Lol what.. that's stupid
I don't think it's possible to gatecrash cause need to rsvp for the tea session. So I think they'll take note who's attending it.

All diploma doesn't have direct year 2 and all diploma can apply to computer science in nus. There is module exemption but most of it is elective and some of the module exemption u can just take test in nus if you are from different course. If u are talking about ntu there is a person who got in from bio course if not wrong, even so the module exemption given by ntu is also elective. I don find where the relevant part important because I am from engineering course and it obviously not relevant to com science just that it in the list. Btw I got in com science...
Hi lamerena, u applied to ntu comp sci? Mind sharing your gpa? No news on my side....

Well, that pretty much explains it. The applicants you are competing with are foreign scholars, who have grades very similar to yours. So it will be more difficult for you.

Like I said it doesn't haha cause they were talking about relevant diploma and nus allow all diploma to apply. I am talking more on admission part just that relevant grant u exemption and one of module can be taken test to exempt doesn't have to be relevant course

Edit: what I am trying to say is there is no clear indication that a person with relevant diploma is prefer over a one without since nus allows all diploma to apply.For NTU I think they are quite flexible cause diploma with merit can apply any courses which I had gotten.
oh well. just a word of advice, if your diploma is not relevant, better dont join the course. u will suffer =). I know quite a number of irrelevant diploma grads suffering in nus comp sci.

I am only quoting you because you mentioned there isn't any relevant diploma to computer science, which I corrected you in.

Not sure about whether having relevant diploma would help in application or not though. But there isn't any proves in anything or whatsoever. who knows, it's just the opinions of yours and his after all.
The term acceptance would be more appropriate than apply/application.
nope relevant diploma doesnt help in application. It only helps in exemption as well as how well you will survive in that course. If you think the irrelevant dip is fine and wanna try, go ahead. However, u will be owned by others with experience in that field.

hi all, im a poly applicant (still in NS, will only start uni next year) who has received offers from both nus and ntu. however, i am still undecided as to which course i should pursue since i intend to appeal out of my ntu offer to another choice.

as such, should i accept the offers from both unis, or am i only allowed to pick one? i heard rumours that accepting offers from more than one uni might lead to the unis retracting their offers.

What u mean? Mine changed to received tho.
Are u talking abt nus? If so on the status page must see outcome of application instead of processing/received. Don't worry much. They email u once u are offered.

Whatever your offer, you need to accept it through the Joint Acceptance Portal, which is shared by all of them. So you will only be able to accept one offer. Once you accept an offer, your other offers are automatically rejected.
