NJC used to accept 4-years IP but not anymore now after it was extended to a 6-year IP with the first batch in 2009.

I am also in the same boat. my daughter is in Sec 2 and we are exploring the option of IP in Sec3.
Is it good to continue with O Levels and go for JC or opt for IP in Sec 3..! We are in a dilemma.
Yeah. Sad that NJC does not offer 4 year IP anymore. Now, it is VJC, TJC and RGS/RI.
It will be good to hear views.. if NJC is a better school then it might be wise to wait until after O levels..!
any suggestions are most welcome.

There are plenty of projects and the child not only needs to be independent, he / she must be able to work in a team. There are plenty of chances for them to be exposed to leadership and presentation skills. Personally i like what they teach my kid so the past 3 years. Hope you find a school of choice for your child :D
