Default Civil service with Masters

Hi,

I have pass degree with DL degree. Will I have better chance to join the civil service with a local uni Master degree?

Will my CEP be capped by my DL degree with no honours?

Unfortunately local masters don't count towards raising cep. 1st degree DL may not count either, depending on degree and which stat board (civil service doesn't take DL degrees). So you will join as MSO, with poly grads, not MX.

you are wrong. There are many in senior officers with DL who work in Ministries.

In case no one knows, Senior Officers in ministry or stat board are entry level degree holder job. So there isnt any link with senority.

You are probably not familiar with civil service. Senior Officers refer to graduate officers. These include entry level grades such as MX13 and MX12, as well as superscale grades such as MX8 and MX9.

There is a short list of approved dl degrees. Not all are accepted. Civil servants who join with 2nd lower and below or with poly, then do part time master degrees at NUS are not promoted faster (hence cep doesn't change) nor are they upgraded from MSO to MX.

I would say depends on ministry. SAF's DXO line would recognise a local masters much better than a DL degree.

My CEP will be capped even if I have good results in my local uni Msc but bad results in my undergraduate studies?

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