The Curriculum

KYUEM's A-Level programmes are intensive. Apart from the 3 or 4 core subjects, students may also read an extra one or two AS Level subjects of their choice and other compulsory Key Skills subjects alongside Islamic/Moral and Malaysian Studies.

Cambridge A-Level is divided into two (2) phases - AS and A2 Level.
AS Level contains half of the syllabus offered in a subject, most likely the materials that students would learn in their first year. A2 Level would cover the other half of the subject syllabus, which will be taken by students in their second year.

The College offers three academic streams: Arts, Mathematics, and Science. Students choose combination of subjects from the three streams.

Accounting

This subject enables learners to apply their accounting knowledge and understanding in order to analyse and present information, give reasoned explanations, and make judgements and recommendations. The syllabus covers topics such as the recording of financial information, accounting principles and control systems, and the preparation of final accounts for a variety of different organisations and businesses.

Learners find out about raising capital by shares and loans, ratio analysis and cost accounting, and also study the preparation of cash flow statements, cash flow analysis, and standard costing and investment appraisal, among many other topics

Economics

Economics is the social science that analyzes the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. Through the AS and A-Level Economics syllabus, students learn how to explain and analyse economic issues and arguments, evaluate economic information, and organise, present and communicate ideas and judgments clearly.

The syllabus covers a range of basic economic ideas, including an introduction to the price system and government intervention, international trade and exchange rates, the measurement of employment and inflation, and the causes and consequences of inflation. Students also study the price system, the theory of the firm, market failure, macroeconomic theory and policy, and economic growth and development.

English Literature

In the English Literature class students study different genres in the form of drama, prose fiction (novels and short stories), and poems written by authors from around the world in different time periods from Pre-20th century to Contemporary. In addition, the class offers insight on how to effectively analyse writing style, language and meaning thus students will be able to offer critical viewpoints through written and oral expression. The students also engage in meaningful discussion which helps in understanding different perspectives of cultural, historical and social aspects of literature and the world.

Geography

In the AS level, students will learn about the Core Physical Geography and Core Human Geography which comprises of hydrology and fluvial geomorphology, atmosphere and weather, rocks and weathering, population, migration and settlement dynamics.

Students will cover more in-depth topics from Advanced Physical Geography and Advanced Human Geography in their second year of A-Level.

History

In this subject student will cover the topic of International Peace and Security (League Nations 1919-1939) and Modern Europe (Origins of World War One and Russian Revolution) in the AS Level.
The A-Level components will cover The Origins of Cold War and Europe of the Dictators 1918-1941. Students will be assessed through essay writing, historiography tasks and analysis of historical evidence.

Biology

The subject prepares students to understand unfamiliar subject related materials in fundamental cellular functions, biochemical processes, DNA as the molecule of heredity, natural selection, and organisms in their environment. The fundamental aspects of observations and experiments are also intertwined via learning practical processes and fieldwork.

Chemistry

In this subject learners can use concepts to understand unfamiliar subject related materials in atoms and forces, experiments with evidences, patterns in chemical behaviours, chemical reactions and bonds, energy and rate of reactions.

Marine Science

In this subject, student will be learning about scientific study of the ocean and its ecosystems in the AS Level.

In the A2 Level, the subject will cover topics regarding human activities which we depend on it and how they give impact the ocean.

Physics

Some of the topics that will be covered in the AS Level include energy and power, deformation of solids, D.C. circuits, and particles and nuclear physics

Students will learn more in-depths topics in the A-Level which include electromagnetic induction, alternating currents and quantum physics.

Mathematics

In this subject, it is compulsory for students to study Pure Mathematics (P1) and Statistics (S1) in the AS Level while having an option to choose between Mechanics (M) and Statistic (S2) in the A-Level along with Pure Mathematics (P3).

Further Mathematics

This subject is aimed at students intending to pursue a degree course in a subject such as Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, Actuarial Science or Economics at a top university.
As this is a highly demanding course, we would only recommended for those students who have encountered no difficulty with Mathematics in the past and have achieved A+/A in SPM Additional Mathematics or A*/A in IGCSE Additional Mathematics.

Students receive twice as many mathematics lessons as Single Mathematics students.Prospective Further Mathematics students need to have an interest, dedication and flair for the subject.
In the first year students complete the full A level Mathematics course consisting of Pure Mathematics (P1 & P3), Mechanics (M) and Statistics (S1). To continue with the Further Mathematics subject, students are expected to have achieved at least a grade A (preferably A*) for their CAIE A level Mathematics.

In the second year students will study Further Pure Mathematics (2 papers), Further Mechanics (1 paper) and Further Statistics (1 paper).

Certain subject combinations are required depending on the degree route that the student is planning to undertake upon completion of the A-Level programme. University studies require a great deal of individual work and research. Thus, A-Level is an excellent preparation for university courses.

Subject combination would usually be flexible depending on the courses taken. Most universities require minimum of 3 subjects, however, we would recommend students to take 4 instead with the option of dropping one unfavorable subject later. Additional subjects are up to students' interest and passion to excel.

Note:

1. Chemistry is the essential subject for Life Science courses especially Medicine.

2. Maths and Physics are important for courses in the Engineering field.

We provide academic guidance and monitoring, carefully considering each case that is uniquely tied to an individual, factors such as subject combinations, taken courses and universities' and sponsor's requirement will be taken into account when guidance are given to students.

At KYUEM, we believe that students should take responsibility and initiative for their own learning and develop the critical faculties necessary for success at A-Level and beyond. Much of the teaching and learning is enquiry-based designed for developing critical and independent thinking.
