Haha im from jc
oh.. in that case, the only explanation will be that the course you have chosen is really competitive this year. Which sch/course did you choose? (Remember IGP is only a guideline doesnt guarantee anything) e.g. NUS comp sci have 10%tile of BBB last time, and a year later, its AAB. So a person with ABB will think he/she stand a chance but actually a borderline case. This year its AAA LOL.

It might be better to appeal to another choice course. According to NTU Appeal faq:

"If you are not offered any programme that you had previously opted, it is highly unlikely that your appeal to the same programme will be successful. However, you are not precluded from appealing for the same programme that you had selected."

Order of choice is important especially when applicants have similar admission grades.

AFAIK, interviews are only conducted for ppl who has failed some subject requirements. If your admission grades are too low, they will just reject without interview. (same for appeal).

PS: This is the process for most faculties in NUS, except for those faculties where interview is a mandatory process (med/law)

I heard they do interview borderline cases for NTU, not sure about appeal cases.

But for non academic achievements they sometimes do call you up for interviews to verify your achievements
