For the cutoff 224 what factors to consider to select school

Postby bmval » Sun Nov 25, 2012 7:14 pm

Hi
My daughter scored 224. Having difficulty in selection of secondary school. Our preference is Temasek or Dun Man but the cut off is 230.
Looking for ideas on what factors to be considered in selecting the school. Should we consider Normal academy in Temasek or dunman secondary. Currently living in Bedok and moving to sengkang in 2 years.We are planning to put Temasek and Dunman in first two choices.Near by school of my cut off does not have tamil language.Share your ideas.Thanks

From my understanding, if u choose schools with COP higher than your daughter's, chances are very low

Definitely will not get the schools. Do not use your first two choices. Explore schools in Punggol or Seng Kang instead.

We have been aiming for schools with higher mother tongue(Tamil). Are we eligible for it or how?
