If students wish to take classes for subjects that are not offered at their enrolled STEP centre, they now have the option of taking classes at a STEP centre that offers those subjects. For example, if a primary school student wishes to take Tamil and it is not offered at the STEP centre they enrolled in, they may go to a STEP centre that offers Tamil and register accordingly. This allows for students to have a flexible learning schedule.
