I think the arrogant attitude is more in part from their upbringing than to be from the programme itself. I have not seen any part of the curriculum inculcating such an attitude and I don't believe MOE has this intend as well.

Not all system are perfect. Even at older age in universities, we see dropouts too. In top universities like Harvard, Cambridge and Oxford too, do the sudents going to these top uni feel proud, confident and arrogant when they join initially? Yes, I think so. But do they all graduate eventually? I mean 100% passing rate. The answer is No.
