  • JC Mergers Possible COPs Implications

    All other JCs planned with an increase in enrolment compared to 2017 JC1 intake

    Sufficient capacity to cater to demand for JC places

    May result in an increase in Cut-Off Points (COPs)

    COPs variations do not reflect on quality of schools; but is due to larger JC intakes and students choice patterns
