We never expected her to get into a university at this stage and were thinking of it as a remote possibility after a diploma and working experience, so it's better than we expected.

It's indeed a pleasant surprise to be able to enter NTU. From RP, she leapt into NTU to do a degree.:rahrah: it's ok if she is is slow. Whether she does it in 4 or 5 years doesn't matter.
The important thing is to be happy.

My son just spent 1 month in SP. it's hectic and requires lots of discipline to want to do well. But he is happy with his course. I am happy for him. When in doubt, he will approach his lecturers.

"leapt" isn't the word I would choose! Maybe "clambered"... Anyway, RP was just a little side excursion between MI and NTU. I just hope she doesn't find university life too challenging.

i am also thinking of encouraging her to go poly but she doesnt know what she wants to do yet... she only aims to go JC at the moment. so now i am in a dilemma how to advise her.

Ya too many choice to decide in poly..DD doesnt know her interest yet. So she doesnt rule out jc.
