The proxy ranking for Singapore JCs are as compiled below. The ranking is based on the cut off points of JCs for their Science streams in the year 2012. The figures are as provided by MOE. According to website of VJC, not all students who achieved the minimum cut-off points were successfully admitted. Places in the JC may be over subscribed by eligible students. Admission to the 2-year JC courses go by the net L1R5 scores, after deduction for bonus points. CCA grades of A1 or A2 grant a 2-point deduction from the L1R5 and grades of B3 to C6 grant a 1 point deduction. Students with grades of A1 to C6 for both their first languages (English and a Higher Mother Tongue) are granted a further 2-point deduction from their L1R5 scores. Students from feeder schools who apply to their affiliated Junior Colleges as 1st or 2nd choices may be granted a 2-point deduction as well. The maximum points deductible per student is capped at 6. The Joint Admission Exercise occurs around early January each year. The student-selection process is stated by a reputable JC to be conducted by MOE. It is not clear how the staff of each JC may be involved in the process. View Secondary School Ranking 2013

For the 2013 joint admissions exercise, St. Joseph's Institution will conduct its inaugural JC1 intake. On a side note, it appears that the eventual L1R5 cut-off is really the result of the popularity of the Junior Colleges, or their perceived value-add. This is as opposed to the actual value-add that a student may experience. Rather than base your choice of Junior College purely on the cut-off point, you may want to consider the achievements and culture of the schools and their impact on your well-being way beyond graduation.
