All music students take an 8-subject combination in Chung Cheng. Higher Music is offered to students who are able to perform well and cope with their academic load. To offer Higher Music, students will need to offer an Additional study – tasks that are over and above what is required in the subject O level Music. These tasks may include an essay, composition tasks or performing.

At the end of the Sec 3 year, students will decide in consultation with music teachers and parents regarding the decision to take Music or Higher Music at the O level examination.

In the calculation of the L1R5 score in the O level examination, students should note that Higher Music can be considered in lieu of a Humanities subject. Music is considered under the calculation for R4 or R5. Detailed information on aggregate computation can be found in the JAE booklet at the MOE website.
