Question

To ask the Minister for Education for each year in the past five years, what is the number of students entering the (i) Normal (Technical) (ii) Normal (Academic) and (iii) Express streams respectively.

Response

1. Over the last five years, about 5,000 students enter the Normal (Technical) course, 10,000 students enter the Normal (Academic) course and 25,500 students enter the Express course each year. The proportion of students entering each course varies slightly each year depending on student performance at the PSLE as well as choice of course made by the students who are eligible for both courses e.g. Express/Normal (Academic).
