Does anyone know if MGS IB accepts student from another IP school during Y3 admission? What is the rate of admission? And what is the number of students from MGS O levels successfully transferred to IB at Y3?
Yes they do accept students from other IP schools. Interview, essay and academic results.

Contemplating between Nan Hua High & Catholic High (O level) as first & second choice. My boy’s score is 250. Any comparison or feedback for these 2 schools? Thanks in advance!

MKS, this article:-
https://mothership.sg/2015/10/junior-co ... j-and-hci/
may be of help explaining affiliation. Scroll to the table called Computation of Bonus Points, see No4.

If you Google JAE Information Booklet 2019, you can find an updated table (similar to that one posted in mothership) on Pdf Page21.

nobody pre-set the T-score to qualify for IP.

Based on historical COP data, 252 has a good chance of getting into the IP courses at TJC, SJC or RV.
But if this year's cohort did very well (hypothetical situation, dun scare yourself huh), it is possible tat 253 is the minimum COP to get into any IP course, leaving students with score of 252 unable to get into any IP school.
This being said, does that mean that someone who scores less than 250, for example
240 - 249 can also choose IP in their choices?
As JC students studying in Eunoia Junior College at temporary Mount Sinai site is ready to shift into awesome, brand new premises at Bishan Park, end of this year (2019),
probably, COP to join Sec 1 2020 (IP) into (SCGS, St Nick and Catholic High) may rise


last year (2018) batch COP for

St Nick (IP) = 255


Catholic High (IP) = 254


SCGS (IP) = SCGS (OP) = 252


====================


St Nick (OP) = 253

Catholic High (OP) = 251

If based on Prelim results (Total aggregate x 0.75), How far is the PSLE results compared to Prelim? Can someone share some statistic? Mine is +14
My youngest child is +40.
I find it strange that teachers like to use this predictor. It does no good whether prediction is high or low.
Thankfully his older sibs were all +30-+40
Otherwise he wld be so demoralised.
Are they in the same Pri sch?
Does it mean this Pri sch set tough prelim papers?

Both my boys prelims to psle were 0.72.
Yes they are all from the same pri sch. A small unknown nbh school : )
Their sch papers are not particularly hard but we do find the other school papers pretty doable.
They don’t really bother with their school’s prelims. Just treat it like a practice. My boys will just anyhow write their essays and get 24-25/40 for prelim.
My children are like this in sec n JC also.
They only focus when necessary. Very bad attitude I must say.
When I saw my oldest JC prelim results, I was prepared for him to redo his A levels.
Raising such kids is not good for my heart.
