Other interesting facts:

1. The independent secondary schools attract the Top 5 % of each PSLE cohort and are targeted at students who are
clearly university-bound.

2. The SAP schools normally attract the Top 10% - 20% of each PSLE cohort.

3. Students who are in the Top 10% of their PSLE cohort will be given an option by the Ministry of Education to study a foreign language (French / German/ Japanese)

4. NUS High School, SOTA and SST are targeted at students with specific talents.

hi ks2me, maybe you could add on if its SAP or non SAP because the SAP are allowed to include HMT and if the COP is included or excluded HMT. For eg. I know NYGH, last year 262 COP is included HMT. Tks :D

The cut-off points listed are for 2007, not 2008

eg. for 2008:

RGS 263
NYGH 263 (inc HMT)

RI 262
HCI 259
NJC 259 etc...
