I've achieved 7 points (nett) for my O levels. I am really really keen on going to TJC, however, I'm one point short from its science cut-off point. Anyone know of TJC's appeal system?

Hi I can give u my opinion and tips.

1. Put TJC as ur first choice. This will really show them how earnest you are in wanting to get into TJC.

2. Get LOTS of recommendation letters. CCA teacher, Form teacher, leadership teacher incharge (if u have any)

3. It will really help if you are in a sports CCA. if you are in a performing arts cca or a club, the chances of getting in is lower.

4. You could write a letter to TJC about how much you want to get in and why. Show your sincerity.

Source: I did my research as i wanted to appeal to VJC. gave up on that thought as im 2 points away. therefore i'm putting TJC as my first choice.

Is it possible to appeal with a sport I'm not in?

I doubt the chances will be high if you do so. In any case, you will be competing with those who are experienced in that sport because of their CCA. Unless you can show that you are good in that sport with your achievements etc.
