With 25 subjects to choose from, 5th year students at The Institute of Education can create their own timetable. Students can also change or take up a new subject at certain times under the supervision of a guidance counsellor.

Students cover 75% of the subject content in their 5th year lessons, with regular testing and continuous assessment in all subjects.

Students have access to a range of extra-curricular activities and are also provided with constant academic mentoring, study skills seminars, and career guidance, providing them with an invaluable foundation for 6th year.
