Victoria School

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.

Thanks for any reply. :smile:


Yup it is definitely possible, but the switch requires good grades and cca record. VS O level track is equally as good, quite a number who didn’t make it to the VS IP got into VJC.

According to my nephew who was selected for IP in sec 2 a couple of years back, criteria is that min 70% is required for the core subjects, namely, Eng, Sci, Math and 1 humanities. The rest of the subjects such as HMT, MT, D&T, etc need not be at least 70%.

Hi all
DS scored 247. Wanted to know what 6 best options can we try.
So far first choice was
VS - O level
sji - o level.

An I right to assume he can't apply for any IP.

Can anyone suggest any other good school?

Thanks

You came to a VS thread to ask for other recommendations :sweat:

My suggestion would be:
1. VS - IP
2. VS - O Level
3. VS - O Level
4. VS - O Level
5. VS - O Level
6. VS - O Level

According to MOE S1 book, O level may be higher chance.
