Academic General

The Class of 2018 has achieved excellent results once again. Their exceptional showing at this year’s A-levels is a celebration of a centenary of holistic excellence.

This cohort has put forth a strong showing, with a comparable performance to the last two cohorts. Sustaining the strong performance of their seniors, 6 out of 10 scored 3 H2 Distinctions and above.

13 subjects recorded improvements. The following subjects posted significant increases in distinctions: H1 General Paper; H1 Physics; H1 Literature in English; H2 Mathematics; H2 Chemistry and Physics; H2 Chinese Language and Literature; H2 Knowledge and Inquiry; H2 Further Mathematics; H2 China Studies in Chinese; and H2 English Language and Linguistics.

Both H2 Chinese Language and Literature and H2 Further Mathematics have posted record performances in distinction rates.

Besides their sterling academic results, the Class of 2018 has also excelled holistically:

  • More than 600 students have been conferred the Hwa Chong Diploma;
  • They have continued Hwa Chong's tradition of excellence with 54 World Championship Titles (2006-2019) and;
  • They also took home 55 Top 3 titles at the Interschool Sports Championships in 2018. The Hwa Chong Cross Country team also swept all titles across the 4 divisions, emerging as champions in the A division boys’ and girls’ team categories as well as the B and C Division boys.

To date, 5 Hwa Chong students have been offered provisional Public Service Commission Scholarships. One student has also been offered the provisional Singapore Police Force Scholarship, the only female in the history of the nation to date.

Even before the release of the GCE A-Level results, 13 students have been admitted to Peking and Tsinghua Universities for bicultural excellence.

This year, 42 Hwa Chong students have received offers to Cambridge and Oxford Universities.

Over 500 offers have also been made to Hwa Chong students from US and UK universities such as Yale University, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Michigan, Imperial College London, London School of Economics, and University College London.
