What are the factors affecting the JC cut off points?

Bonus points for JC admission

Deducting O-Level bonus points from your gross (or raw) L1R5 aggregate score makes the JC cut off points easier for you to meet.

JC affiliation

Selecting a JC affiliated to your secondary school as your first choice in the JAE makes the affiliated JC’s cut off points easier for you to meet.
