You can, but since it is unlikely that the COP will drop 24pts from last year, it may not be very useful to you. COPs generally vary by 2-3 pts at most from year to year. If you still want to do that, make sure that at least a few of the schools you list have COPs at or below your score.

24 points is alot, very likely that you won't get in.

How about if the points are short by 2? My DD just miss by 2 to CHIJ TP. We are wondering if we should put it as first choice.

No harm trying. But make sure at least a couple of the 6 choices are very safe to get in.
