SAJC Learning culture

Hi!

Would appreciate some feedback on SAJC as DS is considering applying to this school. DS gets easily stressed with exams, hence, I'm wondering if this route, in particular, SAJC, is for him. Any comments about the school's learning environment and culture will be very much appreciated. Thanks!

SA is known for its playful culture.. But really in any jc there will be stress esp when exams are near.

I dunno about the working hard part, but during my time is was play hard, party harder.

I recall that we always seem to have a celebration for some event every week... both in school and outside. And every weekend is party time. :p
Me and my classmates always wondered how we managed to keep up with our schoolwork back then.

Seems SAJC is quite a balanced JC from the few feedback. Thanks a lot!

I like the play hard part. These days schools tend to be too academically driven that they seem to forget sports and arts let our youths excel further.

I wonder how many subjects do JC students have to take per semester and what grades these days can make it to local Universities?

I think they are known more for sports than arts. You could check the grades from university websites. But general guideline would be at least A or B.

Hi, Former SAJCian here. During my time back at Malan Road, the culture was also playful. However, a number of us still made it to NUS Faculty of Business Administration, Science, and Arts & Social Science.
