Only 67.2 percent of NUS Science graduates are fully employed?

Posted on 31 January 2013

Then what are the other 32.8 percent doing? Play Pokemon?

Do you want to know the real reason why Singapore’s economy is going tits up?

Well, it appears that only 67.2 percent of NUS graduates holding a Bachelor of Science are fully employed.

And this is compared to the 73.8 percent of NUS graduates holding a Bachelor of Arts who are fully employed, and who are more likely to be hipsters and pretentious fucks.

Check out the graph for yourself on a site that mysteriously popped up overnight, called The Great Singapore Rat Race, where the wages of graduates from the various universities and faculties are compared across the board.:

Lo and behold, apparently, Arts degree holders even make more money than Science degree holders!

So, the question is: What are the NUS Science graduates doing? Fly kite? Catch fish?

However, it is not known where the data came from. It might have been pulled out of somebody’s ass, for all we know.

The latest data is supposedly based on a 2011 survey but there are no indications as to how the survey derived the responses. Maybe the survey people did what the The Straits Times did: Get half-assed responses from people like what they did during the Punggol East by-election.

But at least no one’s breaking the law in this instance.

However, for those curious, SMU students overall are revealed to make the most moolah.

So, it can be concluded that the founders of the this site are from SMU.
