L1R5 and Bonus Points For JC Admission

Postby Sexyviper » Thu Jan 01, 2015 11:59 am

Hi,

I would like to find out is it true that the maximum bonus points that can be deducted from L1R5 is only 4 points?

For example if you have accumulated more than 4 bonus points in your CCA, HCL and other activities but the max you can use for deduction is only 4 points?

Thanks.

Thanks John.

Any idea what's the norm or average that students accumulate for bonus points?

Is it difficult to accumulate the max 4 points?

If you don't take HMT, you can have 2 points affiliation if your Sec School is affiliated to JC.

Oh, that means I can't deduct 2 more points for affiliation if I already have accumulated 4 points using say MSP and CCA?

Sorry, what is MSP?

As far as I am aware, bonus points come from -

1. CCA
2. HMT
3. School affiliation

But you can only choose 2 out of 3 from the above list as maximum points given will be 4 (based on assumption that you get 2 points for CCA).

Malay Special Programme. Works like HMT. 2 bonus points if you passed the "O" level exam.

For students who had applied for the CLEP or MLEP and have been selected for the programme, I interpret that they are allowed to deduct up to a max of 6 bonus points, per MOE website. Please refer to Table under FAQ #5.

http://www.moe.gov.sg/education/admissions/jae/faqs/

The rest are only given up to a max of 4 bonus points.
