If we want to apply for a school that does not offer DSA and primarily takes in only their feeder kids, do we appeal when PSLE results are released? Or should we put that school as option 1 in school choices?
We're leaving for vacation on the 26th Nov morning. We hope to get everything done before we leave. So would appreciate any insights anyone may have.
that means you are going by the standard S1 posting route
anyway no need to discuss about DSA anymore because the DSA season is over for this year.
hence, you should put the school of choice as first choice...you can do that via internet as result will be out on 25 Nov thursday
S1 posting result will be out on 22 Dec and be prepared to lodge an appeal letter with the school of choice immediately, once the posting result is out on the internet and IF you did not get in
first choice should be your ideal school of choice
second choice should be your NEXT choice of school - if you don't mind too much to stay for 4 years in case appeal not successful.
for example : your ideal school A may need 245 to get in, but your child only got 230
hence first choice put school A, and second choice put in the school with around COP of 230, based on your normal selection criteria (culture, distance, etc)
