Based on this year's P6 GEPers, the 80% rule is mainly applied to P6 SA1 results using the 4 main subjects. Those with HCL will be also asked to take the CL paper for which the result is used. As far as I know the 80% is quite strictly followed for GAT at RI i.e. 79.9% also need to take GAT. In our school, all those without GAT were offered regardless of interview. All who took GAT were given waitlist except 1 offered and 1 rejected. Largely the same group who were offered at RI were offered HCI. So for all P5 parents, please tell your kids P6 SA1 is very very important for DSA.

:welcome: notsokiasu mum, and thanks for your advice.


Thanks for sharing. :D

According to DS, in his P4 class only about 3 pupils scored an overall of 80% and above. Is this the norm? :|


I dont' think so. At P4, quite a few will score >80%. At least half, I would estimate.


I estimate is abt 1/3 of the class or lesser..

I saw a few copies at Popular Marine Parade some weeks ago. You might want to call them up before heading down, just to make sure books are still there

No choice. If you don't learn CCM now you'll still have to learn it in secondary school.

Guess it depends on the particular cohort and class.

Is this for SAP school too?

My dd actually asked to learn Malay. If school offers, then I can save on the fees :lol:
