10Subject-Based Banding (SBB) Previous System (before 2008)Students who did not perform well in Primary 4 Examinations- Streamed into EM3 classes in Primary 5 and 6- Took all subjects at the foundation level- Might take Mother Tongue (MT) atthe standard level if they werestrong in MT
11Subject-Based Banding (SBB) Why introduce Subject-Based Banding?To recognise the different abilities of students- Provide more flexibility in subject combinations for students with strengths and abilities that vary across subjectsRemoval of Merged and EM3streams in Primary 5 and 6
12Subject-Based Banding (SBB) What Subject-Based Banding means to your childGreater flexibility in subject combinationsYour child has the choice to take a combination of standard and foundation subjects, depending on his strengths
13Subject-Based Banding (SBB) Rationale and IntentProviding our weaker pupils a differentiated curriculum that would best maximise their potential.These pupils may have particular strengths, and we should develop them as much as possible by offering them specificsubjects at a higher (standard)level of study.
14Subject-Based Banding (SBB) Standard vs. Foundation SubjectFoundation subjects put focus on mastery of core content and skills.These are pitched at a lower level as compared to the corresponding standard subject.
15Subject-Based Banding (SBB) What are the choices available?If your child (for P4 exam)Your child may be recommended to takePasses all 4 subjects and performs very well in MTL4 standard subjects + Higher Mother Tongue LanguagePasses 3 or 4 subjects4 standard subjectsPasses 2 subjects or less3 standard subjects + 1 other foundation subject; or2 standard subjects + 2 other foundation subjects; or1 standard subject + 3 other foundation subjects; or4 foundation subjects
