So for SAP schools with COP of 6, if one is a 6 pointer (without HCL), don’t be too happy, because your child’s name may not even be inside the computer balloting system ?!
So for HCI, last place to be balloted between 6 pointers who scored Dist in HCL, and if only 5 got Dist, then your child’s chances of being chosen is 1/5.
But for RI, assume also last vacancy for 6 pointers to ballot, say if there are 500 students with 6 points applying, your kid’s chance of being balloted in is 1/500.
P/S: I suppose the logic should work somewhat like this, just that the figures I used are for illustration purposes only. MOE only briefly mentioned that when two persons tie, Dist in HCL has priority over Merit, but never go into the details.
