Very high chance. Since you have so many achievements related to your course. I guess they will see your true passion towards this course.
Thanks for the positive input Will update on the result of my appeal

obviously there's a difference between the degrees if they are obtained from different unis, why do you think timeshighereducation and qs university rankings exist... it's just that smaller firms don't have the luxury to carefully pick who they are hiring so to them their expectations aren't high
But he mentioned for this particular course (social sciences-where he claimed to be most useless), is there a difference in getting a local or pte uni?

Your grades are extremely far off from any biz, acc, or econs courses. Guess you should consider NTU enginneeing courses. Biz, Acc or econs related courses require high requirements. Don't be like few of them here retake A levels for the sake of entering a particular course. Retaking has a lot of factors to weigh in before making this decision.
Hi, yes I do understand where I'm coming from and have questioned myself many times if I'm actually going to retake As for the sake of getting into this one course and not be open about other courses.

As I know of a few people who have the same grades as me except for GP who got into NBS, I wanted to give it a shot myself as NBS has been one of my goals that I set for myself and I don't want to give up easily. This may sound as though I'm very fixed on business, but I personally feel people shouldn't give up on what they aim for without trying all the opportunities available.

I do appreciate your rationale for warning me about retaking As just for the sake of retaking. I hope I wouldn't need to as I know the workload isn't going to be easy, especially without much resources..

So what do you intend to do? If your appeal to Biz got rejected, will you accept other courses or retake As?

What is the first thing you would think about if u fail to get into Biz this yr?

It's actually not that far off other than GP?? My friend got into NTU biz with BBC and E for GP. The poster's grades for his/her H2s can actually make it into NTU biz/econs and SMU biz/econs for sure, but like the person said it's probably the S for GP which affected his/her chances.

U sure BBC for ntu biz? I thought the requirements was AAB/C (80RP)? Unless your friend got in by DA, or else it is almost impossible since it is so far off?

Even tho the highest level is defined as 'native level', my Japanese proficiency is the about the same as a typical SG Chinese's proficiency in Mandarin except that I can read Japanese articles without looking up the dictionary often. I started learning only 3 years ago and passed the exam 6 months ago so it is possible. Study every day and make Japanese part of your every day life I just had my german class today and got overwhelmed haha

Wow very impressed with you learning multi-languages. You can travel to countries and speak with the locals as well as able to read articles, books as well as watch videos without subs. Very envious.. Can you speak Korean too, since your username is a korean name?

Maybe the friend got BBC/E and AA for PW & H1. It'll be 80RP

I've accepted NTU Mathematical Sciences already and would probably go there if my appeal does get rejected. Retaking As has been on my mind as a last resort and I'm still considering if I should having approximately slightly more than 150 days it is definitely a tough decision. However, if I do intend to retake As I believe I would have the determination to pull through it and try my best and see how it goes from there.

The first thing I would think about if I fail to get into Biz this year would definitely be whats the second best option which would help me to head towards what I'd be interested to do which would be banking and finance and business analytics, which according to the course curriculum is covered in Mathematical Sciences though not as in depth as business itself.

[EDIT] Also for those who are talking about the possibility of people missing the IGP grade to get into business, I myself feel it is possible as I've checked w my school teachers as per the national standard this year it has dropped quite a fair bit as compared to the previous years, hence I'm trying my best to get into this course.

I learnt a bit of Korean, only enough to say this is a table and stuffs like that. Realised that German would probably be more fun and lucrative here in SG at least so I signed up for it^^ First,I need my degree though
