Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

If you are eligible to take HMT in secondary school, you would already have received the letter from MOE. For that, you'd need to be within top 10% or so, I think. or maybe top 15-20% - not quite sure, but i know definitely top10% will be offered to do Higher mother tongue even if they only got an A in psle and never did HMT at PSLE.

When you received your results slip, it did indicate whether you are eligible for HMT, go and check it out.
If you want to appeal for HMT, usually the secondary schools will look at your term 1 or SA1 MT result and for some schools, they'll wait till your SA2 results.

If you got an "A", you'll need to be TOP 10% of the cohort to be automatically offered HMT.
Yes, the pupil can obtain 2 points deduction if gotten a pass in HMT in "O" level.

if depends on the school u are in. some schools allow the students to switch to higher chinese after SA1 or after Sec 1. u have to speak to your chn teacher abt it. of course u have to work hard to prove that u have the capability to study the subject.

all the best.

That's right, it depends on the school itself. When school reopens, speaks to your MT teacher.
Meanwhile, U can work to improve on your MT during the school holidays. Of course, U must show your passion and your CL results speak louder than anything.

Hi Zoey28498
Got information from MOE Web....
Pupils who offer Mother Tongue Language (MTL)(i.e. Chinese/ Malay/ Tamil) or HMTL (i.e. Higher Chinese/ Higher Malay/ Higher Tamil) at the PSLE and

are ranked among the top 10% of the PSLE; or
are in the top 11% - 30% band who meet the language criteria (i.e. an A* grade in the MTL or at least a Merit in the HMTL)
may opt to study HMTL at secondary schools. They may offer English Language and HMTL in the GCE ‘O’ Level Examination at the end of Secondary Four.
