Boys' schools normally have lower COP than girls' schools. Especially this year, if you are strong in languages, you will get a high T-score. And girls are normally the ones stronger in languages. Look at the list of top scorers, more girls than boys. :D

Come HCI or RJC, the boys will likely to do as well, if not better than the girls. We have been through JCs and Uni, and we know that in secondary schools, boys perform much better than when they were in primary schools, as compared to the girls, especially in the Science stream.

HCI & NYGH are SAP schools. Bonus points for admission to the SAP schools come in 3, 2 or 1 if one obtains grades of Distinction, Merit or Pass respectively in HCL.

I believe the mentioned COP 2008 for HCI (259) & NYGH (263) are inclusive of HMT.Correct me if I am wrong.

As for DHS (260), it is inclusive of HCL.

My son's friend got 258 before HCL bonus but didn't get into HCI. So 259 should be before bonus ?

What was the T-score for yr son's friend after adding HCL bonus ? My cousin went to HCI for appeal, yesterday.He was told that the COP 2008 for HCL was 259 but he didn't ask the admin staff whether this '259' was before or after adding bonus pts.Even if the '259' after adding bonus pts was the COP, not all '259' holders were able to qualify. Someone in another forum had said that these COP came with 4 decimal figures behind.

Anyway, he simply filled up the appeal form & was told that the appeal results would be out by next Friday.Thankfully, the helpful admin staff photocopied his result slip for him as he had brought the original one only.

My cousin was impressed by the sheer size of HCI's compound & appreciate the friendliness of the admin staff and even the security guards.Good school indeed.

:D

yes, the staff at HCI project an image of humbleness and warmth. Parents and students were made to feel welcomed and appreciated unlike its competitor, where one only feels welcomed if one is among the top scorers. The 'borderliners' will definitely be happier in HCI than its competitor. Juz my opinion.

Just to share my experience in RI. The principal, teachers, staff and students of RI make my son and myself feel at home during the registration day. The new principal greets the new students and parents in the hall before her speech. She also walks around to ensure we are alright during the registration process. I believe my son will be well taken care under her leadership.

The students are very well organise in maintaining the long queue for the purchase of uniforms, PE attire and books.
