Yes i understand your point. Infact, it is quite realistic. Though I don't see having a degree of whatever major is useless. You've given her your point of view then you've done your job in advising. Thank you so much for that 😊 I understand that her method is so so so out of the norm. If it was me, i might retake A levels again too. But if I still don't make it then I would try PT degree at other local uni. But the problem is, that's me.. and i'm not reishi.

If her parents are okay with it and the situation consents then just do it. She have very strict parents if you were to read her posts since the first acceptance window. So we should consider her stress too. She already said that the PT courses in SUSS looks okay due to the info she receives from some of you here. Thus, who knows she might evaluate her choices again and choose to go that path? It is totally up to her.

This forum is for us to inform, advice and encourage one another. So really thank you for your opinion and let her do the rest. 😊 Let's stop here okay? Goodnight! 💖

If she is rich, and her family is able to support her nonsense, so be it.
But Considering that she's from a financially disadvantaged background, that is another raise to the stupid level.

Your heart, body, or soul doesn't feed themselves. There are little difference in getting employment between getting the most useless degree among all other fields from a prestigious uni, or a private uni, considering that zero times zero is still zero.
Anw, I've given my advise. She want to shove things down her throat anot also not my problem. The sooner she wakes up, the better. Seen to many pretentious and delusional ppl like her.

well i am ok with $1k/month, so long i have enough for food and bills but i do think thinking ahead and working hard are both good skills to have if you intend to fill a niche in the market, which is what most successful entrepreneur have. honestly, if you were to choose between working for $3-4k/month and work from 9-5pm, letting the computer runs itself and earn $1.2k/month with almost 0 effort, i think i would take the second option as a more viable option

if people want to do what they do, earning less or more is up to them.. money isn't the only factor to determine what you want to do. And besides, if she thinks going to NTU she can get more/different resources to further her studies compared to other unis,nothing wrong with that...

then again, it's true that gov sector only hires 2nd upper hons and above from recognized unis,gov sector work usually prioritize work life balance,so almost 0 OT and go home on time. Private sector doesn't care as much but they don't pay for OT. Employment rate may not be reflective of people with different hons.

Yup agree, we need more of such delusional people so that competition in the industry will be not so stiff. Hence, there are people taking all kinds of jobs from different category, from lower paying to higher paying. Isn't it right razorlala, don't you think so?

I honestly feel that you shldnt be taking things so far. Lol. I rly feel that the topic shld just end here. Seems like you are making a mockery out of reishi's situation so please just stop this conversation.

But razorlala mentioned that getting a Arts and social sci degree in local or private degree makes not much of a difference? Is it true for this course, since there is no particular expertise or skills the students have been equipped?

I guess Tourism and third language are not very related? Which course in particular are you looking at?

Exactly. If you want to disagree with reishi, so be it. Everyone has their own way of leading their lives, but there's no point mocking people, doesn't help anything. At this point some of you are just being plain mean.

I'm an A Level student who scored about 71.25RP grades ABC for my H2s but S for my GP, which I believe is the main reason why I'm unable to get into business course besides the fact that my H2 did not meet the IGP. However, as I'm really interested in doing business I've appealed to NTU and have applied to retake A levels as well as my back-up.

I'm looking to specialize Banking Finance or Business Analytics...

Your grades are extremely far off from any biz, acc, or econs courses. Guess you should consider NTU enginneeing courses. Biz, Acc or econs related courses require high requirements. Don't be like few of them here retake A levels for the sake of entering a particular course. Retaking has a lot of factors to weigh in before making this decision.

I am looking at FASS's Japanese Studies. I cleared the highest level Japanese proficiency test and has the certificate. Appealed to nus saying that it's my dream to be a translator and I wanna contribute to NUS' Japanese Society Club

obviously there's a difference between the degrees if they are obtained from different unis, why do you think timeshighereducation and qs university rankings exist... it's just that smaller firms don't have the luxury to carefully pick who they are hiring so to them their expectations aren't high

Very high chance. Since you have so many achievements related to your course. I guess they will see your true passion towards this course. Good luck in your path to become a Jap-Eng translator.
