When in Poly, for those who did not offer HMT in "O" level - are they required to study Chinese in Poly? Don't know how things work in Poly. :?:

Thanks Central Control.
My boy scored 237, wants to go to SJI for its "moral character" building, but the COP proves too high to reach.
Is there any similar "character" school which we can try?
Thanks.

I noticed that MSH is within Mt Vernon area - the place for funeral. Can anyone share if the procession/mourning - can it be seen by students who are coming/leaving school?

How far will the school be from the new MRT?

Thanks everyone.
As the results not out yet, i can only guestimate around prob 220 - 240.
I checked the list. FuHua, Swiss Cottage seems within reach. Commonwealth too.
Comments on these schools are appreciated. And any sharing of other schools too are welcome.
Thanks.
