Advanced Elective Modules (AEMs)

To provide a greater diversity of curricula while ensuring that students continue to benefit from a broad-based education, secondary schools, in collaboration with polytechnics, have begun offering Advanced Elective Modules (AEMs) under the guidance of the Ministry of Education since October 2006.

AEMs are elective modules in applied topics that can enhance the learning experience of secondary school students through practice-oriented approaches. The experience will also help them to discover their strengths and interests and have a taste of how polytechnic courses are conducted.

AEMs from a variety of fields are offered by polytechnics. Students will be exposed to learning approaches adopted in the polytechnics, which involve a higher practical component as well as more group work. AEMs also employ assessment approaches that are similar to those found in polytechnics, e.g, project work, group assignments and oral presentations.

In terms of recognition, the AEMs will be reflected in the School Holistic Report Card, which is given to students at the end of each school year.

For more information and to register your students for the AEMs, please contact:
