ACJC vs VJC?

Postby dreamerz718 » Thu Jan 15, 2015 9:30 pm

For science stream,

I heard ACJC is well balanced, with good science programmes as well. The cut off for ACJC is only 1 point lower.
But in the A'level results, is there a really big difference?
But the alumni of AC is bound to be way stronger, with more opportunities.
But VJC is also so much nearer....

can anyone give me any opinion of these schools? :)

last year VJ had around 50% students with at least 3h2 dist:) I think for acjc it's around 30%? and VJ is my alma mater, so I'll definitely encourage you to go VJ :) don't regret my decision at all.

If you don't have any significant achievements or your CCA isn't one of VJ's niche CCAs, then you should just aim AC I think. And also, what are your results?? If your nett is 6 then definitely AC, unless you're interested in arts in which case, you have a decent shot at VJ.

You're right, it's not one of VJ's niche ccas. However, since you said it's a niche for your school, I'm assuming you represented your school and won stuff/leadership in it?? If so, then I think you may have a chance at appealing.

it's hard to say whether i've won stuff...because even if i did...it's more of a group thing, not individually because i'm in an orchestra.
