MOE: Updates to Precautionary Measures for Schools from 11 Oct 2021
In line with MOH’s updates to the national COVID-19 testing and isolation protocols, MOE will update the precautionary measures implemented in MKs, primary and secondary schools, and JCs/MI from 11 Oct.
- Students in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case will no longer be placed on Quarantine Order(QO); they will be issued a 7-day Health Risk Warning(HRW) by MOH.
- MOE will no longer issue Leave of Absence(LOA) and Approved Absence(AA) to all students and staff.
- Students currently under existing QO, LOA or AA can return to school for lessons if they are well and have a negative ART result on the day they go to school.
- Primary schools will require close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases in school to undergo regular ART self-testing while waiting for the issuance of an HRW. We seek your understanding that schools will no longer call parents to inform you that your child is a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case and will use electronic means (e.g. Parents Gateway or email) instead.
- See the Letter to Parents for details.
Updates to Arrangements for GCE-Level National Exams
- Candidates on HRW or Medical Leave (MC) will be allowed to sit for the national exams, including Science Practical, under specific conditions and SMMs.
- Inform your child’s school if your child has been placed on HRW or MC, and if your child plans to sit for the national exams.
- See the Press Release for details.
MOE will continue to monitor the situation and implement measures to keep our school environment safe. We urge all students and parents to exercise social responsibility.

27 September 2021
The Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) have put in place arrangements for the coming national examinations for those who may be affected by COVID-19.
Special Consideration (SC)
We understand that parents and students may be concerned about the impact on their child if they miss the national examinations due to COVID-19 reasons. We would like to assure you that candidates who miss any national examination paper(s) with valid reasons can apply for SC. SC is not a new practice. All SC applications are assessed on each case's merit, and we will ensure that the grades awarded are as accurate and fair as possible. You can approach your child's school for assistance with regards to the SC application.
Candidates on Quarantine Order (QO) who want to take the national examinations
While SC will be applied to cases with valid reasons, there may be some candidates who are on QO but still wish to take the national examinations. For this group of candidates, the Ministry of Health has approved a set of procedures for them to apply for leave from QO so that they can sit for their national examinations. This is an additional option made available to all national examination candidates this year. If your child is issued a QO, please inform your child's school immediately so that the school can work with you to make the necessary arrangements.
Please see attachments for details on the arrangements and updates to the arrangements for candidates on Approved Absence. MOE and SEAB will monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and provide updates if there are further changes.

2021 Updated Arrangements for the Year-End GCE N(A), N(T), O-Level and A-Level Written Examinations
The Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) have updated the national examination arrangements to include the use of Antigen Rapid Tests and Polymerase Chain Reaction Tests for affected students on Leave of Absence (LOA) or Approved Absence. This will enable as many students as possible to sit for their papers while keeping students and staff safe.
Similar to 2020 arrangements, candidates who are tested positive for COVID-19, placed on Quarantine Order (QO) or Stay-Home Notice will not be allowed to sit for the examinations.
To minimise the risk of transmissions and reduce the number of students placed on QO or LOA, MOE will implement a study break for the following graduating cohorts:
- GCE O-Level: 13 - 17 October
- GCE N(A)/N(T)-Level: 4 - 12 September and 1 - 3 October
- GCE A-Level: 3 - 7 November
During these periods, students are strongly encouraged to remain at home to revise for their examinations. Schools will remain open on weekdays for those who require additional support, including those whose home environments may not be conducive for learning.
Safe management measures (SMMs) will continue to be implemented in schools and examination venues, and during the study break to ensure the safe conduct of national examinations.
Please see the press release for more information on the updated arrangements. MOE and SEAB will monitor the situation and provide timely updates if there are further changes to this year's examination arrangements.

The Mid-Year Meet-the-Parents Session will be taking place on Wednesday, 4 August 2021, between 8.30am and 3.30pm. In accordance with safe management measures, Civics Tutors will be teleconferencing with parents instead of having face-to-face meetings.

For other parents/guardians who may wish to speak with the Civics Tutor, the sign up portal would be accessible from 2 August, 8.30am to 3 August, 2pm. We seek your understanding if there are no more slots available after the first round of registration.
You may want to consider contacting your child's/ward's tutor via email to schedule a phone conversation on another day instead.
