Is it ? Sorry I did not know the system.

I thought once you join any CCA and as long you join for 4 years with more than 75% attendance without quiting , you will minus 2 points for JC entrance, no ?

So, how exactly does this CCA point system works ?

Thanks

Now it's the new LEAPS system.

If you only fulfill the participation requirements of your CCA, you will probably be a borderline pass case.

If I recall correctly:
L - Leadership (prefect, committee role in CCA, class chairman, etc)
E - ENRICHMENT (THIS IS WRONG: Sorry can't rmb at the moment but I think it's Experience (camps, etc))
A - Achievement (win awards/competition)
P - Participation (CCA participation or events participation)
S - Service (Community Involvement Programme - CIP)

Sorry, I am not sure if every secondary school has the same system or not. To qualify for the 2 points for JC entrance, you actually need a cumulation of 21 points over 4 years.
for eg:
a. taking part in a inter-school competition and getting a gold = 2 points
b.CIP :every 10 hours = 1 point
c. for uniformed groups, each ranking will also be given points (LCP, CP,SGT etc)
So over the 4 years, all these accumulated points will be added up and
matched against the schools' CCA system.
So if your CCA is those non-competitive and 'quiet' ones, you may need
to see what other areas you need to do to chock up to 21 points.

Don't worry, on your child's school briefing, the CCA HOD will explain
in detail what are the criterion.

For me last time, i guess librarian and art society...
i would deem to be the easiest. I get to be in the
environment with the pleasant scent of books and
more books. It's like killing two birds with one stone
when i get to help with the book arrangement system
and get lotsa reading done at the same time! :wink:

As for art society, we get to fine tune our drawing/
painting/craft skills and get to do well in art exams.
And plus, no stress.

My DD1 is in art cca too... and she loves it! :D

Hhmm ... seems there is none I can think of, esp in Sec school. Its soooo much different from pri school.

Involve SYF, intensive practise when SYF is near, these are the choirs, dance, performing arts, band, CO, Strings ....

Uniform group - I heard the quite slack ones are Girls's guides or Scouts. The rest, so many marching and physical trainings.

Sports related, lots of training, can be 3 times a week.

Societies - eg. infocomm and those Chess club, Math club, Science club, definately very busy and brain juice squeeze till almost dry.

Yes, maybe librarians as bud mention. But in Sec school, is there such as CCA as librarians ? Maybe as a 2nd CCA .. I don't know ....

The best is during the CCA orientation, see which one is not the niche, that should be one. :D

Wow, thanks.

I did not know all about these. Luckily I join this forum. Hope it is not too late to catch up on my ignorance.

Q1:
But may I ask about the L-leadership part. Surely not all students will be selected for prefect, right ? So, for those not selected, how to gain points in L ?

Q2:
Is prefect in Sec schools something you can choose to join like CCA or are you to be selected by Discipline Master/School ?

Thanks

CCA is another competitive area for top O levels students to fight for the exclusive 2 point bonus to get into a Top JC, besides the HMT 2 point bonus and affiliation 2 point bonus. That's why the COP score to get into Top JC is always 2 points and not all of them can get in because the IP students have priority booking place already. :roll:

But is it mandatory that points must be obtained from all the L,E,A,P,S category ? If yes, then if the student is not a prefect or monitor how to get points ?

By the way, is Prefect in Sec schools something you can choose to join like CCA or are you to be selected by Discipline Master/School ?
