there are already processes in place for dealing with candidates who are ill
during the national examinations. The same procedure will be activated for
students who are unable to take the examinations due to haze-related illnesses.
Every primary and
secondary school has in place a set of haze management plans and is ready to
take the appropriate management measures as required. As part of MOE’s haze
management measures, all schools are already equipped with air purifiers and
sufficient enclosed spaces to cater to all students. SEAB’s haze management
measures for national examinations are aligned with MOE’s haze management plans
for schools. Schools have already been briefed and are prepared to carry out
these measures when necessary. For national examinations, all schools have
enclosed spaces for all candidates to take their papers in. Air purifiers will
also be provided so that the examinations will not need to be disrupted, should
haze conditions worsen drastically during the period of the examination.
