Higher Chinese Marks

Postby ssll » Mon Oct 11, 2010 4:26 pm

Please advise,

I understand that points for higher Chinese can only be used for applying to SAP schools , but is it true the aggregate score for 4 subjects must be min 250 in order to use the higher chinese points.
e.g if aggregate score is 243 , and higher chinese is 3- distinction , and if apply to sap schools, can it be 246 then ?

There's no minimum aggregate before you're allowed to use the HCL bonus points.

True, but I would think that students applying for SAP schools would already make up top 30% of cohort.

agree....dun think any Sap sec schools COP are below the top 30% of the cohort, (is there??)
so doesn't really matter top how many percent, so long meet the criteria of the entry.

SAP school - Chung Cheng Main COP is 230 or so. quite low. could it be outside the top 30% cohort?

anyway, the form (together with the result slips) will state if one is eligible for SAP sec school
or eligible for HCL in sec sch, so dun worry abt the percentage.....
