Presidential Election 2023 – Changes to Teachers' Day Holiday and GCE 'N' Level Exams

Published Date: 11 August 2023 03:15 PM

News Press Releases

In view of the Writ of Election for Presidential Election 2023, MOE and the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) will make the following adjustments:

  1. Change of Teachers' Day 2023 school holiday previously scheduled on Friday, 1 September to Monday, 11 September 2023; and
  2. Changes in date for GCE 'N' level examinations that had been scheduled on Monday, 11 September 2023

Teachers' Day 2023

2 To recognise the contributions and dedication of our teachers, MOE typically celebrates Teachers' Day on the last Friday of Term 3 before the one-week September school holiday.

3 As Polling Day for Presidential Election 2023 will fall on Friday, 1 September 2023 if there is a contest, MOE will move this year's Teachers' Day holiday to Monday, 11 September 2023, i.e. the first Monday after the one-week September school holidays. This is to provide certainty for schools and students in making their plans. Monday, 11 September 2023 will now be designated a School Holiday.

GCE 'N' Level Examinations – Rescheduling of 11 September Papers to 12 and 20 September

4 GCE 'N' level papers that had been scheduled to take place on Monday, 11 September 2023 will now be rescheduled to Tuesday, 12 and Wednesday, 20 September. This is to provide certainty for candidates preparing for their examinations.

5 Our schools and SEAB will reach out to inform all affected examination candidates. Details of the re-scheduled papers can be found at Annex.
