Singapore Polytechnic-Central Institute of Technology (CIT) Joint Examination Board’s A-Level examination. Both examinations have to conduct annually in May.

All secondary schools, including Special Assistance Plan schools, conduct the GCE O Level examination as part of their sixth form curriculum.

All students who have completed four years of secondary education are eligible to take the GCE O Level examination.
