Duli Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah College (Malay: Maktab Duli Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah, abbreviated as MDPMAMB; colloquially known as Maktab Duli or simply MD) is a sixth form school located in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. Established in 1974,[1] it is the first sixth form college in the country, and has since provided sixth form education leading up to GCE A Level qualification.

History[edit]

At the time of its establishment, Duli Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah College was simply known as Sixth Form Centre and was housed at the present campus of Paduka Seri Begawan Sultan Science College at Jalan Muara.[1] In 1979, it moved to the current campus in Gadong and eventually attained its present name on 17 April 1986.[1]

Academic[edit]

The college offers various A Level subjects in which students typically take three or four A-Level subjects for two years. The academic year starts at the end of February or early March, and ends with the A Level examination in October and November of the following year. Admission to the college, like the other sixth form schools in the country, is based on passing the GCE O Level examination during secondary years with credits. The taking of certain subjects may also require additional prerequisites, such as having been taking the same subjects in the previous level.
