Top 10%

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.

It seems if the child is eligible to read French, German or Japanese as a third language, he/she will be within the Top 10%. I know of a girl who has 248 and has the said option. But I have yet to hear of someone with a score of 247 that has the same entitlement.

As of now, we can use 248 as the COP for top 10% this year till we have further updates to amend it.
I know of a T score = 261 who was awarded the EESIS. Does anyone know of one being awarded same with a lower T score? This will give an indication of the COP for top 3% or 5% ( I am not sure if EESIS is given only to top 3% or 5% :oops: ).

Based on EESIS is not accurate because it is only for Singaporean. There are Permanent Residence who got 276 but not offered EESIS.

But based on French, German & Japs language is a correct reflection of top 10%.

Anyone here who has a dd or ds that got 248 and offered French, German or Japs ?

If 248 is among top 10%, does this mean that the T score attained for most children is comparatively low this year? Imagine 90% of the cohort getting 247 and below. :!: And does it mean that COP for most secondary schools will be lowered?

3rd language option is not the way to determine if your T-score falls within top 10% or not.

It is offered if your languages are "A"s and above but I am not sure if they have a cut-off point on the "A"s as in if they must be high "A"s.

I really pray and hope that the COP this year will be lower than last two years. My first two choices for the schools are pretty "ambitious", first one 6 points higher, the second one one point higher. :pray: Waiting for 22 December 2009 is really killing me :(

I think most likely your children will get 2nd choice...
