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?
Wow. The IGP must have really shot up this year. HSS IGP is always in flux. Because of their small intake, their IGP can quickly change each year depending on demand. I would recommend that you appeal to soci since its intake is about 50 students more than LMS. So the chances are higher.

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!!!

Not advice, but hope this helps
My friend went for LMS interview last week. Haven received news till now. She got a gpa of 3.73

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
I only applied to FASS though and I didn't have any interviews!
Hope they release my application results before Friday so I can choose whether or not to apply to another course..

eh i dont think so. Why is it that you can't log in? When my application had been processed i loggged into the joint acceptance portal a few hours later and saw the offer... and then NUS texted me that I've been offered a course the next morn

Hmm one think I can think the reason why you were rejected is because they evaluate an applicant holistically. If you did not pass the holistic evaluation you will not be shortlisted for the interview.

SMU is becoming stringent nowadays due to demand exceeding supply. If i recalled only 1 out of 7 or 8 students are accepted into the university. Admission rate of the different schools I am not sure.
