Officially, it's at P5, ie after the P4 exam, your child will be recommended for HMT or MT. Some schools start their own "streaming" at P4. SAP schools will start introducing Higher Chinese to all students from P1.

I called Molin Tutorial Center to check on registration for P1 Chinese class. The staff asked me if my son will be taking Higher Chinese or Normal Chinese. I told her I don't know. She said should know it already. She said they have different class for Higher Chinese and Normal Chinese. I was like :? Thought the streaming only comes in at higher primary

How to do if a school is sap school?

Did the school inform you during orientation or you get to know it on the first day of school?
