The Sunday Times ran a special report on how more school leavers - including those who did well enough to enter junior colleges - are joining the five polytechnics in Singapore, continuing a trend that started more than five years ago. The report mentioned that the growing allure of the polytechnics is due partly to improved chances of their graduates progressing to universities here and the institutions offering more unusual courses for which there is demand. The article reported on niche courses in TP and featured TP Veterinary Technology student, Sofeah Samsuddin, who despite qualifying for junior college with an L1R5 score of 6, decided to take up the diploma course in TP.
