Academia is reserved for top 1-5% of grads.
JLC is reserved for top 10% of grads (your FCH).
Baker/CC in the past used to accept FCH as trainees, but heard standards have lowered recently, so 2:1-2:2 also can.
Practice is essentially open to anyone including the 2:2s.
The poster asked what his choices were as a FCH from NUS.
Academia in SG is prestigious given the high bar and prestige surrounding it (excluding anomalous situations).
