NTU Scholarship: “Overseas Students Will Be Prioritized”

Dear AllSingaporeStuff, I saw someone sharing this screenshot and it made me very angry. I understand why local universities need foreign students. That’s where a lot of their income comes from, because foreign students have to pay higher school fees. I also understand why companies like to sponsor students and …

GE2020: Another Paper General Expected to be Parachuted into PAP

Just how many paper generals does the PAP need? Since Pinky's own entry into politics as a Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) scholar, the pattern of ownself select ownself has gone on and on and the number of paper generals in the party has been increasing. The latest addition to the "mix" is expected to be the country's first woman general (but not first woman paper general) Gan Siow Huang.

NUS STUDENT NOW REGRETS TAKING UP GOVT SCHOLARSHIP AFTER ENJOYING ALL THE BENEFITS

Why miserable you might think. In the 4 years, I realised what I am interested in isn't really what the organisation is doing. The foolish me back then was too short sighted, focusing more on the monetary gains. If I could turn back the clock, I would definitely have not accepted it. While I am able to enjoy employment now, my heart is heavy everytime I wake up. There is no motivation, drive or passion for my work.

LAZY & SELFISH PRC SCHOLAR TRIES TO GAME OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM

This student constantly dozes off or plays his phone in lectures and tutorials, and for several hours straight. He has been blacklisted from CCA, brought into remedial lessons, and barely made it past J1. Spoke to him a bit and asked around his social circle along with mutual friends. Seems that he is in essence, trying to game the system. He's on a govt scholarship, but when asked further, has told us he doesn't really care about the A Levels. Rather, his intent is to take the SAT and have the A Levels as a excuse to be funded for his stay here, hence the almost zero effort in school. When asked about why he refuses to mingle around with others, he replied that he thinks Chinese is a superior language and hence doesn't bother improving his English to better interact with us. Now, part of me and my classmates has already given up and can't care less about him. The thing is, would it be the correct thing to inform the teachers of his attitudes and intentions "studying" here?

SG YOUTH: I WISH I WASN’T BORN A SINGAPOREAN

I wish I was an Indian National A*Star scholar instead of a Singaporean. If I wasn’t a Singaporean, I wouldn’t have to pay for my own school fees. I also wouldn’t have to apply for a bank loan for my tertiary studies in future like my elder brother did, even though he got 3As and 1B for his A-level results.
