The fact that these students were selected for scholarships probably means that they were above average performers during secondary school.

I would also say that perhaps another third of foreign grads are high performers who would have gotten government scholarships but didn't because of various reasons (didn't do that well in BM, studied in Singapore, missed the JPA by a few As, didn't want to be bonded by the government etc...).

The 'X'es refer to the many times we posted or discussed this issue on our blog.

I wanted to revisit this issue after reading the following comments from Dr.

I'm sure we've seen our fair share of spoilt, rich brats who start their first job driving a BMW or Mercedez to work. For these kids, there are always other options such as working for daddy's company instead of slaving away at that 9to5 job.

Thus they are not likely to skew the public perception of what the average foreign grad is like compared to an average local grad.

It also further cements the perception that foreign grads are somehow better than local grads.

There's probably another third or so who end up overseas because their parents are rich and not solely for their academic prowess.

Many of these high performers are from middle class families who have scrounged and saved so as to enable their kids to go to an overseas university.

And many of these parents wouldn't have made these kinds of sacrifices if they thought that their kids were going to 'waste' their money on an overseas education.

I think it is definitely biased in favor of foreign grads.
