If your answer to this question is yes, you should go into JC. If not, Poly.

SRJC is not a bad choice also, from TPY maybe 20 mins?

JC is a pre-university course while Poly prepares you for the workplace. Therefore, the choice is quite obvious.

Despite it being easier and easier for poly students to get into uni, you should know that the overall percentage is still very small as compared to jc students (well over 90%).

Do note that JC education isn't going to be like secondary school. It will be much tougher and requires you to consistently revise AFTER finishing all your homework and class practices. Being desperate to go university is not enough, you need to be willing to put in the time and effort for the next 2 years while your friends are partying away in poly.

GCE A Levels is a worthless certification if you are not going for a degree, its WORST than a diploma. Therefore, if you think you would very likely not work hard and study for the next 2 years, I STRONGLY suggest you to enter poly instead. I'm not saying that poly is all fun and games, but its definitely easier to pass.
