Default Double degree for scholarship?

Hi
I am planning to try for a double degree in law and econs... I am wondering if this will affect my chances of a scholarship compared to if I am just taking a single degree. Can someone help me on this? Thanks.

you have to check with the respective scholarship providers whether they will fund you 5 years. I know for a fact that PSC sponsors scholars for DDP programmes.

Thanks for replying... but PSC scholarship seems out my reach... it is realy difficult to get right? I n fact, I feel that it may be diffcult for me to get any scholarships as I dun have a H3 subject... is that right?

hmm how many AUs do you have, and what are your grades? I think for PSC you just need more than 10 AUs to be eligible.

Actually I'm not sure whether I have 10 or 11 academic units... is 'O' level higher mother tongue counted as 1 academic unit? And my results are As for H2 Chem, Econs, Bio and Math and H1 GP, and a B3 for 'o' level higher mother tongue.

You have 11 AUs. O Level HMT are equivalent to MT in JC.

govt scholarship providers tend not to give scholarships for business. but the chem engine will help. double degree imo definitely helps u to get the scholarship cos they are paying the same amount for you to learn more. which translates to their scholars having more knowledge, which translates to they can do more work =p

in fact, after i got my scholarship they asked me to do double degree is possible =x
