CCA won't be taken into consideration during JAE as posting is done by MOE.

Does the system at MOE really look at English grades? I thought it was stated at the MOE site that in the event of two students with the same net scores, they consider citizenship followed by balloting?

JAE is by merit, so yes, looking at grades of a certain subject is considered meritocracy.

citizenship definitely yes, those international students/scholars can only get into RI/HCI with 2 points and A2 and above for their English Grade. For your information, most of the international scholars may have to go AJC/SAJC even with 2 points if they only get a C for their English.

For locals, the system may still look at CCA record. Yes, the posting is done by JAE, but all JCs are allowed to input their preference/criteria to select students whose nett L1R5 is exactly equal to COP before JAE starts. The rest of the work will be dealt with by the system itself.

Interesting. So you're saying some schools get to cherry pick their students even before JAE? btw, how do you know this?
