It's stated that ss with only be graded for P6 and no marks will be reported.
However in my son's reportbook ss is still reported in marks eventually and the ss marks was taken into consideration when they count the overall average.


no lah..only English, CL, Maths and Science took up the overall marks ..thats why the full marks is 400 mah... :roll:

DSA Schools don't take into account SS results.

Unfortunately from the info i gathered it may be even tougher to gain entry to HUHS as compared to RI thru DSA for GEP boys.


No, he's in Henry Park. That's what I thought so as well. But the journey is really far. I brought him to RI last Sat for Science competition. That took us 1hr 15mins to reach there!

That's a really long commute. Imagine doing this everyday twice a day for the next six years.

Hi ngbrdad,

Secondary GE? You referring to SBGE? NUSH is one of them whereby they select kids base on maths result and observation in their half-day camp. So all enroll in NUSH is considered SBGE?

To me travelling distance is very important. I would prefer my kid to spend less than 20 min per trip is possible.
For people who stay in the west, if you want to let a GEP boy continue SBGE in secondary school, the options are only NUHS and ACSI.
HCI in Bukit Timah is still not as far as RI.
But for ACSI I have some reservation about the influence of the rich kids......
