ACSI or RI after GCE"O" result today

Postby esme38 » Mon Jan 11, 2016 5:41 pm

Hi parent and students,

My girl from SCGS is very happy. Secured 7 points before bonus points. She thought she will not fare so well. She prefers ACSI. I prefer RI which is nearer home. Please advise.

RI COP for Science is 3 n Arts is 4. I am not sure about ACSi - is she looking at their IB prog?

What is her nett L1R5? If it's 3, it can be a 50-50 chance to enter RI.

Hi there,

My girl's O level results are as follows:

English: B3
Higher Chinese: A2
Chinese: A1
Combined Humanities: A1
A Maths : A1
Further Maths : A1
Physics: A2
Chemistry: A2
Biology: A2

L1R5 is 9

What's her chances of getting into NJC or VJC?
As she scored a B3 for English, does it affect her application to enroll in either of the above JC ?

How is the nett L1R5 calculated?

My DD got L1R5 of 6

English:A1
Chinese: A1
Combined Humanities: A1
A Maths : A1
Maths : A1
Geography: A1
Physics: A1
Chemistry: A2
Higher Chinese: B3

CCA Bonus Pts :2

So the nett L1R5 is 6-2(CCA pts)-2(HCL) =2???
DD thinking of RI, VJC and HCI among her choice. Any chance for RI with nett L1R5?

Hi zbear,
yes, nett L1R5 is 3 points. The whole batch of girls seems fascinated by ACSI. She find IB interesting. Now, with this result, i am thinking RI is nearer to home, and what a waste not to choose RI since this was her ideal secondary school RGS when she was in primary 5, and then switched her interest to SCGS when she was in primary 6. No concrete decision on whether taking sciences or art/humanities.

Congrats. Nett L1R5 is 2. She won't have any problem entering RI or HC as COP for both JC Science is 3.

ACSI IB COP is 5 so she won't have a problem getting in.

I think the final decision has to come from her as she will be the one who is going to study. As parents, we can only advise. If we force n they become unhappy later, they may turn around n blame us.

Perhaps both of you attend their Open Houses n get the feel of the environment, programme n culture?

No need. She can throw back the subject to the school. But I think some JCs offer Bicultural Programmes. Read through the JAE booklet to find out what courses each JC offer n you can get a better idea.
