It might just be lower than 259. Reason - I accompanied my friend to Hwa Chong on 25 Nov. Was told that for this year onwards, MOE will not allow appeal for those on DSA (CO or WL but confirmed on PSLE results). From what I gathered is that a number of kids obtained CO DSA or posted on PSLE result day (on WL DSA) appealed to RI when their results are much better than expected from certain schools. Likewise, kids from certain schools appealed to HCI for similar reason. However this will not be possible for this year. Any appeal must be through principal to principal of the respective schools. This was the case too for Year 2008. The reason given was that there are just too many administrative work and cost involved and it defeats the purpose of granting DSA. Personally I think it would encourage people to accept offers only if they are truly serious of going to that particular school. RI seems to be much sought after and hence not many WL or even CO are given out probably due to availability of vacancies. Basing on this, my personal take is that COP might just be lowered for this year. This is only a personal view.

I advised my DS not to go for DSA unless he is clearly eligible to go to Top Schools through PSLE on meritocracy basis.
It will not make sense if the child is not capable of taking the stress.

To be fair to the top schools like RI, I don't think it is that stressful. If the child is not on acceleration (Raffles Academy program for Year 1 or in Year 4), he only need to do one Core CCA which is every Monday and Wednesday (usually) from 3.45 to 6.45pm. Unless the child does 3rd language (MOELC which is so near the school), he will have lesson on every Tuesday from 2.30pm to 5.45pm. Then he will have Tuesday, Thursday and Friday free to do his homework, project work, study etc and even have the weekends free. The homework is manageable and is not really a lot. So long as he diligently does his assignments, pay attention in class (despite other kids talking or whatever), your kid will be able to do relatively well without tuition. He can always ask the teachers if he has doubts and the teachers are rather willing to help. If your child is a consistent worker and performer and he can get in thru DSA, you might want to consider. Reason being that PSLE can be very stressful with all the additional homework and worst of all the kids around would be talking a lot about it... so it can be really really very stressful cos school teachers also kept telling them to work hard, all the reminders... stressful. A bird in hand is better than two in the bush. Just a sharing.
