- Algebra
- Geometry and Trigonometry
- Calculus

Under Algebra, students are tested on:

- Quadratic functions
- Equations and Inequalities
- Polynomials and Partial Fractions
- Binomial Expansions
- Surds, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions

Under Geometry and Trigonometry, students are tested on :

- Trigonometric functions and trigonometric identities and equations
- Coordinate geometry in 2 dimensions

- Linear law (transformation of non-linear relationship to linear form)
- Proofs in Plane Geometry

Under Calculus, students are tested on :

- Differentiation and its application
- Integration and its application
- Application of differentiation and integration to problems involving displacement, velocity and acceleration of a particle moving in a straight line.
