In Parliament today, when queried by Sembawang MP Lim Wee Kiak on the number of A level students who were unable or chose not to attend a local government university, Acting Minister for Education Ong Ye Kung revealed that 3 in 10 A level students did not progress to a full time degree programme with a local university. This amounts of 4,400 students every year.

Out of this 4,400 students who did not make it to local universities, 40% were males while 60% were females. Ong Ye Kung added that most of these students ended up pursuing other options such as polytechnics, arts schools, overseas universities or private education institutions.
