Drop one H2 to H1?

Postby newbie1979 » Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:02 pm

hi All,

My son is in JC1 doing PCME. He's thinking of dropping Physics to H1 to focus on the other H2. His reason is that he's more interest in Chemistry than Phsyics and needs 3H2 and 1H1 for University entry.

His school has not ask him to drop one H2 though. Is it too hasty to drop now or should he wait till JC1 promo exam? Will this affect the choices available for his university entry?

Thank you.

He will not be able to take courses such as electrical, mechanical, computer and civil engineering if he drops physics to H1.

Do it after his promos.

Hang on to H2 physics and work hard for now. Things may take a turn for the better. Peace.

If two students (4H2 vs 3H2H1) end up having the 'same score'. Both apply for the same course in University, does it means the 4H2 student will have advantage in getting it?

Thanks.

For most courses (engineering, business, science, social science etc) - NO.
I'm not sure about courses like medicine and law.

I've seen many cases of students geh kiang and sticking it out with 4H2 and end up scoring grades like CCCC. Which is a real waste because I'm sure they would have done much better if they just dropped one subject early on and focus on 3 subjects.
