Useful Advice

  • Please make wise and realistic choices that you are ELIGIBLE for (discuss with your parents, ask your teachers)
  • If you put down a first choice you are not eligible for, you may not automatically get your second choice
  • Once a class is full and there are no available resources, you may not get a combination even though you qualify for it

Useful Advice

  • Ensure that you work hard towards your choice combination
    • don’t appeal for a subject and say you are very interested in it when you don’t even meet the cut-off point!
  • If you do not qualify for any of the choices you have put down, the school will assign the choice that is best for you based on your overall S2 results and teachers’ recommendation.
