VJC offers a total of 67 standard subject combinations in the Arts and Science courses. All combinations include General Paper, Project Work and Mother Tongue at Higher 1 (H1) level.
Students should have the requisite knowledge to offer Science and Mathematics subjects at A-Level and be able to cope with the demands of the A-level curriculum. Subjects offered in the Arts course do not have any pre-requisites; however, students should consider their strengths and interests closely when choosing their subjects.
To experience a broad-based education, all students in a junior college must offer at least one contrasting subject which is outside their main area of specialisation in the Arts or Science course.
Students in VJC can offer a Foreign Language as a Higher 2 (H2) subject in any of the subject combinations.
Since 2021, we have added H2 Computing and H2 Chinese Language and Literature to the list of subjects on offer.
