Avg L1R5 9.2
About 70+ girls who scored raw 6 points. All these probably translate to 2 pointers because most of them get 4 bonus points.
About 27 girls with straight A1s in all subjects. (based on picture in school facebook). Of these about 2-3 are asean scholars. The rest are all Singaporeans.
Top cedarian is a Singaporean with 11 A1s in 1 sitting. (excluding MT taken last year).

:congrats: :congrats:


Cedar - the 11 A1s is higher than St Nicholas' previous years' top students of 10 A1s (excluding MT taken year before), right?

Am curious what are the 11 subjects taken in 1 sitting? I can only think of 2 languages, 2 maths, 3 sciences and 3 humanities (lit, geo & hist).

Actually, SNGS is not the only secondary school that had top pupil(s) securing 10 A1s last year. The chinese papers hadn't got all the information available so it only featured SNGS & Nan Hua having pupils with those scores. My friend's dd from Paya Lebar MGS said last year their school also produced a 10A1s top pupil but nobody seems to know about it. It could be verified from their school website last year.
The popularity of a school is dependent on publicity and the help of reporters too.

I'm wondering what the 11 subjects taken at one sitting are too. I don't think a student takes both trip sci and trip humanities (social studies included). So maybe 2 lang, 2 Math, trip sci, 2 humanities plus two of the following - 3rd lang/MEP/Art?

MOE/Media is doing a very good job this year by not mentioning anything abt excellent O level results. For me, I always take these excellent results with a pinch of salt n use the stories of top scorers to motivate my children.

Now, no more excitement in the release of major exams in Singapore, leh.
