1) Usually starts about 7.30 and ends anytime from 2 to 6, depending on your combi and CCA commitment

2) Econs is something O level students never touched before, but given that so many people take H2 Econs nowadays if you do your TYS and study properly it should be fine. Econs at A level is hardly as analytical as history nor nuanced as lit anyway. Similar to geog in terms of skills needed.

3) No need to take H1 CL in JC if you passed O level HMT. No disadvantage not to take.

4) 1st day usually in early Feb or so.

5) Depends. Location, programs offered, CCA offered, subject combi offered.

6) Good thing about 5 point sch is that you likely have abit more special opportunities and support for scholarship/overseas U applications not offered to mainstream JCs. Bad thing is more competition. So up to you. In the end if you want to go to local U (or UK arguably) its only grades that matter, so doesn't matter which JC you go to. if you want to aim for scholarships or US unis, then you need the CCAs and everything else.
