Question

To ask the Minister for Education whether the waiver of national examination fees is extended to those undertaking these national exams (i) for second and subsequent attempts and (ii) as private candidates.

Response

From 2015, MOE will waive the fees for the four national examinations, namely, the PSLE, GCE “N”, “O” and “A” level examinations for Singapore Citizen students in Government-funded schools. The waiver will apply as long as the student is still studying in a Government-funded school, including those who qualify to repeat their examinations as school candidates.

For Singapore Citizens taking the national examinations as private candidates, the waiver of fees will not apply.
