Chung Cheng Sec (Main) or TKGS.

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.

Is your kid allowed to take HMT? (this can be seen from the PSLE exam slip on Language Option).

Although I know that MOE has discontinued with Secondary School Banding, CCH was Band 2 or 3 in the very recent past. I have spoken with a friend who is also considering CCH for her kid but she also said that she is quite surprised by CCH's relatively low COP. She said in the past CCH was in the same league as Dunman High (COP 257 last year).

Sorry, I can't answer your other queries with any authority as I am also evaluating which schools I should apply for my kid. What I have mentioned are bits and pieces of info I gathered.

Chung Cheng as a newly renovated big campus. TKSS and TKGS campus small and they have not been renovated since 90s.

Target school for next year PSLE... I know I am being ks but trying to find out more :wink:

Does that mean so long as my dd pass her PSLE HMT, even if she did not get A* for normal CL, she is eligible to do HMT in TKGS (of course if she gets in)? I personally think being able to do HMT in Sec School is important. Would like them to continue if possible.

She has been to Chung Cheng through some school events. She said it's is like a temple to her.... So she wasn't impressed :shrug: No offence to Chung Cheng as I believe it is a good school but she is really "wierd". She also went to NYGH for some events for P5 this year and she was not impressed either.... :?

True, CCH has newer campus compared to TKGS.
But in terms of O Level performance which I found out, TKGS produced better results consistently than CCH.
Band 1 this year- sch said.
My only concern is how the TKGS girls behave as my girl can be easily influenced by peers.
Kids these days you know lah.
Hope present students/parents can response.
