Secondary 1 Registration Exercise Subject-Based Banding (SBB) Online Briefing for Parents

SBB - Questions and Answers (Q&A) 23 December 2021



Question

Answer

What is the eligibility criteria for SBB?

Students posted to the N(A) or N(T) course are eligible to take some subjects (English Language, Mathematics, Science and Mother Tongue Languages) at more demanding level starting from Secondary 1 if they have performed well in these subjects at the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE):

       Students posted to the N(A) or N(T) course who scored AL 5 or better for a PSLE Standard subject can take the subject at the Express level.

       Students posted to the N(T) course who scored at least AL 6 for a PSLE Standard subject or A in a PSLE Foundation subject can take it at N(A) level.

       There is a cap to maximum 3 SBB subjects to be offered to a student.

If I opt for a yes in the SBB for example for English, in the book list do I purchase the NA books?

If your child is in the NT course and is offered SBB N(A) English in year 2022, you will need to purchase the N(A) English books instead of the N(T) English books.

For N(A) students taking Express Mathematics, will my child be disadvantaged in terms of marks calculations for promotion or for laterally transfer into Express course in Secondary 2?

As marks will be converted following MOE guidelines, students taking SBB subjects will not be disadvantaged in the calculation of marks for progression and lateral transfer.

If my child does not opt for SBB now, will he be offered if he is in Sec 2?

Yes, if he meets the eligibility criteria at the end of Secondary 1.

If my child passes SBB every year, will he be able to take the subject at O level in Sec 4?

At the Upper Secondary level, Subject-Based Banding (SBB) is known as Out-of-Stream (OOS). When students take OOS subjects, at the end of Secondary 4, they will sit for the O-levels or N(A) level examinations for the OOS subjects they are taking.

What is the criteria for students to transfer from NA to Express?

For a student to be laterally transferred from Normal Academic to Express course the student needs to achieve an overall percentage of 70% or more.

Is there a quota for students promoted to Express course? Is this also applicable for a Sec 2 and 3 student who achieved a 70% mark to get promoted from Normal (academic) to Express course?

There is no quota on the number of students getting promoted to Express or Normal (Academic).

Students who meet the criteria will be given an offer to laterally transfer to Express/Normal (Academic). Students should then make a considered decision based on their aspirations and holistic strengths, bearing in mind the progression pathways that are available to each specific course.


Secondary 1 Higher Mother  Tongue (Q&A) 23 December 2021


Question

Answer

How many Higher Chinese classes does Hai Sing Catholic School offer?

The number of classes depends on the number of eligible students being offered HCL. 

What is the percentage of students taking Chinese versus Higher Chinese in Hai Sing Catholic School?

The percentage varies from year to year, depending on students' choices and strengths. Students also come on board at later insertion points. 

If my child takes Higher Chinese, does she/he need to buy Express Chinese books?

 

As students will only be offered Higher Chinese, your child does not need to buy the Express Chinese books.

Will students taking Higher Chinese have to leave the classroom for classes separately during Chinese lessons if they are not grouped in the same form class?

Yes. Students taking Higher Chinese will report to a separate venue in the school for the lessons during Mother Tongue periods.

Must Higher Chinese be included in the computation of L1R5 to be awarded the 2 bonus points in the application for Junior College admission?

No, Higher Chinese need not be included in the computation of L1R5 for Junior College admission to be awarded the 2 bonus points.
