Yeah that's true and understandable, but I need something solid to distract me or I'll spend the next entire month refreshing my email and gripping my phone like a madman :'(

eat drink sleep exercise browse coursera

been doing this waiting game for 3 months and slightly depressed for various reasons, so I would say taking your mind off it is the best choice regardless of the outcome

1st time happen in the 4 years I apply. Must be facing some it issues
Hi , out of pure curiosity , I was just wondering . Should you be granted with the option between your current NTU course that is offered to you and a course to read law at either NUS or SMU - Which would you choose ? Whatever it is, I truly admire and respect your dedication and perseverance in retaking your A levels on multiple times - extending a helping hand to people in similar situations as you were in previously :-)

I think recommendation by people you know works the best
Ask around?

That is a tough question. I would slightly favour ntu atm.

Hahas you go, girl! Love your attitude! The only reason people say retaking As is 'risky' is because without the supervision and pushing of the school and teachers to study for As, it is rather easy for a person self-studying to fall into procrastination and complacency. Then, you may end up with worse results from before. However, if you are mentally strong and disciplined, and can force yourself to continuously study, retaking As may be a very good choice. After all, you have already learnt your content, what you are doing right now is revising, reinforcing, and making yourself more skilled. The more usual reasons people don't do well in As in their first try are because they didn't have enough time to memorize everything they need to, or they might not have practiced enough to be able to solve problems quickly and accurately. These issues are issues you can fix while retaking As. If you get better results from retaking As, there will be more options available for you, including going for the courses you want to enter. So while retaking As is definitely risky (no one can deny that), if you are mentally prepared for it, it is not a bad choice. As opposed to entering a course you know you hate, which may just lead you down a path you hate in life.

And at the very least, you know what you want and do not want in life, and have the determination to act on it. I find that to be better than those who are still lost sheep (myself included).
Thank you so much!! And yessss I agree with everything you just said (":

Me2. Got the offer at 1am. Now got to choose between ntu (3rd choice -ppga) or smu which will allow me to do my psychology. All the best to those who are still waiting. Good luck!
