Singapore IMO Team Members' University Destinations

This post is inspired by the Statistics of University Destinations for UK IMO team members (apparently, majority of the UK IMO team members had joined Cambridge, in particular, Trinity College).

Below are the university (undergraduate and postgraduate) destinations of Singapore IMO team members in the last decade.  Top 3 uni choices are NUS, Cambridge and MIT. Note that most of the guys have had to serve 2 years of compulsory National Service after their High School, before joining the University. Those guys and girls with no NS obligation are marked with #.

University destinations of Singapore IOI team members can be found here.
