Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

Incidentally, my daughter’s friend who got in via DSA (and inspired her to target this top secondary school and get into their IP) eventually dropped back to O-level, while my daughter pressed on. IP has uncompromisingly rigorous academic requirements, and I believe that contributed to my daughter’...

Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

The SNGS-Cat High-SCGS IP has always gone to Eunoia. They were among the later IP programmes to start up (more came online at this time too, so it's not like they were the only one); the first Sec 1 intake should have been 2013 for JC2 in 2018. Oh! I’d always assumed the IP had been up and running ...

Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

I think some of the students are being distributed around a bit more every year too. ACS(I) via the IB is gaining popularity, and ACS(I) / MGS IP seem to have a strong following. Eunoia JC has also gone through four cycles of A Level results now and this (2022) is the third year of intake where stu...

Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

Yes on Econ. I've thought that kids could benefit from taking a humanities in Sec 3-4 that they can continue with in JC. The topics/content won't be cumulative per se, but you stick with the training and learn how to improve in this one subject vs. having to jump to something new in JC (or go back ...

Re: Couple that ran off with $32m

I think about that too. Probably somewhere in Thailand where they got taken in by one of their criminal friends. If they can lay low in rural Thailand they might have a chance of staying hidden for quite a bit longer, without the downside is they wouldn’t be able to spend any of their “hard earned m...

Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

I think the local (Singapore) law and med tracks have been selecting more and more kids from other sources besides RJC/HCJC. There's still a concentration (for scholarships too), both by interest and ability, but it seems they want to admit a broader pool of applicants. Poly grads into med have bee...

Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

Excellent points. I do agree with most of what has been said, though I must say I’ve always seen Econ as more of a science, especially with the way it is taught in local JCs. I’ve always seen it as a loophole to allow science-brained students to succeed, since typically those who are very good at s...

Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

I’ve checked into this before, completing secondary school here is deemed equivalent to earning a high school diploma in the US. There are many universities (not the elite, but top 30-50) that outright recognize O-Levels for entry to their school, especially in the Midwest. Purdue is a good example...

Re: Primary 1 registration exercises - game changer

I'm surprised Michigan will take just the O Level (I know it works elsewhere), although they definitely do. Historically, Michigan's student body and post uni placement (for business) are a lot more national than most midwestern schools. i.e. maybe not quite the draw as the UC schools but it is sti...

Re: Neighbors renovation is driving me crazy

In my condo approval is needed and the notices pasted in a few location. If they run out of time, they get an extension. As much as I hate it there is probably no better way than do it longer hours in less days. This is also because of neighbors living within the same corridor - dust is everywhere ...

Re: Neighbors renovation is driving me crazy

Pasting a notice on your front door is the rule in my condo. The notice is supposed to indicate the exact dates and timings and is signed by the condo manager indicating that approval has been sought. Nothing in the lobby? Usually we have it in the lobby so that everybody in the building knows what...

Condo's almost always require a notice to be put up. I'm sure it's required by the BCA.
I’m not too clear on whether it is part of an actual regulation, but I understand it to have been the norm thus far, at least in my condo.

Re: Neighbors renovation is driving me crazy

If pasting a notice is the norm and if there isn't one in this case, I'd probably check with the MA if I were you. I dont know about condo. But HDB is a must. Normally 1 notice on the ground floor beside lift, another 1 beside the unit door. [edit] Found this Add HDB information https://www.hdb.gov...

Re: Can agent represent tenant and landlord?

Right. An agent can, however assist any one party in selling their property and then renting/buying a new one. That’s an entirely different story.
