Depending on your child's Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results, he will be placed in the Express Course (including the Integrated Programme in some schools), the Normal (Academic) Course or the Normal (Technical) Course. While your child may initially be placed in a particular course, based on his ability to cope with the learning pace and style, there are opportunities for him to make a lateral transfer midstream to a more appropriate course – one that is better able to bring out the best in him.
