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

Nope. I applied through the normal poly admission exercise. Yeah, I am kinda surprise too. Totally didnt expect to receive the outcome this early.

How's the gap like from Poly to local U (Biz) ?

Sent from Samsung GT-I9505 using GAGT
Assuming exact same course? then the gap is not very big for most modules except the mathematical ones like Microecons and Business analytics which involves more logic and math.. even JC econs is not that mathematical.

its not that hard to do well choose your battles wisely.

During 2011 & 2012 there were 2 seperate arrangements for students who did not meet the Amaths requirement or the EL requirement.

Its been combined. So you have to go for the interview cum written test if you dont meet either requirement.

During my year it was C5 for Add maths and B3 for English. Might have changed by now.

Over the phone/email they might have made it sound like a big thing.

But its actually just a short 10-15 min essay write about 200 words.

The essay has a 2nd purpose in addition to testinf your english - it also lets the interview know more about you. The topic is usually like my Ambition, my dream career, my hobbies, my role model, my favorite business leader etc.

protip: current & global affairs will impress the interviewers. Traits of a biz sch student.
