Question

Answer

Hi, i think even ACJC personnel won’t be able to shed any light on your question, unfortunately, since they also will not know what could be the final outcome. Moreover, with the uncertainties resulting from the merged JCs, there could well have been some changes to the ball game.

One thing i am very sure of is that the selection process does not go by the priority of your selections. It goes by the L1R5 score just like what they do for PSLE T-score.

That means if the COP is 10 and you apply with L1R5 10 but put your desired school as the 3rd choice for example, you will still beat another applicant who put it as a 1st choice with L1R5 11 unless you have already been allocated the school you put down as your 1st or 2nd choice.

It follows the logic: the one who has a more favourable L1R5 takes precedence until the last vacancy is filled. If that last place is taken by someone with L1R5 9, then by the time it comes to your turn, your 4th option will be considered instead, assuming there is also no more vacancy for your 1st and 2nd choices.

Hope that helps?

Hi Ms June, 

It may help to take into consideration the fact that ACJC is affiliated with all Methodist schools in Singapore. 

This would mean that all things equal, someone from an affiliated school effectively has an L1R5 of 8 points vs. your daughter’s 10 points. [Due to affiliation -2 points]

If your daughter is from an affiliated school, do take note of the fact that she can benefit by placing ACJC as her 1st choice, as some JCs only offer the full 2 bonus points if the candidate places them as first/second choice 🙂

You can read more about affiliations or check which schools are affiliated here:

Thanks Renny . However, my daughter is keen to study in ACJC. I was wondering if it would be appropriate to put it as 1st choice with a score of 10 points. Second choice being Eunoia, which she has better chances of getting through.

I would suggest Eunoia JC. But if Ur daughter is the self motivated hardworking and outgoing type go ACJC for the culture.
