Orientation camps are over for SBS. Didnt manage to go due to army. Anyway, I'm going into the same course too. and the orientation week can be found on ntu website. SBS welcome ceremony is on 5Aug2015 0930. All the best studying in SBS.

Can't decide whether i should give up appealing to the unis this year and wait for next years' admissions or try again. My appeals to FASS & NTU Socio got rejected. My RP is slightly below the cut off for FASS so that i understand but i clearly met socio's cut off so I'm pretty disappointed. Furthermore my admission to SMU Social Sci got rejected as well, still waiting for appeal results because i only sent in my appeal pretty late.

Actually I don't understand why SMU rejected me because my rp clearly meets its cut-off?? (major sian)

Anyway, what are the odds that sending another appeal email to ntu soci/smu social sci would increase my chances of being accepted?
sorry but can i check how do I see the cut off for the RP for the specific courses and uni? it doesnt state in the IGP right?

Meeting profs

Just wondering if anybody has had any experiences of just going down to the faculty's office and seeking to meet the relevant profs after they have failed their appeals? In particular NTU Comms/ NUS FASS/ SMU BIZ

Now would be abit too late already. Its mid-July. School starts in less than a month. You can try, but it boils down to luck. Most profs would be on holiday around this time. Also, you'd need to see a prof who is nice enough to hear your case. But as a tip, dont try the deans of the faculty. They wont bother.

It doesnt state a specific cut-off because there is no specific cut-off. Take the IGP as a gauge.

Thanks for the advice But I guess I won't bother to appeal anymore... Shall just enroll into the school I've accepted and study there already...

It might surprise you but some people are actually in it for the quality education.

It is possible to find job with a relevant minor

for e.g. if I major in Computer Science, minor in Chinese

can I work in the chinese industry with a chinese minor?

Thought you went NUS? Decided to choose NTU ah?

There's campus wide wifi, but heard from my friends that the wifi strength in Hall areas are virtually non-existent.
