If MTL is not included in UAS computation, and the requirements only pass MTL. Is there any disadvantages for university admission for students taking Chinese B compare to Normal Chinese?

Art and EBS come with prerequisite. Does he meet the requirement?
D&T and EBS would probably be the most useful / helpful.

For my overall score,

Eng: 60
Math: 83.8
Sci: 72.3
MT: 64.435
Geog: 72
Hist: 67
Lit: 67.4
In my school, there is only double science and double humanities and triple science and one humanities
Is it possible for me to get triple science?
For humanities, should I take Geography or Literature? I am more interested in literature but my geography has better grades? Thanks!

Base on this website: https://www.seab.gov.sg/home/examinatio ... candidates

Art Syllabus T #
Design and Technology Syllabus T #

# To be examined for the last time in 2019

Not sure will these 2 subjects be gone...

Assuming D&T is available, he should take that. Otherwise, music.

Not wanting to sound rude, it really doesn’t matter what he takes as the subject overall impact is minimal. If he remains in NT, his academic pathway is limited and relatively fixed. Therefore, he should consider a subject where it may be useful for ITE - hence, EBS or D&T.

I'm okay, open for discussion since i posted it out.
Another problem is should he stick on SBB in Sec 3? He is in NT but taking English, Math & Science for NA stream.

Yes, he absolutely should do the normal N for English, Math and Science if possible.

For ITE admission, there are bonus points when NA scores are being considered for the course posting. You can refer to their admission booklet page 17:

Applicants with GCE ‘N (Academic)’ level grades of 1 to 5 for pre- requisite subjects (e.g. Mathematics, English and Science) for the courses applied for - 2 points for each pre-requisite subject, up to a maximum of 4 points for the course applied.

As long as he can score a pass in those subjects, he will get a better chance of securing a choice course in ITE in future.
