Have you called or emailed MOE to find out whether it is possible to amend your submission? Even if deadline already closed, there should still be some way.


Will MOE entertain my call or my e-mail? If it's possible I will take the chance and of course amend my submission!! I'll try to call MOE. Thanks for the advise!!! :wink:

How do we 'discover' their talent, short of trying different types of sport, musical instrument etc. Care to share if there are ways to assess if the kid has hidden talent?


Every child has hidden talent... That's why it is said 'Each child is different' .. some discover early ... some not so early. I have two girls... younger just passed PLSE with clear results in favor of languages. Elder yet to decide what to do at University..... No clear indication.. so much so that whether to take engineering or Huminity route is not clear yet.

As a parent, we support & not be 'Kenchong' . If they pursue what interests them, life will be less of struggle. Just wait... it will be known one fine day :roll:

Thanks for the advice ... seems like it is merit measured + CCA(the value of the student to the school)

Not true. Most of students below the COP and making it to the schools are doing very well. It all depends on your attitude.

My kids like singing when they are young, so they try out some music lessons, and I brought them to sports halls, they join us for some exercice, it is easy !

They will ask for more if they like it. The most important thing is do not quit easily.

Dear all members,

First, sorry if I do not post in wrong subforum because I am newbie here.

Second, let's me tell my story:
- I am final year nus student looking for information about appealing for secondary school. My younger brother was awarded Singapore government merit award. However, he is randomly allocated to Tanglin secondary school. From information I gathered, it seems that Tanglin is not so good. In my opinion, the study environment is the main factor for a good student so I want to ask if is there anyway to appeal for higher ranking school? If anyone experiences or have information for this case, please advice me.

Thank you very much :)
Henry.

What is Singapore government merit award? Are you referring to Edusave Merit Bursay? How did he ended being posted to Tanglin? The posting goes by merit and by your own choice of school before the posting.

yes. Basically, it's Asean scholarship for vietnamese students. My brother got into interview round after pass the exam but failed the scholarship. Top 20 students get scholarship. Next 20 students will get merit award to be allowed to study in singapore and pay the fee as singaporean students.

With this award, you are able to declare the residential area and the MOE will allocate you... I regretted that I didn't choose the area carefully.

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. :celebrate:
