Guiding Principles for curriculum design
Balance between breadth (overall design & LS) &
depth (Xs)
 Balance between theoretical & applied learning (Xs
& COC, Core & elective parts in each subjects)
 Flexible & diversified – time allocation, timetabling
 Learning how to learn & inquiry-based learning
 Smoother articulation to multiple pathways(varied
combinations of elective subjects & COC)
 Greater coherence (LS to complement Xs subjects,
KLAs in basic education)

