PSC just did their scholarship award ceremony. Here are some numbers.

1) 69 awarded in 2008 compared to 53 in 2007.
2) 370 people interviewed in 2008
3) 18% are studying engineering. The rest come from all sorts of courses.
4) Application process includes Psychometric testing, psychologist interview, pannel interview. Panel interviews start in Jan even for early phase applicants.

Trivia :
1) 30000 civil servants, 30,000 teachers, 50-60K stat board employees making civil service largest single employer in Singapore!

they were really bogged down with the number of applications that their interviews lasted for quite a long time.

but psc is always strict anyway, so can't really expect them to be any different.
