Hey I just found this thread over at brightsparks. It's a guess on how university admission score is counted for poly students. I have done the calculations. 'O' levels does play a significant role.

" Official Information Available :
Polytechnic Results - 80%
'O' Level Results - 20%

[Take C.GPA / 4.00 * 80 , to convert to 80 marks.]

[With 5 subjects contributing to 20 marks, and the difference between each grade constant, we can guess the following scale.

A1 4.00
A2 3.40
B3 2.60
B4 2.20
C5 1.60
C6 1.0]

==

So using my results, with a cGPA of 3.5 and O levels of 16.

For my Polytechnic; I would have (3.5/4)*80 = 70.
For my 'O' levels; I would have (3.4+2.6+2.6+2.2+2.2)/20 = 13.

Add em up and I would have a UAS of 83.

Compared to a person with gpa 4 but no O levels

For polytechnic; (4/4)*80=80.
For 'O' levels; 0.

This person would have a UAS of 80.

=

I have reason to believe this makes sense because someone posted that his foreign friend with 3.97 got rejected. I believe there are a substantial amount of polytechnic students with GPA of 3.5~3.7. You add that with an O level results of 15 points and you will still get a value higher than 80.

Still, it's not official and only a guess on how it's computed.
I'm not sure if they are computing it using L1R4 or L1R5 though, but it should be L1R4.

Just a few questions guys...

First of all, Computer Science and Information System what are the main differences and job prospect

Secondly, i heard from one of my friend that for example my case....
2012 Intake, i applied for Information System in NUS and i got into it
Now, 2013 currently in NS, what if i apply again for other courses for example NTU,
1st choice Business
2nd choice Accountancy
3rd choice Science
4th Mech Eng
5th sociology
and they offer me my 3rd choice Science, will my position for 2012 information system be forfeited?
Eh from what i know from nus letter is that.
If u are offered a new choice ur previous reserved ccourse auto withdraw but if u want to take back ur reserved course u have to write to the school with reason. And if all ur choice is rejected u will still have ur reserved course

not say lower but priority is given to students who have just graduated this yr. for example, a student with the same grade as u but he just graduated this year, he will get the priority over u. =)
That means I will get a lower chance of entering..
My grades are BCD/C GP B PW B Chi A, do you think there's any chance to get into environemental engineering in NUS/NTU?
Considering the 10% for NTU is BCC/C.
Thanks a lot

It wont increase ur chance. it simply means that if u r rejected for biz, there is no more other courses for them to consider u for.

But i still have NUS IS right? the slot that is already reserved for me.
The reason of me not wanting to put 2nd to 5th choice is becoz i am only interested in business, and if i anyhow put my other 4 choices, and business reject me, i will be offered my 2nd choice( for example), and my NUS IS will be forfeited automatically.
