All results + Meet-the-parents

I have got back all my results. In the order of merit.

H1 GP Paper 1=33/50 Paper 2=30.5/50 Total=63.5 B
H2 Physics=62 B
H2 Maths=48.5 E
H1 Econs Case Study= 16/30 Essay=11/25 Total=48.7 E
H2 Chemistry=42 S


As you can see, my GP is my best subject. Complete ownage! Dunno where is the distant second. Its ironic that its because of GP that some can't get to eat their much coveted spring rolls. Nvm, there are still many tries before the A-Levels. Practice makes perfect for everyone. That includes GP.

Nevertheless, I would say it was because of luck. I sure dunno how the hell I scored that on a topic I have never expected to work on. My Paper 2 results is quite consistent with my expectations. 33/50 for essay is pushing the limits of my capabilities. If I get another 33 or better for my next essay, it will really be godlike!

Our GP teacher Ms Shahida told me that I was actually capable for much better results. I should actually put in more effort and getting an A could be a closer possibility than I thought. Well, currently it seems to be more distant from me. I feel its just another upward fluctuation that resulted in my current marks. Its much harder through. Unlike science subjects, its not about getting another question correct. Soring better for GP is like surmounting magnitudes similar to the Richter scale (measured in powers of 10).

It turns out that the PCM monopoly has stabilised at those three. HH owned the Econs with Chwee and I settled for second and third respectively. Chwee lost by one mark to HH and I lost to Chwee by 0.43 marks.

So what? H1 subjects only mah. The main thing is still the three H2s. And that is the real filling of the spring rolls. Those H1 subjects just decide how appealing those spring rolls will look.

--------------------------------------------------

I have put up this section on the request of some of my classmates who were lazy to attend it. This meet-the-parent dialogue session was conducted by the school with representatives from the 3 main local universities (NUS, NTU and SMU).


Brief intro to NYJC.

Student population and "quality".

Tips to get good results.

Key dates to remember.

The QnA session starts.

All the representatives refused to reveal the grades cut off for each particular course as usual. They stressed that it is due to the overall subscription rate to each course that will decide if one will make it in.

SMU was of course the most unique local university. Being small (with a annual intake of just 1700), they can thoroughly screen each applicant through interviews and aptitude tests. He claimed that academic grades only comprise 2 of the 5 factors they look for in a potential student. Its how one carries oneself in front of a panel on interviewers that carries a heavier weight.

For those who think GP is unimportant. Think again. If one fails it, its up to a university's discretion whether to admit you anot. Even if they do, one has to pass a mandatory English exam before entry. Failing that, compulsory English modules have to be taken throughout your course.

GP is "unofficially" given a higher weighting in Humanities (Arts and Social Sciences), Business and Law faculties for obvious reasons. Potential applicants to these courses, do not understate its importance.

Finally, just do your best and score well lah. Liddat, you will have more choices!
