At the age of 18 and the acquisition of top grades during "O" levels, you may think that the world is your oyster. Your Junior College examination results are important for assessment in the internship at Toa Payoh Vets. If your results are poor and you may a student of a top junior college, your chances of acceptance are slim.
Prospects who have poor Junior College 1 academic results but straight As in "O" levels may be acceptable as interns if their reasons are valid. However, if you don't give priority to your academic results, don't expect me to give you second chances as there are many applicants with stellar academic results.

Please note that we don't accept prospects who just want to have a feel of veterinary medicine and surgery for a week or two.

Learn how to manage your junior college time and get the excellent academic results if you can think about your future. It is fun to be involved in outside activities, but in the final analysis, you have to produce excellent academic results to qualify for internship and undergraduate vet studies. The world does not respect much your leadership in the sports team if you have poor academic results. Therefore, wake up early during your Junior College 1 year and get your priorities right. Performance counts whether you are a student, an employee or a boss.

Learn how to submit a resume when you apply to us for internship. Don't come for interview like a blur king or queen. Your Junior College teachers may not teach you this but you have to read up and do your research. If you don't know what "resume" means, go and do your research.  

Vet interns take up valuable time and space from me and my staff. Therefore, Toa Payoh Vets will not accept interns who are late for work or just take leave whenever they feel like it. You may have straight As and you will qualify for veterinary undergraduate studies overseas, but the world does not owe you a living or an obligation to provide you with internships. If your attitude towards internship is poor, your internship will be terminated immediately as in this case.
