Which JC to choose / Which JC is good?
Choosing a JC is a big decision that would impact the next 2 years of a student’s life. It is important not to choose a JC based on JC Cut Off Points alone. Lower JC Cut Off Points just means that JC is popular and has many people wanting to enter it, it does not mean it is better. Our tutor attended RJC, one of the top JCs in Singapore, yet he can honestly say that in terms of teaching, RJC may not be significantly better than other JCs. Most of the effort and work put in needed to ace the exams depends on the student himself, no matter which JC you attend. A suitable tutor will be helpful in clarifying doubts and teaching tips and tricks not taught in school.

The thing about elite top JCs is that they tend to teach extra material that is out of the syllabus. While this is good for general knowledge, it actually means that you are mostly on your own (rely either on self-study or tuition) to study the stuff that are actually examined in the A level syllabus, since it is less emphasized in school.
Do consider factors like the school environment, location, and your studying preferences when choosing a JC. Although Singapore is small, traveling across the island by public transport can take up to 4 hours a day (to and fro), which can be better used for study or even rest.
