MSP & other questions

Postby Angel2005 » Sat Nov 26, 2011 12:33 pm

My dd didn't do too well for her PSLE. She scored 186 and is eligible for Normal (Academic ). In her Option form, on one of the pages, it stated she is eligible for the MALAY SPECIAL PROGRAM. I'm wondering if this is offered to all Sec1 non-Malay students or fir those who hav done alright in their languages as she scored As for both her English and Chinese. Also as she will be in NA, is it advisable for her to take MSP up if she has the interest? Also, if in the worse case scenario she cannot cope with it, is she allowed to drop it after Sec1?

Another question is, she got 186 and that's like 2 marks below last year's cutoff score of 188 for some schools for the Express stream! Can I make an appeal to get her into Express?

Last question, hoe many schools can I appeal to because we are torn between 2schools but as we are not from their affiliated school, we're worried we might not get in though we stated them as 1st and 2nd choice.

Thanks and hope someone can advise me:)

It states here: http://www.moelc.moe.edu.sg/courses/courses.htm
that as long as you are NA or express, you will be offered the programme.

Thanks Yewniffler, the website you provided was very informational. My dd's school didn't tell us anything about it and never knew this until we got the option form. Much appreciated!!! :rahrah:
