My child was exempted from the MTL exam at PSLE. Does he/she still need to study a MTL at Secondary School?If your child was exempted from taking the MTL exam at PSLE because he/she has applied to study a foreign language, your child will still need to register for a foreign language as a MTL-in-lieu at Secondary School. Please complete Form 5-FL and submit it, together with all supporting documents, to Mr Dennis Lim, HOD MTL, for processing. Without a MTL or MTL-in-lieu, your child will not be able to register for the National Exams at the end of Secondary School education. If your child was granted exemption because he/she fulfilled a condition stated in Question 2 (see below), it would be clearly stated on the official letter of exemption (which your child received in Primary School) that your child will no longer need to reapply for exemption at Secondary School. In such a case, your child will not be required to sit for the MTL exam at ‘N’ or ‘O’ level.
I would like to apply for permanent MTL exemption for my child. How can I go about doing it?Under the bilingual policy, all students must study two languages: English Language and a Mother Tongue Language. Students will only be considered for exemption if they meet any of the following criteria:
1) Student only joined the Singapore education system mid-stream (e.g. an international student who joined a Singapore school only at Primary 5), or
2) Student has certain special needs or medical conditions (e.g. autism, severe dyslexia)
If a student wants to apply for exemption and meets at least one of the above criteria, he or she could fill up Form 2-EXPT and return to Mr Dennis Lim, HOD MTL, with all supporting documents, for submission to MOE. My child is studying a NTIL (Non-Tamil Indian Language) in Primary School.
