the minimum entry criteria is usually a Second Class Upper from NUS/NTU/SMU. unless u are applying for some ministries/statboards that require a specialised skillset.
i haven't seen any successful ppl in CS from SIT/SUTD/SUSS/SIM:GE/Kaplan/MDIS. my definition of successful is earning at least 5.5k to 6k before 35yo.

just to answer your question, the MX rank is the most generic rank used for deg holders in CS.

MX13 = entry lvl for deg holder
MX12 = u pass 2 years probation / contract and are emplaced into perm scheme
MX11 = probably a make or break deal to decide if u will jump into semi-superscale before retirement
MX10 = the max of your salary scale crosses 5-digits
MX9 aka Superscale = congrats your basic salary is now 5-digits. only 5% of ppl in the same dept as u have this rank. unless u are at HQ or smth...

the above is probably equivalent to your banking & finance (B&F) side of:

financial analyst / asst manager i suppose?
associate / manager?
AVP
VP
P
board of directors / shareholders of a listed bank in SG

u kinda get the picture....



element of luck involved. if your dept has no scholars and u are willing/chosen to take on key appointment holder (KAH) positions ahead of 2.1/2.2, i'll say there's a high possibility that u could reach MX10 before retirement. most ordinary degree holders dont even get a chance to smell MX10 before retirement.



severely inaccurate especially for MX12 and 13. i had frens from SMU biz (i didnt ask his class of honours) getting offered low to mid-3k from MHA ICA. and that was way back in 2010.

your salary scale looks more suitable for the prehistoric dinosaur age or girls in skirts without NS LOLOL

Hello all! I hear a lot of people saying that going into the CS as a local fresh grad is a waste of your youth. Is that true?? I thought CS pays very well compared to the average worker in the private sector..

The benefit of civil service is they really cannot sack you.
Job security in 40s and 50s.

In pte u get sacked once you are of no value to them. A lot of professionals in 40s and 50s will get retrenched and wont find a similar job.

So in pte sector you must do some financial planning dont over stretch your later years. U get sacked and it means Foreclosure, bye bye to your house if you overstretch. But if u hardworking, you can actually earn and save up a lot.


Bad thing about civil service is pay progression is lower than peers in pte sector. Non scholars henta-kaki a bit. But you must find meaning in your job to be able to sustain that 30 years

In life is the same, do you marry a boring unattractive girl and she wont do extra marital affair.
Or you aim for a out of your league girl, then she a higher risk of extra marital affair

my advice to pte degree holders is to try your best to enter CS. joining as a full time staff is admittedly more challenging as we are competing against local degrees. you should aim for internships or temp positions, good opportunity to gain some experience, and you may be lucky enough to have the opportunity to convert to a perm staff. the pay in civil service is good, esp for fresh grads.

2013: MX 12
2014: MX 12
2015: MX 11
2016: MX 11
2017: MX 11A
2018: MX 11A
2019: MX 11 A
2020: MX 10 (Age 35: Gross 9000)

Current age 35 and reached MX 10 within 9 years of joining civil service. Thinking if I should take on another career or carry on with current job. Not sure of CEP and if can hit MX9. Any advice from kind souls on the progression of the career so far?
consider good and fast progression.
i am from private 34 this yr, join SB a year ago drawing 8.4. not sure about my pay revision this yr yet.
