Dunman High and Victoria

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

Dunman High and Victoria

Postby FanFanX » Sun Nov 27, 2011 7:45 pm

Hi,

My son scored 262 in the PSLE.
We are Malaysians and stayed in the east. We are considering Dunman High and Victoria.

Dunman High - SAP school and co-ed
Victoria - government school and single-sex

We heard Dunman High has a lot more girls than boys, up to the ratio of 2:1. Any person can confirm this?

Kids nowadays are different from our generation. We are afraid that he may get distracted by bgr stuff.

He is active and his preference is Victoria.

Any body can provide further input to the two schools?

Thanks!

My friends from DHS confirmed that there are a lot more girls compared to boys. I also stay in the East but go all the way to the North for school:P

Is there any reason for it?
Because girls do better in PSLE or boys prefer to go to boys' schools?

my opinion is BGR better than BBR. ha.

anyway, both schools are of long history and the school culture are also long standing.

Dunman was a Chinese school so they are more Chinese (language, culture, values). It is said that Dunman students are kiasu and they focus on studies.

Victoria is a more well-rounded boys school. Besides studies, they're also sporty, etc. Boys are generally well-mannered and sociable.

if his preference is Victoria, why not?

Thanks for the confirmation.
I posted the same question at the Dunman High thread, the ratio of girls to boys is indeed 2:1.

I would say 99.99% chance. DHS's past COP hovers between 257 and 260 and this year should drop slightly due to VS and Cedar IP programme.
