SINGAPORE: O-Level and A-Level mother tongue oral examinations scheduled on Jul 10 will be moved to another day, as they would coincide with Polling Day in the coming General Election, said the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) on Friday (Jun 26).

Affected candidates will be given a new date between between Jul 8 and Jul 17, the original oral exam dates, said SEAB in a press release.

"Schools will communicate the revised oral examination schedule to their affected candidates on Jun 30, while SEAB will notify affected private candidates via email," it added.
