Hi,

my daughter plans on taking 3 humanities (including Higher Music) and 1 science subject only (Bio). Please please tell me how will this affect her badly? In terms of entry to top JCs and Universities.

She's keen on ACSI or Raffles, and she aims for US Universities like UCLA. She hopes for a career in Music (an unstable career though), if not she hopes to venture into journalism or business (that's why she wants a stable education background).

Please reply soon!

Really not safe to do Biology as her only science. If she only wants to do one science, do chemistry. It's the most important, and gives you more opportunities in uni.

Actually, the best choice would be 2 humanities and 2 science subjects. This offers the best chance of securing a good L1R5 score because it gives a backup should one subject screw up.
