Just to share this old post on the dilemma of choosing Express vs Normal Academic (for borderline PSLE scores). Both choices have pros and cons and hence must be pondered carefully.

Here are some advices from people who have experience:
First opinion says that N(A) in a good school is better:

i myself is living example
in the end my parent chose express at neighborhood school

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”
This post (from Hardwarezone) made a good argument of why express stream…
