    CMS: I'm still poking my finger around and dipping my feet into unknown waters, to be honest. I've hardly decided (for sure) what my plans are... could be anything from returning to Singapore to work at one of the stat boards/ministries, to staying on in the UK in the IB/management consultancy industry, to becoming an academic (very unlikely, but you never know!), to altering my career path rather drastically to become a diplomat.

    Hey there and a big hello to everyone who's Singaporean out there...hahaha...not that I'm Singaporean myself but I kind of like you guys from my short stint in JC...

    Applied to NUS Law Fac but needless to say, I got rejected..outright...haha...not even called in for the written test...I have a nagging feeling that its because of my A-level grades...I'll be the first to admit that I never was the stellar student to begin with...hahaha...So its off to the Uni of Hull for me...but seeing as I want to practise in Sg later on, I might very well have to reapply for the Graduate Entry into the Law Fac...sigh...another 3-4 years studying the same thing...

    To be honest, lawyers in Singapore don't really get that great a deal (compared to say, Hongkong).

    All I can find there is a survey for those who declined their offers. :p:

    *hurries off to criticise their annoying response times*

    Oh, and there's the Durham decliners' survey as well!

    Hmm, 4 more days to the weekend indeed. :cool: I like the positive outlook! :yy:

    nutter: i wouldn't do that even though i'm insane. the first two pages gave me a headache, then i went on to the last few.

    Wait wait wait, this is a tad confusing. :hmmmm:

    So you're a Singaporean who's had your elementary/primary/secondary education in the UK, and will be taking your A Levels there as well (with your school being in the CITY of Cambridge)?

    Well you'll never know about the Oxford bit! I don't think many of us where all that confident when we applied either - it just happened.

    Welcome to TSR as well! :tsr2:

    Val (life_rockz) will be studying English at Trinity College, Cambridge come this October, that I know!

    Not sure about any others, but Alvin (soonalvin) did receive an offer for Nat Science at Cam as well (declined).

    yeah. They sent me a Decliner's Survey. It pained me to put NUS/Med in the "which school have you accepted" box.
