You’ve got some time, but you’ll be surprised how quickly college age comes.

My kids might both be starting college this fall. My wife is thinking of having my son take a high school exemption exam and skip the last two years - go straight into junior college (community college) in the U.S. He will probably have better options as a transfer student in California than trying to get in as a high school graduate (acceptance rates are more than double). After what our daughter went through, it should also be less stressful.
Wow! We don't have these kind of pathways in the Indian education system( my daughter goes to an Indian intl school in Singapore ).

I am really amazed at how at a young age of P6 in Singapore they have so many pathways like academic, technical, express, integrated IB programme etc.

Next application we have few updates. From August my wife will start her Phd in NUS (Not saying that this will turn the table but just an update from our side).

It is good to have something to plan on improving. However, dont be mislead that doing a PhD in a local university will always lead a pr approval. It really depends on the area on which the PhD is done if it aligns with SGs future development requirements. Not all local bachelors/PhDs get approved for pr. Since, your spouse's field of study seems related to life science/ psychology, i am not sure how ICA views doing a PhD in a such related fields. Moreover, PhD is more of a mental battle and can take around 4yrs or more (if full time) and also the cost (if not in scholarship).
