NUS High School of Mathematics and Science (Diploma)

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.

She is in Secondary 2 next year and enjoys math and science, but the problem is that her results in Sec 1 are not as high for a strong applicant for NUS high for a math and science school. Her PSLE scores are also quite average(241) with an A in math and science. Is there any way I can help her?? She seems very willing.. is it also possible if a non IP school girl get into NUS high as well? :xedfingers:
hi! i hv a few friends from non-IP schools that joined NUSH in yr3 and they are coping very well! the admission procedure is a written test followed by a selection interview so i would recommend that your child display her passion in math & science by taking part in olympiads/competitions to basically build up her portfolio.

in the event that she is accepted into NUSH, she will have to take bridging modules that teach the fundamentals and allow her to catch up with the school's syllabus (a strong foundation is needed because the gap between year 1/2 and 3 is quite large!). if these modules are managed well i think she will be able to cope with the transition!
Is there any Math / Science olympiad suitable for Sec1 students?
TIA
Can take AMC 8 ( American Mathematics Competition) and Singapore Maths Olympiad Junior Section. The Junior Sciences Olympiads could be demanding if students did not attend training classes.

It's for photo taking for your Matriculation Card (Student Card), so upper body should be at least with the formal shirt & tie.

Yes, some classsroooms are airconditioned. Jacket etc optional depending how well your kid can tolerate the cold. I suppose due to the rainy weather recently, parents get the kids to bring along their jacket just in case it gets too cold. Lockers will be available for every class, no need to hunt for it. Just get a padlock for the locker.

I realized the year 1 classrooms mostly next to a cluster of aircon compressors and is super noisy. Next door is under construction too. Do your kids or past year students have any issue with the noise?
