Is going to an IP school(Junior College) the way to go?

Postby 2210 » Mon Jan 12, 2015 6:07 pm

Hi guys,just received my Olevel results hours ago.
Got raw score 8points,nett score 4points.
As i'm currently staying in the North,i am comtemplating if i should go to National junior college,which is a 30-45minutes bus ride from my house,also as i have heard from many others that IP students are in a sense,more prepared than us in the preparations for the As,so i'm wondering if it will be hard to cope should i enter NJC?In addition,how are the academic achievements and culture like in NJC?
Any opinions will be appreciated.Thank you!

Go for NJC if your dream school's just 30-40min away.

You won't regret it. Looks good on resume. Think long term. NJC not so "cliquish" like other JCs with affiliates.

But i have also heard that in NJC,the IP students tends to perform better as the sch has already been preparing them for the As since Year1,so i'm quite unsure if i can cope with the competition there.

Dd also went to ip jc. I guess it varies for every individual. She had a very cohesive class consisting of about 80% fr ip. And it is not true the ip kids all do better. In fact the jae in her class performed better because they were more rigorously exam trained. But the ip students pick up fast. once they are used to the exams rigours, they'll do fine. But I'm not sure about njc though.

Oh,that's comforting to hear haha,but i know in NJC,the IP students and the JAE students will be assigned to separate classes,so its like kinda segregating..Hmm
