The Late Case for Late Blommers

20 Aug 2018

 Straits Times, 12 Aug 2018 -  Article featured individuals who did poorly at the O levels but excelled later in life.

One example was MP Liang Eng Hwa who did poorly for his O-level English exams and failed to make the cut for junior college. He eventually took the polytechnic route and his drive saw him graduate with a civil engineering diploma from SP. He then worked his way up to become a senior bank executive.

Mr Liang shared that he did much better in polytechnic as the more applied curriculum suited him well.
