My child is offering Asian Languages (AsL: Arabic, Burmese and Thai) or Foreign Languages (FL: French, German and Japanese) in lieu of an official MTL since Primary School. What are my follow-up actions in Secondary School?
Starting from 2019, parents are no longer required to submit a re-application for Secondary 1 students who have obtained approval at the primary level to offer AsL/FL.
Your child is required to attend private lessons regularly and eventually take the AsL/FL paper at the GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations. Your child is required to provide documentation (e.g. marked assignment, result slip, payment receipt) to the school to show that they are learning AsL/FL regularly.
Students are required to take the AsL/FL papers at the GCE O Level. To fulfil the minimum MTL requirement for admission into a junior college or centralised institute, your child will have to attain the minimum AsL/FL grade of D7 or above at GCE O Level.
