Hi Guys, I've applied for Psychology at NTU the second time this year. My GPA is 3.70, L1R4 being 9 and I've failed to enter again. However, my friend who scored 3.69, having a L1R4 of 10, managed to enter.

Can I just ask those with experience, is A maths a priority here? Because that is the only thing that separates us. If so, is there any way or method I can appeal for this? Thanks!
According to the subject requirements for A-level students, they do require a good grade for H1 math:

So there is an emphasis on math. Not to mention psych itself has quite a lot of stats modules. Having no A-math means you will be at quite a disadvantage. If you have done stats modules in poly, you could appeal on those grounds.

Just realized that I can access the appeal page in SMU self service portal to make an appeal but my application still states that it is under review, does this mean that I am rejected but they did not change it yet? Can anyone confirm pls?

Hi there! I've been accepted into smu and i can also access the appeal page. I think the appeal page is now opened to everyone to make an appeal so I dont think u are rejected. If u are rejected most probably ur application will state that u are rejected instead of it is under review. All the best to u

Hey... me too!


Appeals can be submitted by those whose application outcomes are known (offer or reject) . If your application is still pending, you may wish to wait for SMU to inform you of the outcome in writing.

What's ur GPA? Actually smu won't call people for interview in May right? Or I have high chance of getting rejection letter?

Hey I managed to get an offer from NTU Psychology on my second attempt after failing last year. I've got a pretty similar academic profile as you - GPA 3.70, L1R4 5. I don't know if scoring well or having taken Additional Mathematics for O's will affect your admission chances into the course but I did obtain an A1 grade for it. I received the outcome in early April, and it came as a (really pleasant) surprise too because I did not even hit the previous year's tenth percentile.

So were you able to access the page where they asked you to select the reason for appeal and for entering your essay? Because i am able to and was wondering if i have already been rejected but they didnt update the application status yet

Edit: tried to submit an appeal but apparently it went through. Probably have to call admissions office to delete that tomorrow morning...
