HC or NJC?? Help! urgent

Postby thechocoholic » Tue Jan 14, 2014 7:10 pm

So i just got back my O level results yesterday and i got 8 raw and 4 overall..
So right now im deciding between hci or njc. I know i cant get into HCI with that score but im hoping to appeal in using my cca and also because i have 7A1s. On the other note, i got B3 for english and C6 for HCL.
What im afraid of is that NJC will reject me because I put them as second choice.
So what are the chances of that happening?
And also what are the chances of HCI accepting my appeal? Is it very slim? help!!

4 is safe for NJ IMO. Put HC then NJ so that you can appeal HC as 1st.

Hi,

How does one gets bonus 2 or 4 points?

CCA? HMT? Affiliation? what else?

What is the maximum bonus points that you can use for deduction?

If you have CCA, HMT n affiliation, it will be 6 points, is this possible?

Try HC as 1st choice so that it will be very easy to appeal in.

1. There is a very low risk if you put NJC as the 2nd choice - if the COP of NJC improves by 1 point this year.

2. Appealing to HCI requires excellent records of achievements in a sound CCA. I don't know which CCAs HCI is looking at, but the number of CCAs that have the right to consider appeal students will be very few.

3. You need to do the appeal fast. Once it comes to the Orientation week and you still have no conclusion about the outcome of your appeal, you have to register yourself at NJC first or your space will not be reserved. However, once you have done so, you are formally a NJC student, transferring to another JC requires clearance and approval by the college.

4. 90% of the NJC students are 3 or 4 pointers.
