types of questions.
The IP Maths Tuition Programme is conducted weekly in small group settings for 2 hours. We provide students with carefully crafted notes with examples to supplement their learning. Our question sets comprise basic questions to ensure understanding of fundamental concepts and challenging questions to expose students to higher-order and unfamiliar questions.
A typical class in the IP Maths Tuition Programme will include re-teaching of confusing and challenging concepts, highlighting key mistakes and misconceptions students commonly make, going through tutorial questions, and answering any questions students may have related to the lesson.
