Answer: They all applied to NUS. I think she read it in NUSWhispers. After last week, there is another answer: They may be secretly filmed showering on campus.

She posted an Instagram Story about catching another student filming her in the shower, which resulted in Facebook posts by two ministers and a disappointing NUS town hall meeting on Thursday.
