Thanks kiasuson. I alway have this one more layer of comparison. That is to compare both with NUS high IP programme and wonder what are the pros and cons. ..

The ACS Independent is at Dover, cut off point is around 255

The ACS International is at HV, cut off point is cheque book

Hi Pen88n,
totally agreed with you. My son's teacher threw the cheque of $20 donation back to him and said,"I'm sure your parents can do better than this." From then on I don't even want to contribute a single cent. We were even force to subscribe to their school magazine which I refused to. Guess what the teacher called me to say I have to write in to the school the reason for not subscribing. End up my poor boy was being marked and get some nasty remarks from the teacher.
