Hi!

Just like to get some advice regarding school selection...
My DS got 244...
was thinking of the following:


choice
#1 -ACSI (express)
#2- SJI
#3- Commonwealth
#4- FMS(S)
#5- Maris Stella
#6- Clementi Town

understand 244 is out of range for ACSi and SJI.
Is there other school worth considering?
any advice is appreciated..

:thankyou:

I think 244 for SJI should be quite safe but not for ACS(I).

Tks !

now some of my friend are telling me the actual 'COP' may be higher than the published because of the some of the students enter via DSA. if not via DSA, via S1 posting may need more than the COP published.

not sure how true :?

Generally to appeal you have to put the school as first choice.
Unless you can give them reasons like you are staying next to SJI then they may consider.

Thanks !

thot I read somewhere COP for ACSI (express) was 245 last year...
but elsewhere states 250 ??
if 250 still worth trying ?:oops:

my strategy

fFirst 4 choices, aims abit higher...for ACSI, SJI...etc

choice 4 & 5 choose school with lower COP like FMS, Commonwealth...
does that made sense??

According to the "Choosing your Sec Schools" book, the 2010 COP for ACSI (express) without affiliation is 245.
