Requirements to offer Higher Mother Tongue Languages (HMTL) at Sec 1

Xinmin Secondary School offers Higher Mother Tongue Language (HMTL) to eligible students.

At admission to Sec 1, all Express Malay Language students will offer Higher Malay Language while all Normal (Academic) Malay Language students will offer Malay Language at the Express level.

For Chinese Language students, if they are not given the option to offer Higher Chinese Language by MOE based on their good performance at the PSLE, the school will administer a diagnostic test before the start of the school year for interested students, and if they are found suitable, the school will give them the opportunity to offer HCL at the start of Sec 1. 

As the school does not offer Tamil and other Indian languages, students will have to take their Mother Tongue language lessons outside the school.

Admissions Procedures


All students are posted to the school via the MOE centralised posting exercise at Sec 1. Students who wish to seek a transfer to the school at Sec 1 after the posting results are released may appeal to the school for admission by submitting this form and other relevant documents stated on the form. All forms must be submitted in person to the General Office by 11:00am on 24 December (Thursday). As vacancies are limited, only successful candidates will be notified by the school.
