for Maths olympiad organise by NUS high all geppers can opt to take part or not too likewise for others. But for Science, usually the teacher will do the selection.

Mine too. Know all the results except HMT compo and SS MCQ.

Lowest in % should be SS OEQ, 29/35. Dd did quite well lah considering the class didn't have regular Math and SS teachers because they were on maternity leave.
