Appeal Enquiry

Postby nachira » Sat Feb 02, 2013 3:41 pm

Hi all. I just got posted to Anderson JC (Arts). It's my third choice.

I kinda regret not putting Anderson JC (Science) as my first choice because I got rejected by NYJC (science). I was initially persistent into choosing NYJC because it offers Art Elective programme. Nevertheless, I appealed to both NYJC Science (I don't really care if I get accepted or not) and AJC Science.

I got a raw of 12 and a nett of 8 (4 bonus points for HMT and CCA) and I'm hoping for AJC Science.

As for my grades, they are not all A1s or A2s. My Chem and Physics are A2 and B3 respectively whereas my C. Humanities (SS/Hist) and Pure Geography are both B3.

What do you think of my chances getting accepted to AJC Science?

/if I get rejected by both AJC and NYJC, I may not stay on for AJC Arts. Instead, I will appeal to JJC Science. I realised that the travelling time taken was a bit too long. If I am accepted by AJC Science, I will stay on because it's worth the time.

Anyway, when will the results for the appeal be out? Or are we notified before 6 February if we are successful? Thanks. :)

1. Chance question cannot be answered, I think it would be meaningless to you if a figure 60% or 40% is given to you.

2. 6 Feb? It really depends on school an you have to check their websites for submission of appeals and releasing of the result. For example, NJC appeal submission must be done by 1 Feb noon and only postive outcome will be delivered to the applcants via phone call by 2 Feb noon.

3. Usually a JC do not accept a student to change stream from art to science. If you do not want to learn art, you should not even put it as one of the 12 choices.

AJC's Science stream is mainly dominated by students with excellent raw scores of 10 and below with almost all A's in their results. The school environment is extremely competitive and full of muggers too.

Also, AJC's math is also probably the toughest and most demanding amongst all JCs (yea, tougher than RJC). So think carefully if you wanna stay in this kind of environment as a 12 raw score holder. Not discriminating or judging, but an environment full of people who are really good in their subjects and score all A's in their tests might make you feel very inferior, pressured and stress you even more. Also, distance is an important factor to consider if your parents do not send you to school as the travelling will waste a lot of time.

Anyway, I'm sure i just repeated information you already knew of when you applied for AJC :lol:

All the best to your appeal!

Thank you! I am pretty sure about my choice. I initially wanted to stay on for AJC Arts but my parents were adamant on me appealing to Science or to a JC nearer to home (JJC). Not that I mind Arts stream.

For this year, some of those who put AJC Science as a second choice and have similar scores as I do are not accepted into JC. So I just sort of /try my luck/. I guess the COP was 8 partial for those who put AJC Science as second choice.

I do agree that the school environment is really promoting competitiveness. But I guess that's what fueled me to work hard thru sec 4 because with a stressful environment, I managed to get 12 points (even though it's not a single pointer). My prelims l1r5 was a crazy 24 points. So I guess I'll need AJC's environment.

Anyway, thank you theNSKlor for your input! :smile:
