Chance of getting into HwaChong

Postby justsuasua » Sat Jan 12, 2013 10:31 pm

I received L1R5 of 8
EL - A2
History - A1
Combine (SS/Geog) - A1
E. Math - A1
A. Math - A2
Physics - A2
Chemistry - B3
Cl - A1
Hcl - B3
CCA - A1
nett - 4
I was considering putting vjc as my first choice. My friend suggested me to put a jc with a lower cop as my first choice and appeal if I fail. At least if I do this I will not regret it later for not trying, I want to enter HC badly. :xedfingers:
Any suggestions or opinions? Thanks.

Unless you have something very special, e.g. some skills for some CCA (top school swimmer, top badminton player), it's highly unlikely that HC will accept your appeal.

Hc won't accept you unless you are damn special. Their 3 cut off is already partial.

Very hard for the man in the street. But i have heard that if you have connections, they can make exceptions. :smile:

Even VJC only accepts partial 4, you may not be accepted with 4 nett. If you do not put VJC as your first choice, you will be at disadvantage when you attempts to appeal

My understanding is out of 1200 places for JC1 in HC, about 1000 places already chopped by IP students. You are left with 200 places to fight for by all other non-IP students, and their cut-off is 3 points, so your chance is like zero? (Sorry to say that).
