With our school system being highly intolerant of failure, this is a safe pl...

Two other curves to share: https://i.postimg.cc/zfZJ7NQX/Screenshot-2018-11-29-at-1-07-19-PM.png...

Amongst all the SAP secondary schools so far in Sg, which is the SAP school, that has the lowest Cut-off-point ? It is ... Maris Stella (MS) And what is Maris Stella Cut-off-point ? Around 235 or 236 ? This means that, if students can enter MS (SAP) at 236, one can interpret that the Top 30 percent...

Re: 2018 PSLE Discussions & Strategies (Born in 2006)

So 37,672 students sat for the PSLE this year(number taken from ST). If 260 represents the top 3%, that means 1,130 students (rounded down the decimal for convenience) scored at least 260. Just for convenience, lets make some assumptions: 1) the same number of boys and girls in the top 3%, i.e. 565...

Re: 2018 PSLE Discussions & Strategies (Born in 2006)

Assume Boy Boy’s Chinese is his weakest subject, Under current PSLE tscore: 3A* + Chinese A, still can go RI/HCI Under AL Banding: 3AL1 + Chinese AL 2 = 5 pointers Either kena cut-off by 4 pointers or have to go balloting. I think 5-pointer should still be safe for RI cos that's high 250-ish to 260...
