how about opting for a built-in switch...switch to the left for boy and to the right for girl....save the trouble of having to fly to bangkok so frequently and also to save cost...

Make sure it is governed by the lemon law and you are allowed to refund in case the switches malfunction and you are stuck in between.

so, given that the bell curve is slimmer and number of classes is smaller, which direction is the COP going to move?

My opinion: it depends on which side of the curve the school is in. The bell curve is slimmer and taller. The COPs are attracted to the center line of the bell curve. The highest T-score has dropped but the lowest one has increased. The COP for schools in the lower half (190 to 220) will likely to increase while the other half (220-250) will likely to decrease. Those elite schools' COP (>250) will drop.

By how much? The number of express student increased from 63% to 66%. This increase is about 5%. 5% of 30 (220-190) is 1.5. So, I guess the COP will move by a mean of 1.5 points in each direction. The closer the COP is at the side, the higher the probability that it will move. For example, COP of 220 may not move but COP of 250 may dropped by 3.

What about smaller number of classes? The effect is neutralized by smaller number of P6s. This year, there are 8000 lesser P6s. Since there are around 170 secondary schools, if each school has one class reduced, the number of spaces removed will be 6800. So, no effect.

Just a quick analysis. For further discussion.

My dd scored 234. Now deciding whether to put Tanjong Katong Girls (TKGS-236) or Secondary (TKSS-234) as first choice. Based on the above analysis, TKGS will probably lowered by 1 to 235, which my girl will likely not be selected. TKSS is pretty safe.
