Is oral now included in HMT O lvl exam?


Yup, the students will watch a video then give a verbal report based on the points raised in the video. Thereafter, there will be a discussion based on the topic in the video. Here's the link to the syllabus:

http://www.seab.gov.sg/content/syllabus ... 6_2016.pdf


Does the watch video and then give report also apply to non-HMT Chinese oral? My dd does not qualify to take HMT, so she is taking the normal Chinese ... She asked me to help her get some guide books for Sec 1 Chinese Oral, and I am totally lost. This is so new to me. :shrug:


Think it's slightly different format from HMT. There's a reading aloud segment PLUS a conversation segment based on a video clip. If you want more details, there's an oral guide book selling in popular for O lvl MT exams that might give you a better idea.

Are they selling at popular bookstore?

Think it will be difficult. Not graphic stimulus type. But I did get some for 实用文. New format for 2016. There is a few of them


Ya, apparently nope. Only one oral guide book for MT level. Hope publishers can come up guide books for HMT soon.

Hi! The exam dates are the same as Sec 4 pupils taking their O Levels. I'm not sure why you're not asking your sch's teachers since they should have access to the info but you can retrieve info from the seab website.
Refer to this link for the all the exam dates!

Thanks CatMoon and kchairenn. I have this link as well but the problem is there seems to be so many different Chinese! I am not sure do I look at Chinese 1160 or Chinese (revised) 1162?
The teacher has not replied me yet, probably due to sch hols.

For school candidates, they should be taking the 1160 exam.
1160 is the revised syllabus.
1162 is only for private candidates.
