Congratulations to all P6ers, whatever the results, be it stellar or not, within or outside expectations, we have to look forward to our next step. Secondary school selections. Feel free to put in your requests for advice.

To all experienced forummers, please share your experience and thoughts. It'd be much appreciated! :smile:

TIA.

Can you suggest good schools in East for a score of 231? Appreciate any replies as I did not do my schooling in SG and new to SG education system.

It's going to be difficult to predict COP this year cos the results are starting to look pretty different from last year.

With 231 I guess some of the better options in the East would be Tanjong Katong Sec, Temasek Sec and Ngee Ann Sec

Next tier would be schools like Dunman Sec.

Hi all,

My son got 237, I'm wondering if it's a risk to apply for Anglican High, which has a lower cut off point of 239 for last year?

Or should I put Ngee Ann as first choice, with lower cut off point of 236.

Any thoughts, inputs or advice is appreciated.

Thanks ^^

You may want to refer to this list which shows 2014 cut-off pts of secondary school arranged in order. Average t-score seem to be higher this year so do take note that cop may be raised.
