It's true, and unfair to Singaporeans. For instance thousands of A level top scorers (with perfect AAA grades) fail to get into local Medicine course (simply because thousands of perfect A level scorers apply for only 300+ places every year), but are actually way more qualified (in potential) than the thousands of foreign medical doctors (many of whom have dubious medical training from dubious medical schools) imported into Singapore every year, due to chronic shortage of doctors in Singapore.

‘Average’ NUS student scored almost perfect grades on overseas exchange with 1/5 the effort put in S’pore
