I remember in the past, only students from affiliated pri schools can get in. Else, very hard to get in (the Barker rd one).

But you sure you can choose whether to go NA or Express? If student qualifies for Express, doubt MOE will allow him to go NA instead.

If it's borderline case (between NA and Express), I think it's better to choose NA in better school lor. Cos I heard if NA student performs well enough in Sec 1-2, he could switch to his school's express stream.

None of those in bold are considered good schools by anyone on the street.

Think only Chung Cheng High school can pass. Some of these on the list produce alot of the brightest talents in Changi Chalet.

Good schools don't have N(A).

agree on that. probably the best school money can buy in singapore if you discount the international schools.

NA in good school


i myself is living example


in the end my parent chose express at neighborhood school

in the end that school is a shiat school. i cannot keep up with studies.

by secondary 2 i drop to NA

then stuck with the lousy neighborhood school and my whole life got ruin until now



if i can go back time i sure chose NA at good school
aiya cant blame the school can only blame ourselves. if we study harder last time. got this guy from jurong west sec go all the way to us study and become student union president, can give a speech to introduce obama.
