Local Msc does not really count for anything. Firstly, A Level results and undergraduate studies are much more important. Secondly, the Msc programs in NUS/NTU do not award postgraduate degrees based on classifications.

How does this CEP works? This blog talks about potential vs performance and the effect of CEP has on the career progression.

In general, masters are pretty useless. Competition for a masters course is very minimal unlike competition for undergrad courses. In a sense, you are nothing 'special' if you got into a masters program or even have a masters. Masters can even be completed in under 2 years part-time. Only certain industries require a masters degree. For example, psych grads who want to be counsellors should take a masters in counselling. In most instances, the value of a masters degree might be even worth less than a bachelor's degree itself. Not to mention masters are usually just coursework. Not hard to complete, go to lesson take exams, no real work done per se. Unlike Phd where real research must be undertaken and an oral defence is required to be granted a phd.
