This information is for parents with children who are on
- Leave of Absence (LOA)
- But not pending issuance of a QO
If your child is pending issuance of a QO, or has been placed on a QO, go here.
If you are unsure about the category your child is under, visit the MOE website for more information.
- Ensure the candidate takes an ART at the specified intervals till the LOA is rescinded.
- The candidate will be allowed to sit for the national exam if the ART result is negative and testing is done at the specified intervals.
What to expect
For these candidates on LOA, their self-swab ART would be administered at the schools on the day of their first paper after being placed on LOA.
As regular testing is required for this group, these candidates will take the ART at specified intervals until their LOA is rescinded.
On the day of the exam
Bring the candidate to school one hour before the start of the first paper for the school to administer an ART, which will take about 20-30 minutes.
