Yes, I received this 2 days ago.
Just thinking of the combination makes me stressed.
Hoping and wishing for that MT exemption to come SOON...so that I have one big headache lesser.

After having Higher/Standard Chinese, now there is Standard/Foundation for English, Maths and Science. I suppose it isn't a bad thing. If you wanna aim high, you go for the standard, and if you are always falling behind and finding it difficult to make the mark, you go for the foundation, which at least provides you with minimum education level required in day-to-day living.

This has been implemented long time ago. Is there any concern for you now?

I guess because there are always parents of students whohave just got to that age who need to have it explained.

To be fair, I know about this cos I have an older kid. This brochure would be handy for those whose 1st kid is going thru P4.
