Re: RI’s ‘O’ level scores: only one in 10 qualified for JC.

While their sports records are great in the Nationals, I hope RI will seriously make the effort to ensure the boys do not lose out academically!!!!!!!!!!!!! Technically, none of them "lose out". Although most did not qualify for JC, none of them failed. All would have qualified for poly but probabl...

Re: Normal Academic (NA) course

In Zbear's nephew's case, wouldn't his selection into the CS Uni course be because he did very well in Poly (maybe the top 10%) and not really dependent on his O level results? O level results have no bearing on your university selection. Likely that Zbear nephew did well in a course that he liked ...

Re: Hotel Booking Websites

For big families travelling together, you may want to try airbnb apartments rather than book many hotel rooms individually.

There's now a special promotion - $56SGD off first booking for new airbnb customers. If interested, pls PM me for the referral code. No expiry date, no gimmicks.

Re: Normal Academic (NA) course

Hi, Not sure where to post this, so posting here since it concerns my DD who is in NA. DD has been posted to school A which is her second choice. She, for some reason, didn't like the school initially and wanted to appeal to School B which is her first choice. After the registration yesterday, she ...

Re: Normal Academic (NA) course

:sad: Yeah, i DON'T UNDERSTAND why some schools are pushing so hard for the NA kids in this direction. My girl's school kept talking about ITE, DPP and PFP all the time. It seems like the school (a convent school) is eager to get rid of the students after the N levels! Shouldn't the P and teachers ...

Re: PSLE 2015 - Sec Sch Posting for 2016 <See Pg 1 for COP l

I personally feel that it's not fair to those students who had choose to go into these seven school which will not Offer sec 1 in 2016. Especially it's their first choice. Either the moe Should announced before psle result is out or just make the classes smaller. Yes, agree that should announce fir...

Re: PSLE 2015 - Sec Sch Posting for 2016 <See Pg 1 for COP l

Strategic planning? A few points to ponder: (1) Between S1 option and S1 posting, it took the MOE 20 days. (2) Based on the post by one parent, she was told this morning that the school her son was posted to yesterday will not open Sec 1 in 2016. (3) the number of P6 students taking PSLE in 2015 ca...
