Hi,

My DD has got 240 for his PSLE and is feeling very down. He asks me if he works very hard and aces his examination, will he be able to appeal for a better school? Please share your thoughts parents. Help please!

I thought a score of 240 is good.
Did you appeal for an IP school recently?
Whatever it is, work hard and enjoy learning.

We tried to appeal for Anglican High School but got rejected. Looking at him, I can see that he is very determine to work hard. He expected an aggregate of 250 and above but score only 240.

I guess IP and not IP, they are just different routes of education. Nobody dares to say which is better than the other.
Since the dust has settled, work hard and your child may like his school and would not consider transferring out at the end of this year...

You can always approach the school before the end of the year if you did very well academically and have good CCA or other achievements. It might not be easy to get a transfer bec there may not be vacancies. Another option is to try again at the end of Sec 2 where some schools open up vacancies for entry via DSA and foreign scholars.

I went to browse through some of the topics and they claim that we should have a very good reason to appeal into the school. What are some examples? Help please!

I believe that is an invalid reason!
