BBSS was right beside my school. You may consider Bukit View too, but their COP is lower than yours.

My DD got 227, we are very disappointed because we estimated 237. So we have to get over it and move on. Anyone went to the various Jurong school open house today? Any feedback about those school? We went to Jurong Sec then to HuaYi. Jurong Sec students were quite mature, polite and helpful. However the location and surrounding was not satisfying because its around the old estate of Jurong with old HDB flats besides the school waiting to be demolished. HuaYi didn't give me a good and positive impression. Actually we were hoping that FuHua willl have an open house but they didn't.

The concern with Jurong is also on the other side, there is a BTO Lake Vista starting... Piling work starts 2012. It will be very noisy and dusty when the children are having classes. That's my concern too. May leave Jurong out.

227 should try clementi town. Just next to clementi mrt station. cutoff 231. heard this year cos of the difficult maths and also more students in cohort, more classes will be added to several top schools. as such, there will be a cascading effect and the cutoff is likely reduced. could be 3-5 points for some schools (esp those with added classes).
