Re: Secondary 2 Streaming - Normal Technical

[/quote] Assuming D&T is available, he should take that. Otherwise, music. Not wanting to sound rude, it really doesn’t matter what he takes as the subject overall impact is minimal. If he remains in NT, his academic pathway is limited and relatively fixed. Therefore, he should consider a subject wh...

Re: Secondary 1 Normal Tech

Hi iluvjr2,

for those in NT, they will be given a chance to take NA subject based on PSLE results. Like my son, he took English & Science in Jan 2018 and after June, he took up Math for NA too. I cannot remember was it during the orientation day.
