i dun think its advisable to put down a jc in ur option form, or even appeal into a JC. It would be better if u put down poly courses..:)

According to the JAE Booklet, Pg 8 9.1.1, for appeal to JC/MI, one has to meet the minimum requirement for entry which is 20 (raw score) for JC. Let's say if one has 22 and with CCA bonus of -2, one would not be able to appeal to JC still as the min score can't be a 20 pts net.

You may look at your L1R4 and if it's <20, you hv a chance for MI.

Might not be advisable to appeal into a JC.
What are your subject grades?

The JC curriculum is going to be very demanding and require a lot of you foundations in O's to be "there" before you can proceed to a higher level.

Also, CJC cut-off point is 10 points and some students with 12 or 13 points fail to get in via the appeal. However of course, it doesn't hurt to actually just try.

If you were to write down any codes on provided on form A, it would basically be void. Basically, it means that you would lose an option out of the 12 you have. If you don't qualify/was not selected for ANY of your 12 options, you would only be allowed to choose courses (from which you qualify aka poly) of which HAVE PLACES AFTER ALL OTHERS HAVE BEEN ADMITTED.

Given that you raw score is 27, I do not think you have much choices in poly either unless you failed a subject. L1R4 of 20 and above crosses out most poly courses too.

Maybe MI would be a better choice for you if you wanna take A Level.

27 points is an average of 4 points for each subject of your L1R5.

I wouldn't suggest you going the JC route, because the demands of a JC curriculum is tremendous, and especially for H2 Maths and H2 Physics, it builds on your O levels knowledge.

JC teachers assumed you are well versed with your O levels curriculum, and if you aren't, it will be really tough to survive JC.

You don't qualify for JC. Try looking at MI?


Though submission of choices is over already..

Hihi, omg thanks for the replies! I thought I would receive an email when you all replied. I went down to JJC but they told me to go down again when the results are out. Since I couldn't put JJC as one of my choices, I listed all my 12 choices with courses from SP (and MI as my 7th and 8th). Just received the results and I'm in MI science... I was really hoping JJ would accept me through my CCA but yeah, they said I need to have a net score of 20 at least... T________T Don't know if I should still go down with all the testimonials and stuff... Please give me some suggestions! Or should I appeal into SP?? Or any opinions on MI? :gloomy:
