Is CCA important in JC?

Postby Yonghao123 » Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:10 pm

I currently am in YJC and everything seems to go wrong for me, my appealing to other school fail,i appeal of subjects failed and i don't really like the environment. Although i like my friends there but i think i should think in other aspects. I now really just feel like study hard and get out of yjc and not think about anything else, but the school focuses a lot on other areas of development like CCA and etc so i want to know that is it really that important cos i don't feel like taking part in all these activities anyone got experience in these areas??

It is if you intend to further your studies.

CCA performance is not so important (unless you are considering good Us in Us/Canada, or scholarships).

CCA attendance is important, it will affect your testimonials.

In conclusion, the minimal you need to do is to choose a CCA with only one session per week and make yourself physically present on that day.

CCA can be a good avenue for you to at least enjoy JC life. If you're not keen to participate in competitions and all that, just join a club you like which is relatively slack, like meeting once a week, hang out with friends and at the same time get some work done.

CCA is important if u are looking for scholarships whether local or more importantly overseas. So think carefully. If u plan to study further and your parents may not be able to fully subsidise your further studies, then u need to have a good CCA record. Good results at A levels not enough as too many students will score well.
