Raffles Girls' School (Secondary) [*IP]

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

There are parent meeting sessions in coming weeks btw. And a parent conference too. From the detailed circular, I have the impression that the new P has all lined up throughout the year for all levels. This is a good start.

For RGS, everyone has to do o level mother tongue so that they don have to do MT in Year 5 and 6.

It has to be Higher MT at O level to be exempted from MT at Y5. And unless things have changed, not all girls take HMT.

Only if they pass HMT at O levels. If they don't pass, or aren't satisfied with their grade, or only took MT at O levels, they still have to take H1 MT in Year 5.

Hello. Anybody have any idea.. 🙏🏽
1) how many slots are there for DSA maths?
2) how many applicants roughly?
3) how large is the commitment required once accepted? (Training 1-2 per week / how many mandatory competitions?)

Much appreciated if have any experience on above. Thanks

1) about 20 +/-
2) 100-200? Not sure how things have changed but in the past math is the most competitive academic dsa domain. Platinum or gold in math Olympiad competition will definitely increase your chances. But heard most hv to sit for math test if being shortlisted these days.
3) commitment not v heavy. 1x training a week, about 2 hours (the girls are v busy, they don’t hv time for more trainings!) many girls can’t even make it to trainings from year 2 onwards as it clashes with the many other projects and activities in school (but can only be excused with valid reasons). 2-3 mandatory competition per year and required to attend some math related workshops.
