Foreign Language as a Third Language To be eligible to apply to study a Foreign Language as a Third Language, applicants must satisfy all three criteria: Students must be ranked in the top 10% of their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) cohort. They must be a Singapore Citizen (SC) or Singapore Permanent Resident (SPR), or the child of a SC/SPR. They must have offered a Mother Tongue Language at the PSLE. For students interested in Japanese, their Mother Tongue Language must be Higher Chinese/Chinese, as the standard written form of Japanese uses "Kanji" or Chinese characters. There are limited vacancies available at the Language Centers. In the event that the number of applicants exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be selected by merit based on their PSLE results. Asian Language (CSP/MSP/Bahasa Indonesia/Arabic ) as a Third Language Academic criteria: To apply for an Asian Language course, students must have gained admission to the Express or Normal (Academic) course. Nationality criteria: For Arabic/Indonesian, students must be a Singapore citizen or Singapore permanent resident, or the child of a SC/SPR. Prior language knowledge criteria: For Malay (Special Programme) and Indonesian, students are not eligible to apply if they have offered Malay / Higher Malay at PSLE (or equivalent). For Chinese (Special Programme), students are not eligible to apply if they have offered Chinese / Higher Chinese at PSLE (or equivalent).
