GP, Project Work and 4th Content Subject are of equal weightage, i.e. 10 points each.
The other three Content Subject makes up 20 points each.
Maximum points is thus, 90.

MerlionG, thks - i think so too - add to 90 for combi = 3H2 + 3H1
next qn :
3H1 - 1 contrasting H1 subject + 1 GP + 1 Pw

i think GP is compulsory to pass for general uni admission , unless special conditions

So if a A level kid get v good results in Chinese , can chinese subject replace Pw or contrasting subject for Uni pts calculation?

if chinese can't be use - hmm... why need to take chinese in A level :scratchhead:

Cannot replace but can be included, just google.
The 3H1 should be content subject, PW, GP. (Discussion not about KI, that one separate discussion).

CL need to take to fulfil Singapore’s bilingual policy, I think.

UAS Max:
H2 - 20
H2 - 20
H2 - 20
H1 (or worst 4th H2) - 10
PW - 10
GP - 10
Total = 90

If you add in chinese, you will have to convert the total back to base 90. You cannot replace PW, GP, or H1 with chinese. In most cases, adding chinese won't affect your UAS very much.

For example:
H2 - A = 20
H2 - B = 17.5
H2 - C = 15
H1 - A = 10
PW - B = 8.75
GP - C = 7.5

UAS = 78.75
(if add chinese, say A, which is = 10, then UAS = 88.75/100 * 90 = 79.875)

Another example:
H2 - A = 20
H2 - A = 20
H2 - B = 17.5
H2 - C = 7.5
PW - A = 10
GP - B = 8.75

UAS = 83.75
(if add chinese A = 10, then UAS = 93.75/100 * 90 = 84.375)

Yes, to enter local university have to fulfill the MTL requirement.

@MP. (1) iirc no need. An RI family member entered NUS Accountancy even though it failed GP. But have to check latest requirements...

(2) That's what mine says too! - to justify the refusal to study hard for CL.

Clearing MT is necessary for non-provisional admission into local Universities,. It is however, not a requirement for it to be included in the UAS score. Hence, there is no need to 'do well' in it.
Chinese cannot replace GP in the UAS computation.

Entry to local universities is contingent on fulfilling all entry requirements; placement into course is based on UAS (for courses without other admission tests), if not applying via discretionary admissions.

3H1 for UAS - the content H1 in the UAS doesn't have to be the contrasting H1 subject - it could be the weakest H2 content subject, regardless contrasting or not. The 4th H2 content subject will be converted into a H1 weightage if you read 4H2s. It is the contrasting H1 in the UAS if you read 3H2 and 1H1 (contrasting).
