From 2012, seven new schools will offer the Integrated Programme, bringing the total to 18.
The seven schools are Victoria School, Cedar Girls’ Secondary, Methodist Girls’ School, St Joseph’s Institution, Catholic High School, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School and the Singapore Chinese Girls’ School.
From 2012, Victoria School and Cedar Girls’ Secondary will be paired with Victoria JC, which already runs the programme.
Mr Low Eng Teong, Principal of Victoria School said: “Students may come into the IP and decide after a while that they are more suited for the O-levels.
“And vice versa, a student in the O-levels who may not gain entry into the IP in the first place, a sort of late-bloomer, may find that they have the attributes and be allowed to cross over.”
