May I know which sentence is correct? 

(a) The handout of the slides should be two slides in a page.

(b) The handout of the slides should be two slides a page. 

(c) The handout of the slides should be two slides per page. 

Original Post

The intention of the statement is to instruct the students submit their presentation PowerPoint slides by printing two slides in one page of A4 paper. Is it still appropriate to use this sentence - The slide handout should have two slides a page.

If there is only one page, then you do not use "per/a page." You can say:

  • The slide handout page should have two slides.

In light of your clarification, it appears that that is what you are trying to say.

We can print the PowerPoint slides according the format of one-in-one, two-in-one, three-in-one, etc., but we only want them to use the format of one-in-one, what is the most appropriate sentence? 

First you said "two slides a/per page." Then you said there was only one page. Now you are saying one slide in one page. You need to decide once and for all what your meaning is. Only then can we help you formulate it in English.
