Having said all of that, I thank you for your insightful post and some of the thoughts you shared. Your tone may not have been great but Iím not silly enough to ignore the useful nuggets of info contained inside it. Very valuable and Iím grateful. I have some data points from my discussions in the UK and desktop searches but every small piece of additional information fills in a small part of the much bigger picture so donít mind my many questions.

I canít stress enough that I know itís a long shot both for QC and SC but a failure to plan is a plan to fail. So the more data points and info, the better. And like I said, one can and should dream, even if critics like to throw brickbats =]

It would be absolutely splendid to have more thoughts from anyone. Including those who can give me a real sense of the odds of making SC in Singapore if I come back from a Ďvery good UK school.í It seems that there are very few appointments each year so even the best are a long shot and Iím finding it difficult to know if it is a remotely realistic aspiration at all.

If anyone knows how the recent attempts at ensuring for QC appointments works for Asians, that would be useful info as well.
SC - practice. FCH not necessary.

QC - FCH. BCL. He's right, as an Asian it is ridiculously hard not to get passed over at the top sets if you don't distinguish yourself. So double starred first and BCL. This isn't throwing brickbats, more like the hard truth. I do think it's possible to just get away with the BCL, though e.g. 2020 joiners to Fountain Court.
