Nanyang Poly(Biomedical Engineering)
cGPA for 5 sems = 3.94
NUS (Mechanical/Bioengineering/Physics)
NTU (Mechanical/Bioengineering/Physics)

Are there any chances for me? I dun have O level cert as i am not local . i have the CCA of silver which is B+ and ITE cert with Merit.

Thanks in advance.

10e5x@1610 10-01-2013 08:38 AM

Although i am not gg to apply for the other two but i would like to ask on behalf on others. What about SIT and SUTD? :)

10e5x@1610 10-01-2013 03:26 PM

Hi anyone know roughly when will uni posting result be out? I know the application starts on 1st of feb. Those who had applied last year may i know when will the result be out?

MoxLotus 10-01-2013 04:13 PM

I think uni will than look 100% at your poly results instead of (80:20) for people with o levels.

Looking at ur results, 3.94 is quite an outstanding results, also high chance to get COM.

NTU and NUS bioengineering if u apply chances of u going in will be very high as ur cGPA now is higher than the 90percentile, same goes for Mechanical Engineering, and physical.

But the main disavantage u may face is that u have no A math and EL

iirc, priority is given to the fresh poly grads. so u might have to wait in the queue a bit.

Incorrect. Please refer to the following.

For foreign applicants without the local GCE 'O' level results, their applications will be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
You will not have any score for the GCE O level weightage.
However, there are cases where applicants were able to gain admission based on their good poly results only.

maybe u should take a look at the admission thread from previous year. This has alrdy been verified by many foreign students without O lvl. They really waited for very long even tho they have 3.9x GPA =)

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?

I think one of the main difference for IS and CS is that if u r intending to go into research, CS is a much better choice. The reason is because IS in NUS does not require the students to take higher lvl technical modules. e.g. algorithm design and analysis

How about the job prospect of Information System?

If u have a choice will u take NTU Business? NUS IS? SMU IS?

This is how i perceive these 3 courses.

NTU BIZ - Sell product without any product/technical knowledge

NUS IS - Can sell IT Product with Good product knowledge but less vocal

SMU ISM - Between NTU BIZ and NUS IS

In fact, the job prospect for IT career is rather good especially if u join the sales team where the highest salary is. But personally, I feel that the prospect is not as gd as US. where their pay is really comparable with wall st =)

2nd time admitting to NUS/NTU
 
Hi all, this is my first time posting on forum.
I received my A levels results in March 2012 last year but regrettably I did not get the course I wanted and ended up rejecting NIE/NTU.
Can I ask if the chance of going into local universities lower then those students who will be applying for the first time?
Thanks a lot in advance: )

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. =)

I am not every sure whether the programme accepted on the previous year will be shown. No worries anyway, as you can always reject the newly offered programme to hold on to the one you accepted last year.

Hi, I would like to ask about re-taking O levels.

I am currently in my final sem in poly and I predict myself to graduate with a 3.50. 2-3 years back, a 3.5 is able to stand a chance to enter NUS. Nowadays, the standard has been raised to at least 3.7.
Say, 5 years down the road, do you guys think that the standard will continue to rise?
Will the introduction of SUTD, SIT and UniSIM affect the IGP for next year?

Uni admission for poly graduates count 80:20 where 80% is the polytechnic results and 20% is the O level results. I got 16 points for my O levels but I know that I can do better now. I only plan to re-take 3 subjects for O levels; namely Add Maths, Maths and English. I would also like to know if CCA is even counted in the calculation for their 20%.

If I re-take these 3 subjects, does it count as an entirely fresh O level or will I be able to combine it with my previous O levels?
I have already done a search on this but all I can find is combining 'O' level results to enter a polytechnic, not a university.

I am interested in taking up the following courses; NUS Nursing and NTU Bioengineering, both which I am slightly above the 10th percentile.
Has anybody ever had a GPA above the 10th percentile but still got rejected? If so, how far were you off from the 10th percentile? I understand that this is subjected to how well your current batch performs.

One of my friends was rejected. His GPA was 3.97 and he was from RP. I dun know why he was being rejected. May be he is a foreigner. Now i am worried that I will be rejected by NUS also :(

They do not consider ur CCA in the uni admission. CCA is only gd for scholarship application. And they only consider the O lvl score taken in 1 seating. u cant combine 2 seatings into 1.

I dun think so.
For my case, in 2008 i took my o levels in my secondary school, and i retook English in 2010 as a private candidate.
In the application form for NUS, it allows you to select the years u have took ur o levels and u simply can just put the best grade and send them the result o level slips.

My 2cents is that SUTD and SIT does not really have a direct impact of the demand of NUS/NTU/SMU, simply because they are quite new. SIT/SUTD opens up opportunity to those people with GPA range of 3.0 to 3.5.

As for the standard for NUS/NTU/SMU, its hard to say but i think it will not drop back to what u mention 2-3 years back the kind of GPA range, mainly due to the demand, and more people with good L1B4 going into poly with high graduating GPAs. Y-to-Y basis, engineering course will be maintain around the same, Business will go up, and i think the most volatile courses will be computing courses.

As for your case, are you going into NS soon? or are you going straight into uni? your 16 points is L1R5 or L1B4? ur seconday CCA record can be taken into consideration only if u achieve outstanding results, where there is a section for you to write ur CCA achievements and not in the 20%.

Also, why u wan retake the 3 subject? maybe u can share with us ur results for o levels. All i know is that some courses requires you to get at least B4 for Amath inorder to get into it

Which poly are you from btw?

Ok in that case, the best way to clarify it is to email the admission office.
Anyway they have to allow the applicants to select the year not because they allow 2 seatings. it is more like there are applicants who takes higher MT which means that they sit for their MT 1 yr b4 their o lvl.

That box is meant for people who wants to be considered under the Direct school admission scheme with outstanding CCA. It does not add any bonus to ur admission score as DSA will accept students on discrete basis.

messier 14-01-2013 11:27 PM

@Tomas :

Yes, will be entering NS this year. 16 points is L1B4. Quite high IMO. I see most of the GPA required by NUS/NTU needs a 3.7 to be able to stand a chance.

For me, I know lots of people (in my course and outside my course) with a GPA above 3.5. I would say I'm at a disadvantage against them and I think my O levels (especially having an Amaths advantage) would be able to help, even if it's just a little.

Retake A maths because I failed. A maths is important for engineering course (would prefer to get in NTU Bioengineering). I think it would be much easier for me now because I am able to score for my Engineering Maths and Higher Mathematics...the topics covered in Engineering Maths I and II is the exact same thing I did in A maths.

Would like to bring my E. Maths from B3 to A1 as well.
The other subjects quite ok with Combined Humans with B3 and Science with A2. My last subject is D&T with B4. As for my English, I'm contended with the result but I believe I should score higher.

I really think it's not worth re-taking O levels Combined Humans or D&T, which is why I would re-take only these 3; Maths, A. Maths and English, if NS allows.
Worst to worst, if both uni reject me, I got offers from overseas.

I'm studying in SP, dip in Bioengineering.

CCA achievement wise, I have heard of it but I don't really think it's very important. I mean, it would help if you're a national athlete, super active volunteer with NYAA gold or win some prestigious competition, but anything less isn't worth mentioning. The most I can write is representing for the school team, but I doubt it will help anyway.

Anyways, I take it that the 20% only count O levels raw score. I was hoping that my CCA would be included as well...which brings my 16 points to 14 points.

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.

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

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
