Hey.. Everyone's struggles are different. Do respect one another. Even if one person did something bad to you, repay them with kindness and not hate. That way, the world would be a better place :look:

Whatever we've been through, good or bad, there are always a reason behind it. So as good friends in this forum, let's just support one another okay? It's okay to voice out opinions but do so nicely and appropriately.

She wants to major in that field due to her passion then so be it. We will just wish her all the best :D Who knows she will work as an english teacher? An author? A tuition teacher? There is still life ahead no matter what major you are in. It is up to ourselves to control our life and choose our path. Who knows one day due to her passion and hard work, she ends up being our boss? Have a blessed day everyone.

That's not the point. The point is, to me, she just simply wants to get a degree from a top uni, even if it means wasting 2yrs.
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.

Law also is oversaturated. Engineers no need to say, FT's are being brought in droves. Accountancy is facing threat of automation and oversaturation too, not to mention the work life that kills you.

Business is too general of a degree etc. It's really how one uses university to springboard into the working life. I don't see how productive it is to be bashing on an entire faculty when it encompasses many areas of study.

I can say engineer is useless since can just bring in FT's who are cheaper, better, faster but I'm not considering the different engineering fields am I like comp engineering, civil engineering, EEE and so on.

I believe you are from FASS as you mentioned previously. You have been mentioning the cons of every other courses. So hence what is your view about your own home faculty? What are the advantages about being in FASS in terms of job prospects, salary, as well as employment. It is generally very true when razorlala has brought up the Graduate Employment Survey.

What area/course in FASS are you pursuing? Are you pursuing it based on good career prospects, potential high salary, interests or passion to serve the community?

So how does Arts and Social Sci is better than other courses when you mentioned about the cons of all other courses?(When it is an undeniable fact as it is clearly shown in the employment survey stats). It is good if you could clarify since it is your home faculty?

I feel that what you say is really what I am thinking when I see the replies she gives . BUT advice given and it's up to her if she want to take it so let's stop it here . I mean in this world we need more delusional people so there will be lesser people to fight w us getting a job :p

Eh please lah. Different people different opinions but sometimes,somethings are meant to be kept to oneself. Once you say it out,your gonna hurt someone rly badly. Besides,you are not her mother or father to "wake" her up if thats what you are trying to do. We are here to support each other. Dont downplay what other's passions/dreams are just because you feel smth smth smth. You are not her, she is not you, you dont know what she really is going through or what she is rly thinking about. So please,be more considerate about what you say out.

Lost31732 03-06-2017 11:55 PM

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! 💖

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?

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?

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.

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.

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

But he mentioned for this particular course (social sciences-where he claimed to be most useless), is there a difference in getting a local or pte uni?

Hi, yes I do understand where I'm coming from and have questioned myself many times if I'm actually going to retake As for the sake of getting into this one course and not be open about other courses.

As I know of a few people who have the same grades as me except for GP who got into NBS, I wanted to give it a shot myself as NBS has been one of my goals that I set for myself and I don't want to give up easily. This may sound as though I'm very fixed on business, but I personally feel people shouldn't give up on what they aim for without trying all the opportunities available.

I do appreciate your rationale for warning me about retaking As just for the sake of retaking. I hope I wouldn't need to as I know the workload isn't going to be easy, especially without much resources..

So what do you intend to do? If your appeal to Biz got rejected, will you accept other courses or retake As?

What is the first thing you would think about if u fail to get into Biz this yr?

It's actually not that far off other than GP?? My friend got into NTU biz with BBC and E for GP. The poster's grades for his/her H2s can actually make it into NTU biz/econs and SMU biz/econs for sure, but like the person said it's probably the S for GP which affected his/her chances.

U sure BBC for ntu biz? I thought the requirements was AAB/C (80RP)? Unless your friend got in by DA, or else it is almost impossible since it is so far off?

