When will the school inform ?
In our year, the oral exam session schedule was out on 20 July, and the oral exam took place on 17 August.

In our class, the sequence was all 40 students had CL on day 1 and all 40 students had EL on day 2. I still have the schedule with me.

Re: School of Science and Technology

I am genuinely interested because I still don’t understand. Can give some examples of other reasons? That would help me understand whether or not to advise my child to pursue this combi. Can I offer a reason? I asked the current upper sec students (my child’s cca seniors and children of my friends)...

Re: 2020 P1 Registration Exercise for 2021 In-take

Hm wait, I changed my mind, maybe sounds too much like ITE college West, North etc. Rename to Gifted Elite Primary (G.E.P.) School. Super bored. This thread is like so dead after everyone went to WhatsApp group chats. Is it because the registration hasnt started? Anyway I dont think it is the name,...

Re: Secondary School Chinese

I think it is a hypothetical question. Because quite simply, - if the IP student is not strong in Higher Chinese, he/she would drop HCL and take O level CL in sec 4. - if the IP student is not strong in Higher Chinese but somehow the school does not allow him/her to switch to CL, then this student ...

Re: Secondary School Chinese

IP students need only to take O-level Higher Chinese (" gao hua") paper, in Year 4. Even though IP students need not take any O-level Standard Chinese ("bu-hua") in Year 3 whatsoever, but If the IP students want (prefer) to take, are they allowed to, inside IP schools ? I am curious. Why would IP s...

Re: 2020 P1 Registration Exercise for 2021 In-take

U mean they are allowed to go beyond MOE’s recommended class size of 30? I really pity the teacher, need to manage so many young kids who may not be sufficiently socio-emotionally developed yet. If 30 is the recommended class size, then it is the recommended class size, like a recommended retail pr...

Re: All about Transferring to Other Primary Schools

I may not be in sync..didn't read and understand the whole thing..but from what I gathered going back to P1 after 2nd or 3rd year studying in another country can be bit difficult for some kids.. there is this pull out classes/remedial classes or maybe other terms used to assist weaker kids/subjects...

Re: All about Transferring to Other Primary Schools

The admin officer shut me up by saying that other schools would asked the same of us. She proclaimed that I’m not the only returning overseas Singaporeans. She seems to be taking this rather personally, in my opinion :rant: Does the admin officer have the authority to decide which level she joins? ...
