Hi there

marigoldhl is not the moderator. I am the resident moderator of the Academic Section. You may want to use the search function if you are looking for the undergrad scholarship thread. If you cannot find it, you can always start one

I hope you have a good time here. All the best.

Brightsparks forum provides a useful list of undergrad scholarship providers with details but hardly any discussions.

KiasuParents forum is occupied by a few upper class old hens who are blowing smoke at each other with their darling sons (DDs) and darling daugthers (DDs). These DSs and DDs are from "good JCs" like RJ, HC, ACJC, etc with their straight As and overseas endowed CCAs. Travel distances from Unis to their homes at Leedon Park or Namely Avenue are also critical factors in their choice of courses. The hoi polio from HDB "dwellings" with "so so" poly diplomas do not exist in their exotic circle. Amazingly (maybe not so), these atas forumers' quest for a scholarship is not for funding but the associated prestige and opportunities to be accepted into the "upper echelon society".

So .. here I am from the societal "bottom of the barrel", in the "needy" category of heartland dwellers, hoping to avoid the need to compete with 'exercising' old ladies in cardboard box collection to fund my uni studies. Hence the increasing interest for a scholarship that provides good 'bread'.

Good morning, dear Jada.

Just used your suggestion to check IGP history and found that Comp Info/Sec did not exist in AY 2014/15. So it was born in 2015/16. A two year old baby.

What prompted me to look at the history was the establishment in 2016 of the NUS/Singtel $42.8 million NUS-Singtel Cyber Security Research and Development Laboratory. It normally takes more time for such moves.

Thank you.

Dear darksiedluv, thank you for your very prompt attention and alert.

For BSc IS, the cgpa is 3.54 to 3.96.

Is it normal for application to open so soon? February 2018 is embedded in my mind.

Kiasu.

Is it a good strategy to apply for your dream course in all Big 3s?

What's the downside, if any? Please.

Yes you should! If one fails, you can fall back on another.
There's nothing to lose by applying to all 3 uni's
Good luck!

Will do that in November pending full release of all examination result related issues excluding semester 5 CGPA, which is already published in all polytechnics. By then hopefully, IGP for 2018/19 should also be available from the 3 unis. Thank you.
