I blur on your statement. So, that means NSF no need to accept the offer until 2015? :O
Honestly, I also very blur on the reply they give me. I saw other friends of mine who are going into NS this year getting hardcopy admission letters from NUS and NTU.

Maybe it's just me but I think it's a nicer way for them to ask me to try my luck again next year...
nonetheless, I will still check my mail box often for the admission letter.

Many thanks for your reply. What added on to my worry is that my classmate from other nationality, having the same gpa, have gotten her offer much earlier. How come as a Singaporeans I don't seem to have the advantages at all?
The reason is because both of u are applying for different admission year. ur coursemate is entering this yr and not 2 yrs later. so dont mistake that he/she is competing with u. Therefore, u actually have priority over foreign students. becuz u will be getting the place 2 yrs b4 any other ppl.

Ya Accountancy , Biz should be easier bah i think so. Poly if score well = cfm go in uni. Jc very stressful leh.
Actually, I studied in Poly (NP Optometry) for 3 months before dropping out to enter JC (Arts) the following year. My experience was that those 3 months of Poly was tons harder than my entire 2 years of JC, though I'm sure my subject combi played a part because I'm just better at (and more fond of) Arts. Thank god those days are over!

How important is the test for NUS's discretionary admission? Mine is scheduled next week right before the interview.

"Grats, I think it's super important that you must excel in that interview test. you from jc or poly? Going for which course under discretionary admission? How is your result? Mind share?

Do take note from other forumer said: The questions they asked mainly revolved around your non- academic achievements(NAA).

Here are some example NAA interview questions collected from here forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/degree-programs-courses-70/ntu-non-academic-achievement-interview-2306494-2.html

1.They will ask questions like what was your greatest achievement.
2.What was your most memorable competition.
3.Why did u pick this course.
4.How does your NAA contribute to ur course?
5.how will you use ur NAA to contribute to the school.
hmm got quite a few others also like "tell me more bout urself

Can anyone please please rate my chances?

Course: financial informatics (NP)
Final GPA: 3.797
L1R4: 15
O level eng: C6
O level A math: no (took cacm in poly)

Courses applied:
NTU business, com sci
SMU business, information system
NUS business, IS, com sci

Courses offered:
None yet

Very anxious, till now still no calls
Thanks guys
Should be able to enter NTU com sci and SMU IS (provided you do well for the interview). Your chance for NUS might be lower since you do not have A.Math. Unless you have A2 for E.Math.

Thanks! I'm from Temasek Poly with 3.83 GPA and diploma with merit applying for Computer Science at NUS. Have to go through DA because I don't have A-math.

When you say interview test, do you mean the interview or the test before the interview? The person who called me said there will be problem solving and a math test.

Although he does not have A.Maths, he has taken CACM - Certificate in Advanced Computing Mathematics.

There is a special agreement between Ngee Ann Poly & NUS. Students who have taken CACM will be considered as having met the Add. Maths requirement.

Source : NUS - Office of Admissions : Local Applicants

In fact, the CACM is even better than Add. Maths, as it also allows exemption from the MA1301 Maths Proficiency Test.

So? I dont see how its better. Those who have Add. Maths wouldnt have to take the MA1301 in the first place. So isnt it the same?

Wrong...

Students with Add. Maths need to take MA1301 Proficiency Test.
Students with CACM are exempted from said test.

From the link I provided :
Note that students who have fulfilled the Mathematics requirement listed in (i), (ii) or (iii) are required to sit for MA1301 Maths Proficiency Test upon Admission.

iv) Applicants who do not fulfil the Mathematics requirements listed in (i), (ii) and (iii) but have obtained the following Diploma Plus Programme transcript would be deemed as having met the Mathematics requirements for the Computing courses and are not required to sit for MA1301 Maths Proficiency test:
