No A1? Students #forced to take #MotherTongue #exam again

An unwise move by the school. It will put more stress on the students. Grade is nothing. I will go for reputation rather than grade.

Honestly, I failed my mother tongue but at least I can understand and speak Chinese excluding writing and hey, I still managed to get into a course in a polytechnic and I enjoyed the course I'm currently in. Although I'm a Chinese but I don't really speak my mother tongue language. I preferred English haha.
