    Go NJC and skip the O's. O's is a waste of time. Alternatively, go SCGS and/or MGS to network with rich families. They'll have in job search, career opportunities next time. Unless of coz, you're already well off then she'll already be leading a socialite sorta life next time.

    if your child has what it takes, go for RV. Better to have two certs than just one, it looks much better on the CV to have two certs and some employers overseas look at 'O' levels as well as 'A' levels so in order to save time explaining you are on an acelerated programme blar blar blar, might as well just do 'O' levels and 'A' levels and excel in both.

    Bro, understand you are in education industry and mind to share do you know RV's students need to take O level eventhough they are under IP program? Am asking becos my understanding is that IP students need not to take O. Correct me if my understanding is different from fact. Thanks.

    My gal PSLE score 256+1.
    Trying for Dunman High. COP last year was 257.

    Problem is now I live in the east.
    2 years time shifting to the west.
    So her 2nd choice is RV.
    Btw, RV has open house today 830 to 1230.
    I am going.

    If your kid wants NJC, just apply for it.
    If can't get in, can always appeal later as there might be people giving up.

    I wish my gal would consider NJC cos it is in the centre and it won't matter where we stay.

    RV is all IP, so no need to take O level. Year 6 take A level.
    Some schools like ACS(I), and from next year, VS and Cedar have both O level and IP.

    congrats to all parents.

    my advice is let your child make his/her decision. you can probably go through the pros and cons with them, give your views about the schools, and also listen to their evaluation process.

    that's was how my Dad raised me in the past, always getting my opinion at a young age and pushing me to make decisions for myself. so encourage them to make the decision on their own as you guide them along....these decision-making skills go a long way....then next time they will make very good investment decisions!

    if you want my opinion - NJC or RV? Go read up on the school values, motto, culture etc. Talk to parents about the type of education their children experienced. Which school values strike a chord in your heart most? Is your kid outgoing/studious/sporty etc and what environment fits him/her most?

    cheers!
