All students who completed grade 12 and earn the minimum credits will graduate with the award of GEMS (Singapore) High School Diploma.
With the GEMS (Singapore) High School Diploma and additional American standardised testing (SAT & ACT admissions tests) students can gain admission to most English speaking university programmes around the world.
Students in Grades 11 and 12 who undertake the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Courses, instead of the full IB Diploma Programme will graduate with a GEMS (Singapore) High School Diploma accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
While students pursuing the IB Diploma undertake six IB Diploma courses at either Higher Level (HL) or Standard Level (SL), the High School Diploma students have more flexibility in the subject areas and level they wish to pursue.
Students can take five subjects at Standard Level and one Higher Level subject. In addition, all High School Diploma students are required to take English A or B to meet our graduation requirements.
The minimum credits must be earned as follows:
|Subject Area||Minimum for a High School Diploma 1||Recommended for many US Universities|
|Individuals and Society||2||4|
|Electives (other courses)||9||10|
|1 GEMS (Singapore) High School Diploma is accredited by WASC|
