A foreign student just got rejected form NUS FASS. Didn't expect this result. What is the usual grade and CCAs of NUS FASS applicants?
You can see the usual grades for most locals here:

http://www.nus.edu.sg/oam/gradeprofi...ramme-igp.html

Foreign student intake is only capped at 16-18%. On top of that, more foreign students are taken into courses which are unpopular with the locals such as engineering and science courses.

Courses like med, law, biz, FASS are more popular with the locals, hence, the intake for foreigners is less.

computer engineering for both.. rank point a bit higher than yours..

They say only 16-18% of cohort will be filled up with foreigners??

Does that include us? Or that only includes international students with international qualifications? (not a levels)
