Re: DSA 2018

My rough guide to have a shot at IP is that the child should be around top 20% in the school so he should roughly be in the best class and preferably in the top half. What 'best class'? All mixed ability classes as per MOE's prodding leh. :wink: Can use Edusave Merit Bursary as a rough gauge instea...

Re: DSA 2018

For whichever schools to override MOE’s requirements, by placing an additional condition, IMO that is not being fair or sticking to the purpose of DSA. If the schools know that they kids will not survive the academic rigor, then they should simply *not* offer those kids during the screening and int...

Re: DSA 2018

Last year, a friend’s DS did obtain a CO from RI when he DSA through sports. Criteria was he needs to obtain T score of 23x at PSLE. Heard similar story for DSA sports to RGS the year before last, also T score must be 23x. The girl didn’t make the cut in the end. This is contrary to past years' inf...

Re: Primary Science Olympiad

Comparing the Raffles Science Olympaid (RSO) and the Singapore Primary Science Olympaid (SPSO) by NUSH, is the latter less difficult? The RSO tested on many secondary school topics on chemistry and physics which are quite alien to primary school kids unless they actively read up and absorb on these...

English 200 Chinese 200 Maths 100 Science 100 Total: 600 Keep seeing above info circulated in Facebook these few days, but I always thought ...

Re: NUS High School Of Mathematics And Science [*IP]

Like to ask how CCA selection in NUSH works? How many choices are you given? Is it very competitive to get into certain CCAs? there are many CCA to choose from. But like most, if not, all schools, there are some CCA that are super popular. Due to resource constraints, some CCA has no choice but be ...
