Mr Goh Jin Qiang, a Normal Academic student, played games like MapleStory and Dota for hours every day, barely scraping together a pass in school.

But these games also sparked a long-lasting interest in information technology. Mr Goh will graduate from the IT course as one of the top students, with a GPA of 3.90, at the end of the month.

His schoolmate Lam Ying Sheng will graduate from the Financial Informatics course at Singapore Polytechnic with a perfect GPA of 4.0.

The man, who was very rebellious when he was in secondary school, would spend 10 hours each day playing games like Warcraft and MapleStory. He had online friends who tried to pull him into gang activities.
