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.

All the fields have their pros and cons. To say one is "useless" is a sweeping statement. Look at the NUS pharmacy. It's a straight A course but many pharmacy graduates are struggling.

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.

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?
