oh wow...

Primary School: I didn't plan which Primary School to target for until recently. Picked the school which I can avoid balloting and also easy on logistics for both myself/family and DD

Secondary School: Naturally, I would like my kids to get into a good school but to pick a pre-defined secondary school? Nope, I would rather talk to her about the choices at that time.

JC: I had my parents had this whole JC thingy forced onto me and I did resent it. Ultimately, it would be her choice if she would pick JC or Polytechnic.

University: I would probably step in to see if the University is worth paying for or worth the reputation and not one to just some degree which companies doesn't recognize.

No planning will decide when the time comes.
Primary Sch, chose a neighborhood school near my house (need to undergo balloting? If can get in good, if not try another. No PV job).
Secondary school & JC/poly depend on his result & also his preference.
Uni. Too far away, again depend on him & his result. No point forcing him as he is the one studying.
Currently I am helping him in his study so that he can have more choices when the time comes for him to choose Sec Sch.
