Unhappy 26 no degree is all hope lost? private degree holders advice needed please

In my teens and early 20s i was sick didnt finish JC/Poly (psychology) and barely have any long term work experience. I did eventually get a pre-uni cert from James Cook and diploma in comms from Kaplan. However when covid hit and i started looking at job requirement for comms/PR/Marketing jobs i realised i didnt learn sh*t in my dip.

I am contemplating getting my degree finally probably from PSB (will try SIT and SUSS but highly doubt theyll accept my certs).

I guess I was wondering if anyone has any advice for possible routes/training programmes/careers i can embark on without a degree/private degree. I think a management programme of some sort would be interesting but im not sure if they would accept a private degree. Im seeing alot of comments saying private degs are useless/unrecognised so i'm also worried about that.

I'm also learning digital marketing/copywriting/video editing on the side to see if anything sticks.

Thanks i'm immensely grateful for any pearls of wisdom


oh also i highly doubt i will go for govt jobs as im not sure if they accept persons with MH records

You think taking a private degree will solve your problems?

One look at that piece of toilet paper and employers will know you're a smooth-brained simpleton who dropped out of secondary education.

Go and take A levels as a private candidate, and apply for real universities which grant real degrees.

Or resign yourself to a life of wiping toilet bowls. Singapore has no room for mediocrity.

Why need to post again? Is this your split personality talking? Perhaps you should consider a career as a professional Yugioh player.

It's the SIM delusion setting in.

Pretend the first thread never existed, and try again.

Maybe this people will give different responses.

Nope, private degrees are still literal toilet paper.
