Hi! hahaha My GPA is 3.42 and i'm a fresh graduate from NYP with no health care related background and experience. P.s I think SIT doesn't really filter their candidates based on academic performance hahaha

Yeah not sure where did it go wrong for me lol. Oh i did knew about the pcp last time from my physiotherapist, did contact wda but they state all the work experience during my poly days were not counted so I did not met the 2yrs work exp for pcp for now. But if i am not wrong, pcp does not affect the chance of getting into the allied health course?:s11:

PCP depend on supply & demand. When supply of applicants is low, they are willing to take in those who have less then 2 years of experience & even if part time jobs are counted too but at discount duration of experience.

However for any reason if you fail to graduate or serve the 3 years bond, you will much worst off cause of debts from liquidated damages & there is no such things as leniency. I advice you to pay your own school fees rather then take PCP sponsorship (Yes, it is a sponsorship & never a scholarship. They verbally sell it is scholarship but any document is stated as sponsorship).

For guys, your reservist is your own problem if you fail to get deferment & it is never the problem of WSG, School, sponsoring hospital. You will see more unfair terms in the sponsorship deed. Before you even see the sponsorship deed, sponsoring hospital may ask you to sign a Letter of Undertaking that you will pay for liquidated damages (Eg: S$1,000) if you decided not to take up the offered. Please note that the S$1,000 is for not taking up the offered PCP course & the amount for failing to graduate or serve the 3 years bond will be much more.

Wow, surprised that you're well informed in this matter too.

What he said is true and it does not only apply to PCP programs. It applies to any of the scholarships by MOH, such as the HMA/ HMS. You will need to pay $1000 liquidated fees if for any reason you're not able to take up the prescribed program. The main reason why I signed up for it is because of the financial and job security it provides. In my opinion, a 4 year bond, where the scholarship provides school fees, monthly stipend, overseas fees and settling down fees, I think it is worth it.

Kyoji83 07-05-2017 07:21 PM

I am jack of all trades but master of none.

Wish you pass out from the course & completed your bond.

Btw, get yourself a PhD if you intend to move up the ladder (Eg: consultant) cause it will become a norm soon.

Thanks for the sharing Kyoji83! Holding on to the terms and conditions of sponsorship while studying in an intense course sure is risky and stressful. Lucky i did save up enough for my uni in SG but a pity could not get in :s22:
