Maybe MINDEF really doesn't have tie-ups with MOE, and maybe MOE doesn't have dealings with universities (it certainly does with Junior Colleges), but I think it might be more than just prudent to have some sort of a gateway between the three. It's just so bizarre that with all the personal data we have to submit to various databases over the course of our lives, something as simple as proving your student status eludes the power of MINDEF and inter-ministry data sharing.
