Haha, thats not all to the equation. Accountancy grads have a more stable career, meaning the risk is lower. Risk is lower, reward is also lower then. Of course it depends on which sector as well, but generally it is hard for accountants to be jobless.

I think you meant CPA?

Default Enquiry on ranking of choices

Hi, I would like to enquire that if I place NUS business as 1st Choice, but I know I most likely have to go through DA.. Will it affect my chances of getting into my 3rd choice of engineering which I have met the entry requirements?
Also, does NUS look more at UAS or the various grades?
