You are welcome. There are classes for adult learners to take their secondary education too.

The Eng O level course offered in ITE is of good standard. Students MUST complete homework assigned faithfully and attend every class in order to maximise learning and pass O level English.

Online Registration
The 2013 Singapore-Cambridge GCE N(T)-, N(A)-, O- and A-Level registration period is 16 calendar days (including Sunday), starting on 11 March 2013 until 11:59 pm on 26 March 2013.

However, for private candidates who have missed the registration period from 11 March to 26 March 2013, they can still register online during the extended registration period from Monday, 1 April 2013 to Tuesday, 30 April 2013 (11:59 pm). Private candidates who register during the extended registration period, i.e. 1 April to 30 April 2013, can only make the payment at any SingPost office or S.A.M between 18 May and 27 May 2013. If payment is not made by the stipulated deadline under each registration period, the candidate’s registration will be treated as incomplete and will be deemed null and void. Registration for Mid Year subjects would not be allowed after 26 March 2013.

Private candidates who registered between 11 March 2013 and 26 March 2013 and wish to make amendment to their subjects must still proceed to make their payment between 30 March and 8 April 2013. Once the payment is made, they will be able to make amendments to their subject entries online between 15 April and 14 May 2013. An amendment fee of S$20.00 (in addition to the new subject fee) will be charged for each amendment request made after the registration period, i.e. 26 March 2013 onwards.

Registration Period Extended Registration Period Amendment Period
11 March to 26 March 2013 1 April to 30 April 2013 15 April to 14 May 2013
Payment Period 30 March to 8 April 2013 18 May to 27 May 2013 18 May to 27 May 2013
Please note that SEAB will not accept any late registration and amendment request made after 30 April 2013 for candidates taking GCE N(T)- and N(A)-Level.

Yes, you qualified because you fail your O level English once. So u can go register for the course with ITE. Pls take note that you should go down personally to ITE in the evenings, not the daytime one, to seek further advice. Do not try calling. It's better to go down in the evening. Check out the schedule timing and you will know the evening opening hours. Bring along your O level result slip, original IC and payment.
