CGS also offers only Pure Science for their Sec 3 and 4 classes. CGS girls are generally well behaviour and the teachers are dedicated too.

Hi

Does anyone know what's the cut-off for 3rd language option for Japanese, French and German?

My DS scored 250 but was not offered. So 250 is not TOP 10%.
My dd is offered 2 options for 3rd Language ... Chinese or Arabic
I am curious as to why my dd is not offered other language choices?

Anybody encountered this now or before?

1) Fuhua (cop 232)
2) kranji (cop 229)
3) clementi town (cop 231)

Shld i swop choice 2 & 3 based on last year cop? will this lower his chance of getting into any of his top 3 schools of choice if I rank kranji as his third choice given he has higher chance of getting into this school? I heard the order of choice comes to play when there is a tie. Please advise. Thanks.
Yes you should swop 2 & 3. Unless you don’t want him to get into Clementi Town. If that’s the case U should leave it out completely.

S1 posting is by T score merit, down to the last decimal point; choice order does NOT matter at all. So people will list their schools in descending order of COP. It’s as simple as that.

Hi hi, can shed more light on why HCJC is #2 and RJC is #1? I am torn between the two. My boy prefers HCI (because of more friends going there) and I'm afraid that I'm missing out something. Thank you!

Nanyang Girls primary

As long as NYPS girls place #1 First choice NYGH under Affliation, if their T-score is any of the following minimum 3 combination :

- 247 (+3, for Higher Chinese), or

- 248 (+2, for Higher Chinese), or

- 249 (+1, for Higher Chinese), or

- 250 (never take Higher Chinese at PSLE, only took Normal Chinese)

As Nanyang Girls High is a SAP school, the (+1, +2, +3) Higher Chinese bonus points come into play, can be activated to use now.

As long as pupil able to hit 250 : NYPS girls (students) have priority under the Affliation scheme, to enter NYGH first.

That's why it is so good (important) to have affliation. 250, can enter Nanyang Girls High, in turn affliated to Hwa Chong Junior College, the #2 A-level Junior College in Singapore. #1 is Raffles Institution.


However, if affliated NYPS pupil score

248 (+1) : doesn't hit (reach) 250 yet, Sorry, cannot be admitted into NYGH, must choose other school instead.

Merit first. I don’t understand the part on listing it in orders of COP... ...and how affiliation works. Pls shed some lights! :scratchhead:

Let’s take a case example.

Student A (251)
Student B (249, Affliated to School A, Affliliated COP of 220)

Both made the same choices below Choices
1: School A (Affliliated),
COP: 251(non affiliated), 235 (Affliliated) Vacancy: 90 (3 classes of express)

2. School B (no Affiliated school),
COP: 250,
Vacancy: 90 (3 classes of Express)

3. 2. School C (no Affiliated school),
COP: 252
Vacancy: 240 (8 classes of IP)

Both kids prefer School A, B over School C due to proximity and CCAs offered.

Question 1:
How will this situation play out for Student A and Student B? Will they both end up in School C if many students with higher COP opt for both of them.

Question 2:
For School A, is that a cap for n how many % of affiliated students they can take in?

For example, all the girls (say 150 of them with lowest cop of 245) in NY Pri opt for NYGH.

Does it mean that it ‘easier’ to get into a TOP school with higher COP than an affiliated TOP school with lower COP?

Hazelmama, all affilitated students who put School A as 1st choice will get in as long as they meet the affiliated COP. The remaining places in School A are then allocated by merit to non-affiliated students. This will change next year when 20% of the vacancies are reserved for non-affiliated students.

It is rare for popular schools to only have 90 vacancies for Express stream. NYGH affiliated is 250 and the O level track is more of an option for students who have tried the IP program but can't do well enough so your example is not going to happen.
