Which path to choose?

Postby mezier » Mon Nov 12, 2012 11:03 pm

I am finishing my O levels soon this week but I have no idea whether to go poly or JC. I want to study radiography and not sure which path I should go. If I go poly, I can study radiography in a private university but it's very costly. If I go JC, then after A levels can get a diploma in radiography from NYP and then go overseas upgrade to a degree in 1 year. But it's also expensive to study overseas but I guess it's still cheaper than the one in Singapore.

I've always wanted to go poly but after knowing that the course for radiography in university is about $75k, I'm not sure if I should go JC or not. I know very well that my parents can't afford so much..... But I'm worried if I don't score well for A levels, I'll have nothing to fall back upon....

Can anyone give me some suggestions?

Can you go to poly to do a diploma & get scholarship from the hospital for your degree?

I've checked. The scholarships hospitals like SGH are only for certain Diploma courses. And those diploma courses requires A levels.

In my opinion, you should take A level then go to NYP as what you already know.
