I'm considering letting my Sec 3 son take up CL "B" syllabus as he is absolutely miserable studying it and is almost illiterate in MT, in spite of the many years of studying MT and endless money spent on tuition. Even if he continues in MTL, he will not be using it for his L1R5. He is doing relatively well in all his other English-based subjects. I am looking at this purely from the standpoint of meeting MOE's JAE criteria of a "Merit or Pass in CL "B") for entry into a JC. My son does not want to go to Poly. I also understand from NUS admissions website that he also only needs a Merit or Pass in CLB to get in.
Would greatly appreciate some veteran parents' advice on this.
