Re: Cost of not fulfilling a government scholarship/award

The key difference between a scholarship in NIE and a scholarship in other degree is that sponsoring a NIE students means not only paying the tuition fee, but also paying the student the starting salary of a teacher for a year. If a teacher-to-be does not qualify to be a teacher in the end, then the...

Re: Subject Combination in JC

DS's has two friends with 3 pointers. Both applied RI. One got in and the other didn't. What other do they based on? CCA? For same nett points at COP cases, here is the official rule: step 1. citizenship, SC>PR>foreigners. step 2. balloting. For example, if there are 70 SCs + 20 PRs + 10 foreigners...

Re: Appeal to HCJC

Even 5 pointers who fail to be admitted into NJC (NJC only takes partial 5 pointers by balloting) will not be able appeal in. The 20 vacancies approximately for appealing cases are distributed to about 10 niche CCAs. You need to have a sound record and a list of achievements in the CCA that NJC is i...

Re: HC or NJC?? Help! urgent

Try HC as 1st choice so that it will be very easy to appeal in. i know that but theres also the risk of ending up with neither NJC nor HCI if i put NJC as second choice.. 1. There is a very low risk if you put NJC as the 2nd choice - if the COP of NJC improves by 1 point this year. 2. Appealing to ...

Re: Help Needed Urgently

Hi, First of all, I must say JC curriculum is not easy, as it is specifically designed for the top 20% of secondary school graduates in Singapore. Regarding the retaining rate, I think this year MOE has made it very strict to all the JCs. Those top JCs, like RJC, HCJC, VJC, NJC ... should not have m...

Re: Uni degree advice needed

1. Interest comes first before everything else. If your boy chose it because he likes it, let it be. 2. High salary = long/stressful working hours, this is true for most of the highly rewarded jobs. 3. Many of the engineering firms accept graduates with accountancy background at certain position, li...

Re: Does one have to be a genius to do maths?

One needs to be a genius to score full marks at A level or equivalent, but needs not to be one to score an A.

Re: Straits Times - Why employers shun local graduates

True, I felt resilence is generally one of the most important values lacking in SCs. MOE is trying to revise the curricum and focus of education, however it takes time, probably 10 years, 20 years or even longer. If a citizen resists stress in life, he/she can complain or use his/her power in terms ...
