    After Submission FAQs

    For 2019 & 2020, we have sent updates on email and whatsapp.

    From 2021 onwards, we will keep all full updates for school on our website under the ‘For Schools’ tab here instead so that you may easily reference the FAQs and all updates in one central place/ in case other teachers may have similar questions, checking the FAQs will be more efficient for them than waiting for our replies. (We understand how busy teachers are!)

    Whenever there is an important announcement, we will send you an email to check. Otherwise, we will be periodically updating the FAQs for the benefit of all schools.

    Do check the FAQs first if you have questions (it will be more efficient for you). However, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need more help, we hope to add to the FAQs and benefit the other schools as well.
