my girl will be turning 20 this year...
The age range is up to 2yrs above the normal age. But you can call MOE to check if there is any flexibility on this. If she has a good reason, you can ask if they can waive the limit.
There is no age limit.
As long as she meets the qualifying criteria and is comfortable studying / working alongside classmates who are a couple of years her junior.
Maybe the 2-yr age limit is for international students. I just looked at MOE's info on SPERS-Sec and they allow up to 4 yrs age difference (that's for returning Singaporeans), but they don't specify an age limit for JC/MI.

It's 6 subjects, not 5.

because Maths is compulsory, inside L1R5

so your l1r5 is 15, because added your Maths inside.

Maths is a core subject requirement, inside L1R5. Not your "Food and Consumer Education " subject.

you have 15, because your 6 subjects are

Eng 4
Mother Tongue 3
Math 4

Sci 2
Geog 1
Art 1

Total (add-up) equal
(4 + 3 + 4 + 2 + 1 + 1) = 15, for 6 subjects


definition of L1R5, including Maths (moe)

Thanks for the link, phtthp!

Looking at Table 3, L1R5 calculation for jkids’ child should be:

L1 (compulsory first language): English 4 pts
R1 (compulsory humanities): Geog 1 pt
R2 (compulsory maths/science): Science 2 pts
R3 (compulsory maths/science): Maths 4 pts
R4 (any subject): Art 1 pt
R5 (any subject): MT or food & consumer edu, whichever one 3 pts
Total 15 pts

Now that the 2018 O Level results will be released on 14/01/19 Monday, I have compiled a list of the open house dates of JCs based on information that I gathered from either the school websites or their facebook pages as at 4pm today. Please help to amend/ add if there is any correction or additional information made available.
