It does make a difference in the civil service. Dip holders start from low 2k. Degree holders start from low 3k. Difference of 1k per month
Are you in civil service now?

was a civil servant for 8 years. now working part-time.

i mid-30s even worse. 2006 was the last time i studied, b4 entering NS

for SUSS PT, if u are above mid-20s age, u belong to the 5% or 10% minority age group in your class.

if u single and no family / financial commitment, can give further studies a shot. dont be like me liddat, wait until so long. during my poly days, no such thing as bank / tuition fees loan. so i thought same for uni. how wrong i was. really a pity as both of my parents became overage for bank guarantor.

money ($$) can always earn back, as long as u are able-bodied and below 50yo. but time n education waits for no one. u try, did your best, but failed. ok, at least your life no regrets. or u prefer to think when u hit your 40s/50s "what if i had taken a degree earlier? would my career path/prospect be different?"

i attended 1 of the non-degree modules in SUSS n it was an eye-opener for me. i sat in between 2 uncles (they rly look old like those mid-40s to maybe even 50s kind). den i realised they are PHD holder bcos both of them wrote Dr on their notes

I see..that’s what my parents advised me too. Maybe will understand when I’m in the workforce for longer

My friend, degree is not a starting pay booster. It is a race extender. In the long run you can definitely go further and higher with a degree as compared to a diploma holder.

I'm dying liao, 2nd class tomorrow got class test already. It's alot of self motivated studies. Lecturer ownself say ownself is ownself go read and read and read to understand, he won't go through everything with you one
same as every uni, u need study ur own .... even lecturer spoon feed also no use in long run, cause thereís just too many thing to teach in span of 3 hrs each lesson...

Revision wise, it really depends on what you want. Personally, I study almost every day whether it's near to the exams or not. I have one weekday night and half a day on both sat and sun where I don't study. All other times I would either be reading up before the next week's class, or working on assignments. If I have spare time after these, I would do up my notes for the modules.

The textbooks would be provided, but study guide and powerpoint slides would also be provided. Some people would say that study guide and slides are sufficient for the exams. But same thing....this depends on what you wish to achieve...If you are doing the degree wanting to do well, I would say that reading the textbook is a must. There are people who mention how many pages are in the textbook and how impossible it is to memorise everything. But do take note that this is tertiary education - you shouldn't be memorising everything you read. There is memory work required for the exams but knowing how to explain in your own words and how to apply the concepts are very important.
