School of Science and Technology

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.

SST says they will send emails to shortlisted students in mid-Jul. So I guess if by this Friday or next Monday no email means did not pass phase 1.

With reference to other posts in the previous years, shortlisted candidates will be informed from 20 July to 24 July. When I called SST, they said that all of the emails will be sent out by the 28 July.
Good luck to all.
:thankyou:

They replied my email said in mid july. Phase 2 has 2 sessions on 28 jul & 4 aug. If reply by 28 jul seems late.

Below is an extract of the email they have sent.

If you have taken the test before July, you should receive the notification by next Friday (20/7). Otherwise, the notification would come in later. We regret that only shortlisted candidates would be notified via email.

:thankyou:

That means that the email would come between 20 July and 24 July?
My son took the exam on 1 June and he really wants to know.

Hi all,
My kid is P5 this year. Would like to ask if SST first round test is similar to NUSH where the questions are all maths & science Olympiad questions? Thanks in advance

Hi, nope (according to hearsay), they're in different realms. NUSH, kids not well-trained in Olympiad MA+SC will know they're not making it after the first round (cos they'd have issues simply understanding the questions). SST questions are manageable but time-consuming; students have to work fast. An observation (this year) is that SSTs curriculum offering interests many & we see strong students (GE centre-school MA+SC grades A*) trying for it.

Hi parents

Has anyone heard from SST yet regarding the outcome of the written test? I am getting a bit nervous for my son who has his heart set only on SST.

Thanks!
