LMS is nothing-anyone with a local uni placement can get this money. People here are the lowest batch of scholars and their CEP usually ends up with just a senior lt colonel thats all. Full colonel if they are ok.

No scholarship means you are a farmer. Usually you will progress really slowly and end rank is Major or Lt Colonel.
The problem is vacancy.. there are not many positions available at COL estab because of the relatively small size of our armed forces. So a lot of decent chaps holding SMS or above scholarships also wait very long at SLTC.

Similarly we have a lot of scholar HODs who are high performing in their managerial roles but wait very long for a VP(EO) opening to become vacant.

Anyone can share what fresh grads are getting these days? I heard it's around 3.7-3.8k for FCH with NS?

Any teachers or ex-teachers moved to/from MX scheme? Am thinking of quitting teaching to join other ministries, and wondering which scheme pays better. Thanks!

I have an NIE batch mate who jumped to MOM the moment bond finished. They will try to match current salary point...But I think there was a slight pay cut. More importantly, my friend was a lot happier due to the better work life balance and fewer political issues.

I am the batch mate who jumped to MOM. EOs are paid slightly better than MXs, which is why its a different scheme altogether. Stat boards though, have their own salary structure and you might be paid more/less/equal. That said, pay is not everything. The intangible benefits I had (such having a regular bowel movement) more than made up for the cut. Health is wealth. All the best!

That is because the equivalent grade for MX11A is not GEO 5 but SEO 1

Hi, am interested to pursue a career with MOE as a teacher.

Curious on the starting salary and general pay progression from trainee all the way up to 8-10 years of exp. Any insights would be valuable thank you.

Is that so? Thatís interesting because GEO4 is equivalent to MX11. So thereís is an additional rung for EOs..

Hi! If I take NPL for two months to care for my mother, will my annual merit increment be pro-rated? I understand that my connect plan and performance grade will be affected as well. TY!
