In the 2022 and 2023 Joint Admissions Exercise, Nanyang Junior College’s cut-off score was six for arts and five for science, putting it in almost the same league as top schools like Raffles Institution (RI) and Hwa Chong Institution (HCI), which both have a cut-off point of five for arts and four for science. NYJC, whose cut-off scores have been improving in the last decade, is now the top JC that does not offer the integrated programme (IP).
NYJC’s A-level results have also seen a corresponding improvement in the last 10 years. In 2013, two in 10 students scored 85 rank points or better, and 15 per cent scored distinctions in at least three H2 subjects. In 2022, six in 10 scored at least 85 rank points, and half the students obtained distinctions in at least three H2 subjects.
In 2023, NYJC will launch a science research programme, a collaboration with the National University of Singapore (NUS) and three secondary schools, where students will get to work with scientists on projects. Under the DSA scheme, students seek admission to schools based on their talent in sports, co-curricular activities or specific academic areas.
