Exemption from Mother Tongue Languages
1. If your child has been earlier exempted from Mother Tongue Languages in primary school, the exemption will still be valid in secondary school.
2. If your child did not take Mother Tongue during PSLE, it does not automatically mean that he or she is exempted from Mother Tongue Languages.
Should your child not take Mother Tongue in secondary school, he
or she will not be eligible to apply for entry into a junior college at the end
of his or her O Level examinations.
