dont bother with the Masters. let me explain why below...

- u dun even know what class of honours u gonna graduate with, nowadays competition to enter Civil Service (CS) is dam intense. if u have only a pass degree, high chance u'll enter some low / sh1t tier M / SB, or maybe no chance to enter CS but only the pte sector.

- if the above rly happens to u, i rather u pursue a part-time Masters after getting your a55 INTO the CS. or at least ask for sponsorship / subsidies from your M / SB after joining them

- most of the advertised vacancies on [email protected] require just a degree



in short, focus on getting at least a second-upper from NUS / NTU / SMU (if u are even from any of these 3 unis to begin with) first. this is the most important part.

Will we get pay cut?

Given the economy situation now... Will we get a pay cut? 0
Today 12:36 AM
Unregistered Relax. It is likely to be 0 mid year bonus.

If the cut goes deeper, MI is 0 too.

Reducing the current basic pay is tier 3. This may not happen at all (not mathematically zero though, just to quell arguments).

So, fingers crossed, just the first cut.

Mr Kam said that discussions on pay are ongoing between the Public Service Division and public sector unions, and they are working towards the regular timeline of announcing the decisions and mid-year annual variable components in June“.

It seems like a few stat boards have announced pay freeze/cut. Generally, it seems like only the management staff are getting heftier pay cut. Let’s not waste time alleging fake news here. You should be informed of the pay revision in the coming weeks.

Unregistered Is there generally a salary difference between social ministries like MSF and MCCY and economic ministries like MTI? Also, is there usually a salary difference between divisions in a ministry?
