Of course true. E.g. Be DXO, second upper from local uni, go in straight away is cream of the crop. Promotion will come very fast and expect to hit 8K before 40. If you are good, 10 K is achievable as well.

Iron rice bowl some more.

Other places for science grads: SAF , police, moe, ministry of health, even ministry of manpower / labour / NEA all ok one. 8K is definitely attainable down the years. 10K will depend on whether u are good enough.

Bad thing about science/engine grads is that they can't write well. At least they can't write as well as these guys. So your best bet is to apply for a role or a ministry which your degree is directly related to. That will give you a higher chance. If you picked up any skills in your life science degree that you feel can be applied to other positions then you could apply for those too.

Complete nonsense. Humanities and social science grads are the bottom of the barrel in terms of quality. While they might have better writing and communication skills, they are mostly empty of logic. They are used to writing long argumentative academic essays that no one else reads. As a result, they struggle to get any jobs at all.

The only exception are the Economics grads.

Policy writing and planning and even HR or comms goes to the Business or Economic students.


As a life science graduate, you can go AVA or NEA. That is the best match for your job. Since you are obviously not interested in further research, those agencies are the best for you liao. You go anywhere else will not get promoted one, given your slack mentality.

Unregistered TS,

U ask about Govt jobs, have plenty lah. U ask about high pay and promotion, nobody can promise or tell u. U must have the passion to work in public service and after few years then have chance for promotion. U answered yourself already, non scholar, only money in sight...

Unregistered I understand the problem too..
Science is tough..

How about AVA?

Unregistered What kind of job you wish to work under civil service?

Policy, lab?

Unregistered Try those stat boards or ministries closer to life science: Ministry of Health, MOH Holdings, Health Promotion Board (HPB), Health Science Authority (HSA) or other healthcare or medical care related organizations.
