It's a risk. If your RO don't like you and fail your probation or extend your emplacement consideration period, then you GG. My colleague kena the earlier and I kena the latter. Luckily we are in IT security field.. easily find another job.

Not really. You can imagine HR won't care whether a uni is ranked no 56 or 64 right?

Tier 1: Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, LSE etc (usually PSC scholars)
Tier 2: NUS
Tier 3: NTU/SMU

Anything else, you likely won't get a place in the top ministries/SBs. Low-tier SBs still possible.

Generally, you can find private uni grads in lower-tier statboards like NParks, PA, NLB etc. My ministry does not have a single private uni grad Div 1 officer (MX scheme).

MCI now involved in cybersecurity, should be a hot field as well.
