Secondary School Cut off Point for Express 2023 ( Indicative)

 


The school posting is out.

Congrats to those who got into their school of choice. For those contemplating an appeal, we tabulated the Cut off Points for appeals. The information here is sourced directly from the respective schools. Take it as a reference and call the respective schools to confirm the Cut off Point for Appeal.

The schools for this list were based on COP 20 and below (2022 AL). As COP above 21 tends to have less volatility than in previous years, we omitted it from the list. Some schools on the list were unreachable at the time of print.


We compared the 2023 COP and the 2022 COP, and there were a few surprises. A few schools dropped +2 points, with only 1 from last year's list that had significantly improved ( Kuo Chuan Presbyterian School -2). 

This implies that this year's cohort may not fare as well as previous years. Another reason for the drop is that this is the Tiger year batch of students. Normally, birth rates tend to drop in the year of the Tiger, resulting in more school vacancies.

Actually its so stressful with the new system as the cop can change and we need to insert some luck depending on the cohort each year.

Save for a few schools, most schools kept COP or have higher COP making them easier to get in.

Do you have the indicative COP for NA 2023?

Thanks for the list. It is very useful. I am refreshing this page every few days to check out if there is any further updates.
Hence, just wanna check if those schools which are not listed above, will the author be updating?

Hi. We had only updated for schools with COP 20 and below from 2022. We will update with a more comprehensive list when COP is updated on MOE website in 2023.

Hi there, do you have data for NA and NT? Thank you.

Very interesting, but quite expected i think, the cut off points dropping. As this is the second year of AL scoring, i suspect last year MOE may have moderated actual marks to a curve to ensure that the banding they had published was close to actual. Anecdotally, many kids did worse than expected by 1 to 2 points, so the 2 points drop i think reflects actual performance. my DS did 3 points worse than targeted and vs prelims, as did many classmates and friends. so i suspect no moderation this year.
