What do you want to do? Poly? JC?

For JC, you are still eligible for conditional admission. See here:

As you have D7 for English, it's best to go to Poly because GP is a killer in JC.

It looks like a freak result for English, esp when all other subject results like combined humanities are good. Don't lose hope, good luck!

Yes, pretty special! I would go for JC: you are clearly academically-oriented. Well done on the other subjects.

Your English result is anomalous. Try to analyse what happened, and then seek to remedy any shortcomings you identify.

GP in JC is a killer. It is necessary for admission to the local universities. However, I think - please do check as I may not be up-to-date with the latest policies - in the worst case scenario of your not obtaining a good grade in GP you can still be admitted to the local universities via a qualifying English test conducted by the universities themselves; and even if you fail this test, you can still be admitted provided you take a compulsory course in English, which you must pass in order to graduate.

Or KI. Otherwise, the qualifying test or conditional admission as I outlined.

I always have to remind my science stream students 'Take GP seriously'!
