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.
I live at woodlands, but the secodary school I want to transfer to is at bukit batok. I am sec 1. I intend to transfer after midyears. The reasons for transfer is: I don't like my school, the other school have CCAs I want, it's niche program suits me and I have been considering the school since last year when I took my PSLE. My aggregate score matches.
If you apply to change school, it's better to emphasise the positives like CCA, niche areas etc. Try not to bad-mouth your present school, whatever you feel about it as it will give the new principal a bad impression. There's no need to lie, but be moderate and vague about your present school.
