Can the school insist the student to take up at least one H3 ? Any JC or IP school is doing this at the moment ? As far as I know, no. In fact, the school will encourage you to drop your H3 if you can't take the workload. Will the schools forcefully take away the h3 if the student doesn't improve? ...

I am not so sure if A.Maths is a must for JC. My understanding is that students can always take H1 Maths in JC, if they have not taken A.Maths at O-Levels. However, the student may subsequently be limited in his choices for uni, especially engineering courses. A Maths is often a must for popular co...
