Explanations:

  1. For those taking French at G9, French can be chosen as an elective.
     
  2. Mathematics:
    Students taking Stream E or F can only choose Mathematics (Compulsory Part) or Mathematics plus Extended Module 1;
    Students who have failed in Mathematics in G9 (based on whole year results) can only take General Mathematics (Compulsory Part) and those who ranked in the lower half in Mathematics in G9 (based on whole year results) may be rejected from taking extended module.

    Please note that starting from 2013-14, lessons of extended modules start in the second term of G10.
    G10 students may not be permitted to take Extended Module if their mathematics (Compulsory Part) performance in the Mid-year exam is not satisfactory.

    1. Economics; 2. Visual Arts; 3. ICT; 4. Design & Applied Technology; 5. Physical Education (PEED); 6. BAFS; 7. Geography; 8. Biology; 9. RS; 10. French 11. Music
     
  4. The maximum class size for the third elective or X subject in streams B, C, D, E and F is 24 and the minimum class size is 5. 
    “Biology in X” and “Biology in B stream” belong to the same class.
