Reason for choosing RGS :

1. English "advantage" and perceived job hunting advantage

2. Perceived more well known among US unis

3. Cross-cultural exposure

Reason for choosing RGS :

1. More English speaking environment. I believe in Singapore and the World the predominant language is still English for our next generation. The job interview in Singapore is not going to be carry out in Chinese overnight.
