Gap Year Singapore National Service

We all must walk our own path as we journey through life. Many students leave BSB and matriculate to a university for further in-depth studies. Some take a GAP year and volunteer and some feel pride in completing their country’s National Service (NS).

Desean Chong has decided to do exactly that. As a Singaporean, Desean is obliged to complete his NS and therefore he put his mind to it and will put his full efforts into the next two years. Desean understands that this is a growth opportunity for him physically and mentally. A number of BSB alumni have attested to the fact that this is truly a challenging growth opportunity. They feel that they have developed in many ways (Physical fitness, accepting challenges, being out of their comfort zone, perseverance, team work) that will support them with their university applications and throughout life.

Desean completed his IB Diploma Programme in 2019 with a very respectable 37 points and would have had a strong university application this year. After he completes his NS he will use his excellent IBDP results, his academic skills and his new skills learned from his experiences in the NS to apply to university.

As many of us understand, we each have our own life’s journey. To quote Dulquer Salmaan, “I chose my own path because that was the only way.” Desean is making his own path to his future.
