Unhappy

Can any seniors help me pleaseeeee?

I'm a poly graduate, graduated with a final GPA of 3.68, Diploma with Merit.
Didn't do so well for O levels though.. Only 18 points..

I chionged hard enough during my poly days to win several academic awards during my 3 years though and also received a poly scholarship for my academic achievements...

I have been rejected by both NUS and NTU while still pending for SMU... I am thinking of appealing to NTU... Can any seniors rate my chances of successfully entering either

1) Linguistics & Multilingual Studies
or
2) Sociology?

Any constructive advice will be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!!

What were your choices for NTU? Your GPA is way above both LMS or soci so you have a good chance. You might have gotten them if you put them in your initial choices. Are you local or foreign? What were your O level English grades?

I'm a Singaporean gal, born and bred.

For NUS, I only applied to FASS.

For NTU I applied in the following order:

1) Communications studies (Trying my luck here and failed)
2) Public Policy and Global Affairs
3) Sociology
4) Linguistics & Multilingual Studies
5) History

As you can see, for my NTU choices 2 and beyond, my GPA falls within the IGPs for all of the courses I applied for... I really don't understand why I couldn't get any of these

My O level English is A1.

Thank you so much for replying Havok_ex and cooknoodles!

What would my chances be of appealing to LMS or socio? Any seniors can help?

i would say appealing to socio would be a considerably wise move given that ur gpa is a lot higher than the igp of 3.47. although LMS igp of 3.49 isnt that far off, u have to consider that the number of places offered is significantly lesser than that of socio. then again local unis igp have never been constant for the past few years, so it might have risen a lot this year. i sent u some extra info to u via a private message, u might want to check ur inbox too.

Mine is still processing! Just went for my Biz DA interview last Wednesday. However I screwed it up so badly. Now I worrying whether they will straight away reject me or the subsequent choice will still consider me

review interviews are selected basic.i think is meant for those who perform not up to par during first round and yet, have the potential.
