From ITE to NUS scholar

From ITE to NUS scholar

His route to university was a long, unconventional one. But this late bloomer is now an undergraduate, a decorated scholar and an inspiration to others. During his primary school years, Mr Ang Jin Hui (above), 25, frittered his time away watching TV. He ended up in the Normal (Technical) stream in secondary school, then spent two years in ITE before he was admitted to Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Now, Mr Ang is a first-year student at the National University of Singapore – for him, a dream come true. He also holds two scholarships – the NUS Undergraduate (Merit) Scholarship and the Lee Kuan Yew Scholarship to Encourage Upgrading, which is a one-time $3,500 award. Read the full story in The New Paper on Monday (Feb 27).
