I have spoken to the admin staff at NJC last Thur and was told the appeal process starts only on 23 Dec in NJC. Maybe you can approach them and see if they have changed their minds.
just to share my experienec.. my son did not do well last year, the sec sch we selected cut-off points went up 3 points.
so we appeal... the school respond 'they are full' vancancy will depend on whether anyone choose to leave the sch. This is what i have done
1) Ask MP to write appeal letter to the principle.
2) Write another personal appeal letter to sch.
3) Call and talk to the person in charge
4) Call MOE to check on what the sch said is correct or not. (Its confirm, the sch corhort is set by MOE, the sch cannot increase the class size)
But i heard IP program sch is different...not too sure abt that.
So we waited, end result..no one left the sch. so we have to settled for 2nd choice. Buy uniform, text etc last min. Told my son to work harder in sec 1. During sec 1 he scored top 10% of the whole cohort in tat sch and we successfully transfer him to another sec. That is another painful exercise. Luck sometimes have to play a part.
