English Language Assessment
A reasonable proficiency in English is required. Heritage has adopted the widely acceptable and detailed World-class Instructional Design and Assessment Model (WIDA) which assesses the learner’s specific skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking.
Students will be assessed to determine their language comprehension and proficiency level if English is not their first language. The minimum entry score at WIDA entry test is not less than 3 in Speaking & Listening and in Reading, and not less than 2.5 in Writing for learners who have learnt English previously.
Students who come from a different language background with no English will not be denied admission and will receive language development support through the Intensive English Unit until their proficiency level will meet the expectations of the programme. Such learners will take a placement test in Mathematics only.
 
English-Only Pathway
The English-only pathway learners follow the Cambridge Primary and IPC, Cambridge Lower Secondary, Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced curriculum. These learners will take the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint and Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint,  IGCSE and Cambridge Advanced exams, which are mandatory. The requirements for the English-only pathway are as follows:

  • Parents waive their child’s participation in the national exams in Class 4, Class 9 and BAC in Class 12 (NOTE: this waiver is irreversible)
