The umbrella of game theory ponders over all of academia, spanning political science to evolutionary biology.

So we’ve heard what is being offered and now we wonder: ‘Should I take an internal or external H3?’ ‘What’s in it for me?’ ‘Should I even bother applying?’ Chia Jia Jin (12S06F) has very kindly taken time off his Mega Mugging Madness to give Press the lowdown on these H3s.
