Can I get into RI?

Postby bryan19825 » Tue Jan 10, 2012 9:54 pm

I have 4 points for my o level (6-2) as I did not take HMT.
Would I have any chance to enter RI through the JAE. Or would I have to appeal?

My results are:
English - A1
Math - A1
A Math - A1
Biology - A1
Physics - A1
Chemistry - A1
Combined Humanities - A1
Geography - A1
Chinese - A2

Does anyone have any experience appealing? What does it include?
Any help would be much appreciated.


P.S. Would you choose VJC or NJC?

You definately hve to appeal. Get a letter from yr previous school and submit it together with all other supporting documents which u think RI may be interested. It would be helpful if u are frm schs such as CHS, St. Nicks, Cedar, SJI, Crescent, SCGS n other top ranked schs.

As for VJ and NJ, best to go by distance. Distance is a crutial factor at senior high due to late dismissal.

Ultimately it depends alot on yrself to ace yr A-levels rather than which jc you are posted to as all three are very good!

Based on how my friends did when I was in J1, you stand a good chance of getting into RI with an appeal, especially with your 8 A1s.

All the best! (:

Come to NJC if you failed ^_^

Kidding, but in fact even with 4 nett points, it is just the average standard in NJC. Our students are mainly 3 and 4 pointers, plus a small number of 5 pointers. VJC is equally good, so I will suggest you to consider the location of these two JCs (how far they are from your house), saving 1 hour of travelling per day can make a great difference in your JC life.

Just a word of advice, if you intend to go to the 1st tier JCs, make sure that you have a strong foundation at O levels and you are an independent learner as it will be extremely tough to survive if you have a shaky foundation. An A1 grade typically ranges from 75 to 100 so if you happen to fall between 75 to the 80 plus, please rethink your decision to study at the 1st tier JCs. All the best!

I put RI as my first choice, NJC as second and AJC as third. The rest were randomly filled. I got into NJC :) All the best for your O levels.

Thanks for sharing with us your posting result! Lol, that seems like admission to RI is awfully hard without HMT..are you fine with NJC or are you going to appeal?
