Getting exempted from Chinese in Secondary 1 in Singapore can be difficult, as it requires approval from the Ministry of Education (MOE). The process typically involves taking a language proficiency test and submitting supporting documents, such as medical reports or letters from the student's previous school.
To qualify for exemption, a student must demonstrate a significant and permanent learning disability that affects their ability to learn Chinese, or a medical condition that makes it difficult or impossible to study the language. Students who have received exemptions in primary school may also be considered for exemption in secondary school.
It is important to note that exemption from Chinese does not mean that the student will have one less subject to study. Instead, they will typically be required to take another language subject, such as Malay or Tamil.
The process of getting exempted from Chinese can be complicated and may require the assistance of a qualified educational psychologist or specialist. It is recommended that parents and students speak with their school's guidance counselor or language department for more information on the process and requirements.
