I just read an article in TheStar on how our MCA president has come up with the dumbest idea I’ve heard so far on the PSD scholarships. According to the article, “Four MCA ministers will propose to the Cabinet on Wednesday that the top 300 SPM students be selected for Public Service Department (PSD) overseas scholarships based purely on academic results and should not be required to go through an interview.”
Then, I thought to myself, maybe he knows something that I don’t?
For example, maybe he knows that these students would fail their interviews because they cannot speak or communicate properly. Maybe, he knows that these students are unable to think clearly or answer the questions asked. Maybe, he knows that these students do not qualify for the overseas scholarships on their own and need the MCA to help them over the bar.
Honestly, I’d like to know what the MCA is smoking.
