No comment on the scandal itself, but I have to say that the comments on the article are MAKING MY BRAIN BLEED. How stupid are Singaporeans? Reading the comments is like watching a car accident in slow motion - I know something bad is going to happen, I know I will regret watching, but I can't stop looking. How is it possible that so many people appear to be bereft of any intellect whatsoever? Criticise the professor, criticse the student in question, but why do they feel the need to insult the entire student body, the entire legal profession, women, and even university students in general who aren't even from NUS Law? All the sanctimonious comments about "what has Singapore become?", "is this how the younger generation is behaving?", "lawyers have no morals!" - give me a fucking break. For every one such case that takes place, there are NUMEROUS others who got the grades that they did without resorting to fucking a professor. For fuck's sake, I got on the Dean's List in Year 4 and I didn't even cheat on take-home exams, let alone attempt to seduce professor (omg, ew ew ew). Why don't they comment on that? Why can't these people just focus on the details available to them instead of going off on retarded tangents that have little factual basis, let alone any intellectual content?
SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE EVEN THINK THAT NUS PROFESSORS ARE EMPLOYED BY THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION.
EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW JACK SHIT, GOOGLE IS EASILY AVAILABLE TO YOU FOR FACT-CHECKING BEFORE YOU POST CRAP WITHOUT THINKING.
I CAN'T WAIT TO GET OUT OF THIS COUNTRY.
Some really egregious ones:

That means the SECOND UPPERS are all SLEEPING THEIR WAY ?
No wonder those Girls we dont see at the library. No need to study ,all sure get 2.1.
We all were suspicious-- SO IT CAME TRUE !
How does ONE person equate to "all", you dumb shit? Can't write in proper English and can't count either - no wonder you're jealous of people with second uppers.

This is what happen when our locals are unable to compete with FTs. Our undergraduates have to put in the extra effort. This has to start in school to get the early experience. Very soon, she will be the youngest top lawyer in Singapore and very likely, our judges will fall for her too. Sure win case.
Foreign talents in law school?!?!?! What does the third sentence even mean? The AGC should unearth the identity of this dimwit and sue him for "scandalising the judiciary" or whatever archaic offence against the courts that they can dig up.

Hi ! NUS Faculty of Law Prof.'s sex scandal for " grade " don't bode well for the public at large. If this case is not handle properly, Citizens may loose faith in NUS. ! Sad day for NUS Faculty of Law. !....Ha Ha ! Cheers !
The only citizens that would "loose" faith in NUS based on ONE ISOLATED INCIDENT are probably the ones that couldn't get in in the first place.

Thousands of years fact. In Confucianism, lack of talent in a woman is a virtue. Once a woman becomes too clever, they over-smart and cause chaos. Not trying to blast all Singapore women but Singapore women is the best example of PAP's material creation. Do you see women in those middle-east countries behaving like that? Learn how to vote PAP out in 2016. Change this society and people's mindset on looking at money in the effort to save this earth.
Someone decipher this unintelligible misogynistic shit for me. Obviously this person is another dipshit who doesn't even know the first thing about Confucianism and yet proclaims to speak on its behalf, then tries to make a case against the PAP (everything comes back to the PAP for those who can't fucking think) by saying that Singaporean women are too educated? Seriously, where the hell do these people come from? "Those middle-east countries" - really? Let's name a few then. I bet you this idiot wouldn't be able to even name one.

Is the girl a lawyer now? Isn't this contempt to our legal system? This is terrible. How can she represent her clients if she did not really pass the exam to earn a law degree.
GOOGLE ALIEN CONCEPTS BEFORE COMMENTING. ISN'T THAT BASIC?

What is happening to Singapore? This is what we call progress?
I totally agree that there's a gross lack of progress in this country. It appears to me that Singapore's collective intellect is degenerating. There is no other way to explain the comments that I have quoted so far.

A grey area worthy of debate? I suspect this might end up being an issue killed off by NUS itself if the tenets of the law is indeed that hazy. Either that or we'll see a certain rehaul of the rules. :S
What grey area? What's so grey about a student sleeping with a professor for grades? WHAT TENETS OF THE LAW ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT? REHAUL OF WHAT RULES? PLEASE DO NOT USE PHRASES THAT YOU DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND.

this sort of sleeping around is becoming too common.....these so called got brain type of future lawyers want to prove they can do the same thing as those in geylang.........but can speak better grammar........probably.......
"So called got brain type of future lawyers"? You mean you can get into NUS Law School without a brain? This person should try applying and then getting his application shoved up his arse when he writes his entrance test in his impeccable command of the English language.

And they're about to open the Yale-NUS campus in 2013! Is this what they think 'academic freedom' is all about?
HOW DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER? Are Malaysians even more idiotic than Singaporeans?

What moral values did the parents taught the girl? Money is everything? This is why Singapore men prefer foreign women. Continue to vote for PAP is like worshipping this evildoers.
Don't worry dear, no Singaporean women would want to date you. You don't appear to have a brain and you strike me as overwhelmingly sexist. Have fun with your Vietnamese mail order bride.

i also and always think our papers(whatever level it may be, should be marked outside singapore to lower the risk of tainted value). i don't know where the education ministry made it locally marked?? it can and will create unwanted corruptions of any kind and anywhere. just because our country wanted things to be no. 1 things are such. i believe later, many years later, more will surface as it's only suppressed now.
What? Do we live under colonial rule still and I just didn't realise? This beggardog would be better off begging for some free education as he's clearly in need of some.

this kind of things have been going on for years in NUS poly even this guy maybe screwed her and then change the marks back...
EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT INCENDIARY ASSERTION PLEASE? WHAT THE FUCK IS "NUS POLY"? CAN'T EVEN DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE AND A POLYTECHNIC AND STILL WANT TO COMMENT.

Singapore is no more clean. In fact it has corruption from government schools to government civil service. All the way to the top. So we ask, what is PAP going to do? Heat is Lee Hsien Loong going to do? What is the big mouth Teo going to do? He is the minister of home affairs and he is not doing anything.
"Not doing anything"? Arresting people and charging them is doing nothing? Do you want the government to change your fucking adult diapers as well?

It is not about abilities, intelligence and examination scores. It is about sex after all.
Oh well, let's take sex education for the ultimate success ~
BECAUSE EVERY STUDENT FUCKS HER PROFESSOR FOR GRADES.
OH MY GOD, FUCK THIS DISGUSTING SHIT.
I need to stop reading this shit for the sake of my sanity.
