If we look at the top score thread, seems like top score is only 270+.

Only appeal after the secondary school postings are out ?
Or can start appealing now ?

DS2 got 244+1
Just made the cut off for Nan Hua High based on last year's results.

What time is the Nan Hua High open house tomorrow ?


You don't even know whether your child get into the school you are going to select. So, you cannot appeal. Wait for the result of the secondary school posting first.


I think higher chance if you put the school as your first choice.

But there is still unresolved issue regarding school allocation. For example if Student A gets 255 and Student B gets 253+2. Who will get in first? Does MOE consider Raw Score first before taking in the Bonus points??

Also, I want to caution parents when selecting secondary schools. In the event your child cannot get into the First Choice school for example, and then decided to appeal. The order of school selection makes a difference although this is not something they will publicly tell you. When submitting your appeal form, some schools ask for your order of school selection. In the past, I have heard from a parent that the school actually asked "Why didn't you put my school as first choice?". On another occasion, I heard from a friend whose friend is a Primary School principal. She warned her to be careful when making the secondary school selection and the order in which she applied for the secondary school.


The school allocation is based on merit, basically in the MOE systems all PSLE student is rank in order highest to lowest, there is decimal points. Also the HMT can only be used for applying to SAP secondary school.

I didn't say that school allocation in not based on merit. But when it comes to appeal cases, as I mentioned, you have to be careful with your choices in the very first instance when you select the secondary schools.
