Re: Compare RGS vs NYGH

correct. Compare these two IP Girls' schools : Nanyang Girls' High is a much, safer IP school to go to, due to existence of an O-level track to fall back upon, during emergency crisis. At RGS, if unable to meet promotion criteria up into Year 5 (RI), can repeat one year or else exit. Perhaps, if yo...

Re: Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) [*IP]

Hi,

Would like to know what is the time commitment for CCA? I understand they have to take 2 CCA. Is it twice a week or once a week for each CCA and how long is each session for UG, clubs, society etc?

Re: Rosyth

They used to stream from P3 few years back, but they stopped. Similar to most schools, streaming start in P4 now. The top 2 classes used to be known ie same every year but few years back they made it harder to know which are the top 2 classes ie you have to ask the parents in that level if you want ...

Re: DSA 2017

Hi, I'm 1st time applying DSA for my boy this year. Would like to check : 1) Let's say we applied for 3 schools, after the results are announced & all 3 got either CO/WL, must we indicate our preference for all the 3 schools or can we just select 2 schools? 2) If eg DS put sch A as 1st choice but i...

Re: DSA 2017

As i am reading the older DSA thread, I think the subject domain has always been there. The changes in the last 2 yrs were the removal of GEP domain and the General acad domain, I think.

Re: DSA 2017

From the RGS website, my understanding of DSA academic is to just look at one subject the student is good at right? Not overall 4 subjects, I think. :? :? From RGS website for DSA Academic: DSA ACADEMIC Applicant must be able to demonstrate interest and talent beyond the abilities of students in th...

Re: All About Choosing and Buying Pianos

Hi, I would like advice on the following. I have been going around looking at used pianos and there are 20 odd yrs pianos that are imported from Japan that look like brand new, as though you bought it new from Yamaha. They keys, hammers, strings etc that look totally white or unused, no sign of dust...
