NTU/NUS/SMU 2017-2018 Intake

All admission related questions specifically related to AY2017/18 (NUS, NTU and SMU only) are welcome in this thread. Ask away! Create a HWZ account if you need to ask a question or to contribute to the discussion.

For other universities e.g. SUTD, SIT and UniSIM/SUSS, please look up for their respective threads in the Degree subforum.

Similar thread in Reddit (r/Singapore)

PLEASE NOTE: MOST OFFERS (Poly students included) WILL ARRIVE BETWEEN APRIL AND MID MAY
----------
Historical IGP Freshmen AY2008/09 to AY2016/17
for both A Level (in numerical rank points) and Poly applicants (in CGPA)
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...T7nLKc/pubhtml

Historical GES Class of 2008 to 2016
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...kYuPc8/pubhtml
----------
DO EXPECT FIERCER COMPETITION FOR VACANCIES; WITH EFFECT FROM AY2017/18, DISCRETIONARY ADMISSION RATE WILL BE RAISED FROM 10% TO 15% (Source)
----------
For rating of chances/ posting of offers, please state:

Poly
- CGPA (5th/6th sem)
- O Level L1R4 (raw score). If from PFP/ITE, state N Level results and PFP/ITE GPA
- Current poly and course
- Singaporean/PR/Foreigner (Foreigners have a harder chance of entering local universities due to 18% foreigner quota)
- Target uni course/ Uni and course offer received/ rejected (if any, indicate all choices)

A Level
- Grade profile (H2-H2-H2/H1-GP-PW+(H)MT)
- Total rank point
- Singaporean/PR/Foreigner
- Target uni course/ Uni and course offer received/ rejected (if any, indicate all choices)

If applying for DA, do state CCA and achievements as well
----------
All confirmed admission results (from this year's admission exercise, whether offered or rejected) posted on this thread will be used to compile the Appeal Chance Rater. If you have been offered, please assist your peers who are waiting for their offer.

To post your offers/ rejections in this thread, please include:
- A Level total rank point OR Poly CGPA (6sem) with O Level raw L1R4 (For rank points, please do calculate one with MT, one without MT and take the higher one for reference. Use this calculator if in doubt. For Poly CGPA, I accept only 6sem from now onwards, and please give it in 2 decimal places, do not round up)
- List ALL your choices for each university application (up till the offered course, or else all choices if you're rejected)
- Offered course/ Rejected status, and whether the offer is made under DA or borderline interview (if any) (must be confirmed offer)
- Singaporean/ PR/ Foreign Student (foreigners studying local schools are still counted as international student)


I cannot accept any input via PM. All inputs must come from this thread only.

Thank you for your help.

You can refer to this site or this site for more information on the application process and dates.

From what I've heard from my friends who got into PGP, it is relatively easier to get in as compared to other residences.

Hi. Please rate my chance.
I am studying business and just got my 5th semesters results too.
I got a CGPA of 3.73 and want to go to NTU biz.
but i fall short from igp 10th percentile of 3.80
Is there still a good possibility for me to get in?
my CCA is not good enough to boast but i can get referral letters from lecturers and employers for internship, part time jobs etc. will that be any help? and can i actually use work experience under the discretionary admission exercise?

English need at least B4, if not:
If you manage to get an interview opportunity, you will be given 15 minute to write an essay on a topic before being interviewed by 2 profs.

Your math grade is okay, so they probably won't probe you in this area. However your L1R4 quite weak.

Wish you the best of luck
