SINGAPORE (Mar 8): The Ministry of Education (MOE) is removing streaming for secondary school by 2024.

In five years, students entering Secondary One will no longer be labelled as “Normal” or “Express” and their abilities will not be termed “academic” or “technical”. Instead, they will be able to take subjects at the level of difficulty suited to them — a level of individual customisation new to the Singapore education system.

Rather than parking students into streams that strictly define what subjects they take and the depth at which those subjects is studied, the new system allows students to take each subject at a level suited to their needs and abilities.
