This morning I saw ST's headline about a 13 yo boy trying for Uni and I immediately thought of Ainan's case.
As I read further, the contrasts couldn't be more glaring and the unspoken thrust of the headlined article couldn't be more obvious.
How can anyone not be skeptical that ST is free press? :wink:

Hey, I didn't see it leh. Do you have a link to this? DD wants to go uni in June, she is also 13, but DH is against it. I am now in between the two. Would love to read about this case...

It doesn't mean that he would get into the local u for certain, esp since he's interested in applying for the medical school. He took A-levels tho' (thru British Council, not MOE).

Here's part of the article:
http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNew ... 86723.html

Interestingly, I wonder why the article only mentions that he is a "former" student of Rosyth, but fails to mention that he is a CURRENT student of NUS High???

If I'm not mistaken, he's also a GEP student.

They are going to pull out all for the stops for him IF he qualifies for NUS medical school.
:wink: u know my drift?
It will also be good for people like 2ppaamm and kids having an extra avenue after this publicity.

I like the tone of this boy and the qualifications much better. He is more 'real'. Therefore, NUS is more open. Seems all's ok in this case so far.

What is the purpose of jumping so many steps? Cost cutting? Are they usually coached by their own parents from young age? Would you want to see a doctor who is so young?

I actually removed my comments, you are very fast. Thought I'd not talk about it today... But here's a link that we discussed last month. http://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/conte ... university I could not find the link to the forum, but it's with the tertiary part.
