Can't recall whether the library has a collection... will ask the centre & get back to you. 3rd language at OLevels is manageable, no worries.

Hi sky,

Never mind, is ok. Had found out where to obtain past years' GCE O level 3rd foreign language papers, MOELC library inside should have a copy. Contain past year questions, but may not come with model answers / solutions (in foreign language). Since they don't come with model answers, means u got to do the questions yourself, & perhaps get a foreign language Teacher to help mark your script.

Thank you very much, sky. Much appreciated, yr kind help.

True. 3rd language at O level is ok, but the questions at A-level (Junior college) seems challenging. One really need to reach a certain proficiency level, before can take H1 or H2 (A-level) foreign language. Actually, if one can perservere, don't give up half-way through, learn all the way up to 4 years and eventually take GCE O-level, is already considered very good.


At MOELC premises (Bishan / Newton), learning a 3rd foreign language, is free of charge.

However, for NUS High students, learning foreign language at NUS premises, taught by the NUS foreign language lecturers over there, is not free. You need to pay them.

For NUS High students, coming down all the way, travelling from NUS High campus (Clementi) to MOELC ( Bishan or Newton), is too far, inconvenient. It is more convenient to take lessons from your nearby NUS premises, instead.

In some schools, 3rd Lang's GPA can replace another subject's GPA.
Depending on schools, the kids can choose whether to include 3rd Lang in the msg.
Yes, my girl's school[Cedar] can use to replace other weaker subjects, (5) & (6).
The 6 subjects are chosen from the following:
(1) Either English Language or Higher Mother Tongue
(2) Mathematics (Compulsory)
(3) Science
(4) One Humanities subject
(5) & (6) The best remaining 2 subjects
