Hi, can anyone tell me what are the benefits of having CLEP in JC? I don't want to miss out another advantage for future admissions. Thanks a lot.

Does it mean that for instance if I got 4 points and I am accepted to CLEP by schools like HCI, it is a guarantee enter to HCI with an overall of 2 points?

If you're accepted into CLEP and your aggregate is 2, you would have no problems entering HCI.

What are the odds of getting accepted for CLEP though? With an A2 Chinese grade, how difficult would that be? I think there are limited places and A2 is the lowest possible grade to qualify (considering higher Chinese as well).

I read the booklet and it says you might get kicked out of the JC if you cannot sit for the A level exam of the CLEP ultimately (if the JC choose to preserve their image and disallow you to take part). I know of some china scholars who even had to drop CL lit because it was too difficult. I don't know what this means for an average Singaporean student, but I guess it's going to be more difficult. The question is: should we take the risk?
