:smile: Hi! Im going to Anderson secondary school this year and I am not sure which cca to choose. Not sure about the different environment of the ccas but thinking of either girl guides or Chinese dance. If anyone can give a suggestion, much will be appreciated. Thanks in advance! :scratchhead: :idea:

Please check with school. Might still need to take the school CCA if the external sport is not available.

However, if your name is Ronaldo, Messi or Rooney but your primary school doesn’t have football as a CCA, you will still get a free pass.
Haha. But in primary school you would just be guessing they will become great players in the future.
True but some great players are known since 12yo that they will be the next big thing - Pele, Kaka, Ronaldo (both the Brazilian and the Portuguese), Messi, Rooney to name a few.

Anyone could share whether the CCA 2 points could be use for both JC & Poly entry?

Cca 2 bonus points discount only apply to junior college admission, not Polytechnic. Poly don't have such thing

Yes, the CCA bonus points can be used for both JC and poly applications. Under the CCA bonus point system, eligible GCE 'O' Level applicants who have done well in CCA in their secondary schools will receive bonus points when being considered for admission to the JCs and Polytechnics. However, do note that the CCA grade cannot be used to replace another subject.

Refer to page 12 of the JAE 2019 booklet on bonus points.

Let say someone with get 10 points in O level? Less CCA & HMT to enter RI which is 6 points. Another person have 6 pts w/o CCA or HMT. This person would have priority to enter RI?

What was last year 2018 RI COP ? 5 points, not 6.

So, even with an original Raw score of 10 points, after minus 2 points for Cca plus minus another 2 points for clearing Higher Chinese, left with Nett score of 6 points -
still failed to enter RI

The other candidate with Raw score of 6 points, without anything to minus off from Cca nor from Higher Chinese - still remain at Nett score of 6 points, also failed to enter RI, whose COP was 5 .

Both candidates, also failed to enter RI

Priority goes to the 6 pts w/o CCA or HMT if same citizenship.

Check Page 25 of the JAE booklet in pdf file or Page 11 in the actual booklet

In situations where there are two or more applicants with the same net aggregate score vying for the last place in a course, they will be posted based on their citizenship status in the order of Singapore citizens, Singapore Permanent Residents and then International Students. If there is still a tie, for example between two Singapore citizens with the same net aggregate score, the one with the better gross aggregate score will be posted to the course first. If there is still a tie between the two citizens with the same gross aggregate scores, posting to the course will be determined by a computerised ballot where each candidate is given an equal opportunity.

May I know whether UG can earn full 2 points for CCA such as NCC land or Red cross? I see one domain in achievement need to represent school... NCC do what?

And if trf to another school but join back NCC still can get 2 full points?

Appreciate kind parents' advise. Thank you.
