How is 20% not a big difference?
If one takes 1 olvl subject each year throughout poly and NS,he can possible get a perfect 20%

With ref to amaths/phy, this is true. Thats why some universities have maths or what not exams before candidates are accepted
Think about it. Would it even be worth it? Considering that poly's study load is already quite heavy if one intends to get a GPA of 3.6 and above to be eligible for most university courses. Meaning that you could only do it post-poly. 2 years of NS + 3 years more of doing nothing but one O-level subject. Assuming one does not work as well. Then yes, a person can waste 3 years of his life to attain a perfect O level score. Then can get into NUS. Wooohooo. That is IF that person can do it. Just because a person takes ONE subject a year doesnt mean he can still achieve an A1. The amount of effort, money and time wasted just to get a perfect score spanning over 5 years is not worthwhile at all. The returns is just an extra say 5-10% for his admissions. If a person has serious ego issues that he die die MUST get into NTU/NUS then he might consider it. Otherwise, the rest of the rational bunch of applicants would not go to such extreme lengths.

The deadline for application is tomorrow. Isn't it too late to be asking now?

Unless you're just in Year 2 Sem 2, then you better focus on pulling up your GPA.

GPA 3.297 don't have many options. You can't choose the course. The course will be choosing you.

Agree, My choice currently is just to apply to course that hover around my gpa range. See if the course choose me. I saw a few course at are lower then mine gpa(few as in 1-3), just thought I could try it out.
Anw is there a good method to discover which course is interesting/suitable to a person?

Wow so fast? Did you apply during the recent poly admissions exercise or through some other special admissions?

I frankly speaking wouldn't say a poly workload as being heavy but than, to each his own. It depends on what you study as well, because there are overlaps between o level subjects and poly subjects

For instance, you could take up o level POA if you were an accounting student, or physics if you went into engineering. There are even courses in polytechnic that teach additional maths.There will be overlaps, not completely but to a certain extend.

Now back to my point about there being a difference. Imagine taking poa after you take a few years of accounting modules, or taking maths or physics after studying it at a poly level for a few semesters..Do you think they wouldnt know you would have studied this in poly?

Yea that's fast..my time i waited about 2 weeks to get the physical acceptance letter, which was already considered early

I think it should be alot faster now since they switched to an electronic system(email) since last year?

Did you not apply during and before these 2 years?

I worked for 2 years NS for 2 years meaning if i eventually get in this year there will be a 4 years gap between the day i left Poly and the day i admit into the school.

Looking at the past year IGPs, I would say you have a pretty good chance. Your gpa is actually higher than the NUS comp science igp too. Did you apply for NUS as well?
