This week (June 30) our Malaysian students report at local universities. The STPM results were out 3 months ago. The smart and serious Singapore universities offered the brightest and best students in Malaysia within a month or so of the release of the results. When Malaysian universities made offers to our local students 2 weeks ago, those who have accepted offers in Singapore were already happily settled down for 2-3 months. There are also many scholarships available by the Singapore government, Temasek Holdings, etc for these students.

Why should these students now return to Malaysia to study at a lower ranked Malaysian university? We are just too slow to act if we are serious about keeping our bright young people.

This event alone takes the cream off the Malaysian university entrants ... annually.
