subject is different from the other papers in that it includes a Mid-year Examination for written papers, usually taken on the first Monday of the June School Holiday. The Oral and Listening Comprehension papers are usually taken in July, and the result for this Chinese subject is released in August.
The candidate, however, can opt to re-take the paper in October/ November along with the other papers that the candidate has registered for though an additional fee is payable. The November re-assessment only covers the written examinations; no re-assessment is available for the Oral and Listening Comprehension component of the examination.
The best result of the two assessments is reflected in the result slip that will be released in January the following year.
