I'm currently studying in what is known as a Polytechnic in my country ( Singapore), where the school year starts on April. I'm pursuing a Diploma in Banking and Financial services, and the first semester just ended. (I'm in my Freshie year.) So apparently I fucked up the first semester with a GPA of around 2.0455. At this rate it's almost impossible to get into a local University (The entry scores are around 3.6) So I'm stuck in a situation where I have to either continue this route and finish my 3 year education, and get a diploma, which most probably would not get me into a University, or I could switch to a 2-year route Junior College which would get me to A-Levels. A levels are more "favored" by local universities. So the dilemma is this. If I go ahead and switch routes, I would be 1 year later than my peers, and would effectively render me as a outcast in Junior College. While if I stayed in the Polytechnic, I would not be able to get into a University. BHW, which route should I choose?
