what do you mean? i don't think there's a chinese quota. if you make the cut, you get in. nationality matters, being chinese or female does not.

The female quota.....
And yes, there is a quota and a race factor.
They are open about it.

Yep, there is or used to be one. Pretty evident with a simple google query.

They certainly do exist. They are quietly applied. Have a look at how many of the intake have higher chinese in their A levels. Have a look at any graduation photograph (but take out the international students first before you do this). Very much alive and kicking!

I know Malay students are supposed to have some advantages in Uni admissions..presumably not for medicine though?
