What are my chances of getting into SMU next year

CGPA: 3.5
Are there any chances of me entering SMU?
I didn't apply with 5 semesters this year although i should have coz my GPA dipped a bit.
I was thinking what are my chances of getting into SMU next year.
Are there any ways to maximise my chances of securing a position there?

3.5 is just on the line (unless your cohort bombed and 3.5 out of 4 ranks in the top 5). Depending on what the Goddess of Guan Yin decides on how your luck sways, you may or may not get in depending on the course of your choice

Hey, like everyone else, I would like to know if I stand a chance in this year's ultra competitive rat race to Uni.

My 'A' lvl is bad and standing at 62.5 RP (Combi: PCMG)
Currently setting my eyes on SMU SIS after having a tryout at an online start-up during NS (ORD last Dec). Trying my shot at SMU/NUS/NTU Discretionary Admission with several leadership and volunteering experience throughout secondary, JC and NS.

In sec school, I was merely in an exco committee (Head of Discipline), chosen as an ambassador for SG Youth Olympic Games School Twinning Partnership and 182.5 CIP hours.

In JC, I was also in the exco committee in my rockslimbing CCA and clinched an overall 'A' Div Boys Championship (Does that count?) in National School Rock Climbing Competition during JC1. I was also selected to organise my JC Orientation camp back in 2014.

During NS, I was a spec and have taken up volunteering outside at an organisation for kids with chronic illness. I was the Deputy Director for Programmes Portfolio there, planning camps and organising activities for kids there in 2016. This year, I've switched to Marketing and Communications in the same organisation.

However, due to the online business that my friend and i tried out, I wish to study at SMU SIS to further my interest.

Do you guys think I actually stand a chance for SMU DA?
(I applied for SMU on 27th Jan this year and merely received the seminar invitation 1-2 weeks after applying)

Oh, my 'O' lvl stands at raw 14 points with English B3 and Add/E Math at A2.

Possible chance of DA. I know alot of friends who got into SMU SIS with straight Bs but this was 3 years ago so not sure if still applicable, knowing how popular SIS is nowadays

SMU cut-off for GPA is quite high. Most of my poly batch mates scored at least 3.8. If your dream is to get into SMU, I would suggest consider going to a private university first, work and then do an MBA at SMU.
