THEREALSINGAPORE 26 March 2014 - 7:37pm

I had previously written about how the PAP’s profit-driven policies will cause the Singapore economy to crash.

As a result, Singaporeans are also cut down by the PAP as our wages cannot grow and our spending power has dropped on declining purchasing power.

THEREALSINGAPORE 26 March 2014 - 6:20pm

WHY FOREIGN DEGREES ARE GOLD WHILE LOCAL DEGREES ARE TRASH?

THEREALSINGAPORE 26 March 2014 - 5:04pm

Even if we have enough to pay for education in Singapore... Our certificates will never be enough to compete with foreign ones. Somehow foreign degrees are gold while local ones are trash.

Plus I really do "like" how when students apply for local universities, they don't get what they want. Everyone seems to have stellar grades nowadays and there really is an issue of grade inflation.
