So no plans on higher education?

I have been accepted to the NTU MSc in Information Systems programme. It seems that the selectivity of this programme is very low; even applicants with mediocre profiles were accepted.

I have decided not to matriculate so that I can give my placing to someone who needs this programme more than I do.

Sad. My nus application for masters of statistics is unsuccessful. I thought it will be easy since I received a gahmen scholarship and has been working in a data job for 8 years, gpa is 4.8 out of 5 and first class honours. Apparently still not enough. Now feel like a total slap in the face...

Why will you even consider NUS if you have this profile

I bet that programme has loads of chinese/indian students

Hi guys, do u know of any interest-free loans similar to the undergrad one?
I recently applied for nus's msc finance, but the course is tagged as Self-Funded, so it is not eligible for the interest free loan.



I asked POSB and they quoted me around 5%+ interest rate, which starts after the first month of loan.

seems like i have to forgone my plans for grad studies