Even tho the highest level is defined as 'native level', my Japanese proficiency is the about the same as a typical SG Chinese's proficiency in Mandarin except that I can read Japanese articles without looking up the dictionary often. I started learning only 3 years ago and passed the exam 6 months ago so it is possible. Study every day and make Japanese part of your every day life:) I just had my german class today and got overwhelmed haha

Wow very impressed with you learning multi-languages. You can travel to countries and speak with the locals as well as able to read articles, books as well as watch videos without subs. Very envious.. Can you speak Korean too, since your username is a korean name?

Maybe the friend got BBC/E and AA for PW & H1. It'll be 80RP

Then that is different from his case, he got only 71.25RP.

What is the first thing you would think about if u fail to get into Biz this yr?

I've accepted NTU Mathematical Sciences already and would probably go there if my appeal does get rejected. Retaking As has been on my mind as a last resort and I'm still considering if I should having approximately slightly more than 150 days it is definitely a tough decision. However, if I do intend to retake As I believe I would have the determination to pull through it and try my best and see how it goes from there.

The first thing I would think about if I fail to get into Biz this year would definitely be whats the second best option which would help me to head towards what I'd be interested to do which would be banking and finance and business analytics, which according to the course curriculum is covered in Mathematical Sciences though not as in depth as business itself.

[EDIT] Also for those who are talking about the possibility of people missing the IGP grade to get into business, I myself feel it is possible as I've checked w my school teachers as per the national standard this year it has dropped quite a fair bit as compared to the previous years, hence I'm trying my best to get into this course.

Wow very impressed with you learning multi-languages. You can travel to countries and speak with the locals as well as able to read articles, books as well as watch videos without subs. Very envious.. Can you speak Korean too, since your username is a korean name?

I learnt a bit of Korean, only enough to say this is a table and stuffs like that. Realised that German would probably be more fun and lucrative here in SG at least so I signed up for it^^ First,I need my degree though

With AA for PW and H1 is 75 maximum for BBC/E(GP)

you are comparing a normal working adult with successful entrepreneurs. how many % are these 'successful entrepreneurs'? you so confident you this small % ar?
these ppl just got a bunch of good luck. hardwork is hardly relevant here, cause there are ppl that work harder than them but still sh!t.

1k a month? unless you are planning to stay with your parents and not get married, good luck with that.
and ya, keep dreaming hor. leave the computer on and earn 1.2k a month. you got some special lobang ar? :s13:

and rly la, buay kan is buay kan 1. repeating the exact same content for one whole year, doing nothing else, and still come out like sai. what makes you think such a person has the capability for graduates school? dont say dog eye see ppl low la hor, this 1 is chi xin wang xiang. 1 needs to know their limits. say until got fire got dragon, simi prelim is A student, a lvl come out C, somemore twice(?). noone cares how good you are previously. ppl only care about the results.
also, if one sibeh satki like the flash liddat can see the future, and she sees herself as a masters/phd student in NTU, do note that first class hons from SIM also get to join NTU graduates school.

dont care wat hons ppl get. it is for a fact that arts degree graduates have the lowest % of being employed, making arts degrees the most useless course for employment.

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.

my point is simple. for example, when there are no companies wanting to hire a bachelor in psychology, the chance of employment with said degree is 0.

so no matter which uni you graduate from, a top ranked uni doesnt fare better than a lower ranked one, considering that multiples of 0 is still 0.

understand?

these ppl would then have to end up looking for a completely unrelated job, which effectively renders their degree useless. well, other than impressing employers that you spent 4years studying for a degree that no employer is looking for.

Oh yes my bad! I think you can just give it a try (no harm appealing anyways). But have you gotten an interview yet? Since you asked about interviews and written test

Yep! I have been given the opportunity for an interview which got me really excited and ya there is no harm trying right! That's why I was wondering if anyone who has gone through this phase could help me out it would mean a lot (:

Currently in NTU Mathematical Sciences Yr 1( or yr 2 when the break ends). Taking minor in finance as well as getting in the business analytic track. Actually I had a very similar A level result with GP S lol. Didn't have any "dream" course so I just chose the one that I had some interest and could get in easily. Couldn't comment much about my current course now though since year 1 is just the basic stuff.
