Oh lol okay. I didn't mean it as an absolute requirement. Plus God knows how things were "a few years ago". Haha anyway just to clarify, what I said was a personal observation. People who on paper seem to be much more eligible (9A+, high koko marks) don't get in, but children of gov servants (teachers in particular for some reason) do. My observations are based on successful applicants from my own school btw.
Obviously this is all speculation. Don't take it too seriously. It's just that I don't agree that it comes down to "luck".
