Advanced students in "special classes", known as SAP,or start learning Trigonometry and Advanced Algebra. For English, students start learning to write short stories and exploration of Shakespeare. For Science classes, students learn about agricultural contamination, industrial pollution and the origin of species (evolution).

Gifted Education Programme (GEP) students start learning the History of Mathematics, and Applications of Complex Algebra and Trigonometry in industrial circumstances. For English, GEP students start to learn writing their own novels, poetry and documentaries. For Science classes, students are encouraged to develop their own software applications such as iphone apps. GEP students also learn about the origin of the Empiricism in Science with the advent of European Enlightenment.
