The length of your stay here doesn't change anything. Being a PR pits you against foreign scholars who are applying. If you're a guy, you can try again after you convert your PR to citizenship during NS.

Got the darned rejection message by NUS too, so I am planning my appeal now.
Just a question, should I write why I want to enter NUS or why I want to enter the certain faculty? Will the admissions office pass on my appeal to the faculty for consideration or will it purely stay within the admissions office?

Any senior here has appealed before and would like to share their appeal experience? I would really like to know the success rate, especially if appealing to the same course again (because NUS emphasized that we should appeal to a different course instead).
Thanks!!

Like I said before. There is a cap on 'international students'. Yes, you can be a "Local applicant" because you have done the SG A-levels or poly diploma. But this does not make you a 'local student'. You are stil an international student regardless of your educational background. Just because you are a 'local applicant' does not mean you are local student. You can be an "international student" and a "local applicant" at the same time. The former is based on your nationality, the latter is based on your educational background.
MoxLotus and anglewing like this.
