Re: drop HCL in primary school but choose SAP sec

Because thread starter has his mind set on sending his child to SAP school, continuing with HCL all the way is the wise thing to do. SAP secondary schools will set up barriers for students without HCL in Psle. You may see the other school threads to know how schools are trying ways and means to dis...

Increase of 3 points in overall t-score makes the child eligible to more schools compared to 3 points bonus from HCL which only can be used in ...

They are scared of not enough distinctions in psle. SAP secondary schools may not let students without Psle Hcl to take the subject. If y...
