most of the time , if u apply early , U shouldn't get rejected . It's only when U apply late and there are limited slots left , they then start screening for superficial traits and stuff

Actually, if you're a foreigner, no matter which course you apply to, it will be very hard to get in. The quotas are set to only 18% foreign students for NUS/NTU/SMU.

That said, courses that are less popular among Singaporeans are easier for foreigners to get in. Courses such as Engineering(Electrical, Mech, Civil) or Science is usually less popular among Singaporeans. Whereas popular courses like Biz/Acct/SocialScience/Humanities/Aerospace would be harder for foreigners to gain admissions to because there are more Singaporeans vying for those places.

That said, the advice above is solid. Don't apply for a course just so that you can get into university. IF you get into a course that you are not passionate in, you'd just graduate with poor grades and waste 4 years of your life. Apply for a course only if you have genuine interest/passion.
Hi all. I'm an anomaly here. I had a rank point of 86.25 and applied for NUS chemical engineering and NTU Accountancy. Apparently, I did not get into the supposedly- easier-for-foreigners-to-get-into course. Instead, got into a course with cut throat competition. Idk. Things happened.

Are international students supposed to pay confirmation fee first before we receive the Student Pass email or should we wait for the email first then only we proceed to pay? Thanks a lot!

Maybe they haven't update yet. Not sure whether SBS has a orientation week or not.
Not everyone goes for camp, you will be fine!

yeah, I applied on the last day..

Try the orientation week/freshmen welcome ceremony.
