It is already clear that the PAP cocked up on the fake degree saga by relentlessly letting foreigners in without doing due diligence. It is clear as day that a committee needs to be set up (like what WP proposed) to weed through new applications as well as past applications, and kick them out. But doing this is akin to saying that they cocked up and WP made a good proposal. So rather than owning up to their mistakes they just try to sweep it under the carpet and treat it like nothing happened.Read More »

S’POREAN: I WORKED SO HARD TO GET RECOGNISED DEGREE WHILE FT USE FAKE DEGREE
I did not study so hard to get a degree from an Accredited university for Singaporean employers to suddenly be allowed to consider applications of people with Mill degrees (as long as they have sufficient experience?!)

This issue was discovered by a sharp-eyed Singaporean who subsequently posted his discovery on popular Singapore social media websites. IDA's response has caused discomfort among civil servants, especially among ground officers within Immigration & Checkpoint Authority (ICA) which is known by the public to be the first line of defence against dubious characters who wish to relocate and work in Singapore.Read More »
SINGAPORE IS NO LONGER A MERITOCRACY, THANKS TO PAP
Actually this whole IDA fake degree saga shows how rampant instant degrees are. The worst thing is that the government actually endorses it. This case really makes my blood boil.

IDA: WE STAND BY NISHA AS SHE BELIEVED HER MBA WAS REAL
The IDA says that it is satisfied that applications consultant Nisha Padmanabhan did not deceive the agency by listing the MBA from Web-based Southern Pacific University, an alleged diploma mill, in her resume.

STOP THE RUMOURS! SOUTHERN PACIFIC UNIVERSITY IS NOT A FAKE DEGREE!
Southern Pacific University might be an unaccredited institution, but the degree that she possesses is not a fake one as everyone is alleging. I have validated with some of my ex-colleagues who had their friends who did their courses from SPU. I understand that there were proper credit hours awarded through lecture sessions and dissertations that students had to complete before getting this degree.Read More »
