When does JC1 start?

I understand that O Levels results are released in mid Jan. So when does JC1 start?

I asked earlier this year and was told that it is a few days after the release of the O level results, but the actual date is only announced by MOE when the results are released.

Release dates shouldnt deviate much every year?

Both my kids will get their results in 2016.

So good to plan for a holiday in January?

zbear, your kids are doing O and A levels next year? This calls for a huge holidays after the exams. Party from Dec 2015 to end Jan 2016.

Yes n I will be SUPER STRESSED next year when I see them preparing for their exams.

I will also be very wrecked with nerves when the results are released.

Can someone enlighten me, if the results are out in mid-Jan and school starts from early Feb, does it mean there is only 1 week for application and outcome will be out within 1-2 weeks? MOE is very efficient then~

Yes, they are. It's all computerised these days. However, the appeals and the 'musical chairs' can take another couple of weeks (or more) before things settle down.
