Students who missed parts of the O-and A-level mother tongue language examinations last month because of the Covid-19 pandemic will be fairly assessed and not disadvantaged, the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) has said.
Some students missed the mid-year written examination because they had tested positive for Covid-19; or were placed on leave of absence, home quarantine order or stay-home notice; or were certified medically unfit.
A spokesman for the board told The Straits Times that special consideration can be applied to the affected candidates, provided that they sit the remaining oral and listening comprehension examinations scheduled this month.
