DA/NAA

Hi everyoneee, literally just created an account to post here.

Anyway, I'm really curious about what kind of achievements people (who got in through DA/NAA) have. Last year when I went to the NUS open house, a student told me that he knew someone from Architecture who scored 3.0 GPA but got in through DA.

Anyone has any idea?

That person prolly had experience working in large interior design firms, maybe won design awards (YDA, red dot e.t.c.), or participated/represented in national competitions that exhibits his talents, not just in academics.

There are too many grads using results without achievements trying to enter uni, so DA/NAA is there.

Erm can I ask if I don't have any achievements should I just ask my poly lecturer to be the appraiser anyway? Wayang by using the leadership qualities, positive influence, integrity, etc etc.

Or just totally ignore the DA/NAA part? I already wrote some random cca and the 300 words part.

Just go ahead with the submission, but don't put too much hope on it.

As those qualities you mention are very common and is expected of any applicants.
Generally NAA refers to achievements outside school, example international olympiads, national/international sports competition and arts competition, active community service with a NGO, NYAA, entrepreneurship ventures, WorldSkills, competitions related to the course.

I guess you can say good bye to a large part of your social life when you get into the computer-related course.
- If you don't study hard in maths, a possible scenario will be,
- You fail maths courses during semester 1, then your curriculum plans get interrupted because you have to repeat in semester 2, you have a separate timetable from your clique, you gradually get further from your clique. You fail again in sem 2, then it snowballs into other sem, you can't move on to courses with math pre-requisite, life becomes a mess.

So yeah... if you have not been actively doing programming stuff that requires mathematical skills in your leisure time, example, trying to create a mobile app/website/building own server, my guess is computer courses are not for you.
Similar to social sciences courses, those people are expected to be reading current affairs, upcoming course-related studies and actively have opinions on them. Example, writing a blog or on SNS and sending opinion articles to news agency.

Uh oh... really? mind sharing your gpa? just for a feel... I cant pick up those thick accents too haha. Maybe ill consider something else. Problem for me is that with my gpa, theres nothing much for me to pick and choose. Thanks for replying as well
5th Sem CGPA - 3.72

I think with your gpa, you might stand a chance to enter that course
Are you going to serve NS for the next 2 years? If so, you can wait for the next year and apply with your 6th sem for better chances (provided you do well )

Anyway, you can also try SMU. Their applications are not so results-orientated, but whether you can fare well in their interviews too.

if you are a guy, do well for your upcoming exam..

apply now, if didn't get offer,
apply again during your NS with 6semster CGPA..
try to pull up to 3.5+ to be on the safer side.
