Poly jobs: “More” means … ?

Updated: Jan 4, 2020


Please disclose the statistics for Poly graduates, instead of keep saying “more”, “most”, etc lah?

I refer to the article “Goals of poly grads changing” (Straits Times, Jan 18).

It states that “More polytechnic students are choosing to continue their studies instead of finding work immediately after graduating. This is a preference among diploma holders that has emerged over the last decade, and is also seen in the latest graduate employment survey conducted by the five polytechnics.”

So, what does “more” mean?

That just one per cent more than last year’s figure, or say 30 per cent more?
