Come for scholarship interview
The daughter forwarded this to me this afternoon. How ironic I thought, she didn't even apply for this or any scholarships. RI had like her more than 300 with the maximum 90 points and counting the rest of the JCs there must be at least 600 or more of them against the limited places for Medicine, Law and Business. This was somewhat surprising. Many of the top scorers could have opted to study in foreign universities? But that is too early. I think she got it because she proposed NUS business school as her first choice. Those who did not and also fail to obtain places in Medicine or Law would be pushed further down the pile when they fail to obtain their first or second choice.

After much research and thinking, she informed that she is emailing them to turn down the opportunity to interview for this scholarship. The decision mean nothing, it is the thought process which counts and turning this down is the right thing to do at this time.
