Hi,would like to ask a few questions

1)NTU's QET test is not during year1 isit?cause I went into the webpage and saw that its for 2014-2015 students and i tried checking if im eligible the webpage shows "no records found" as im considered 2015-2016 intake,meaning year2 then take test?

2)The freshman guide mentioned that: The normal load for Year 1 students is 5 courses per semester, which is the maximum.(and it shows that theres already 5 core modules chosen for me)means the max core courses is 5,but got somemore additional courses isit?
Because in step 2,they also mentioned can add/drop the GER prescribed electives or unrestricted electives,and must complete 5 GER-PE electives..meaning in sem1 im supposed to take 10 modules isit?

3)Students with Polytechnic Diplomas are eligible for exemptions from up to 2 of the GER-PEs above. The School will be getting in touch with the Polytechnic graduates on the details of the exemptions.
Does this mean confirm can exempt or case-by-case basis?

Im so confused...plus got what unrestricted means fulfill requirements for minor...Minors supposed to be helpful in career isit?? can someone please help to clear my doubts?thank you so much

Does ntu provide free wifi for our mobile phones? Cause I'm going to stay in hostel. �
Yup there's free WiFi but the signal isn't really very strong in the room that I was previously staying in It's recommended that you bring a modem there.

1. QET should be taken in the first semester, maybe the site isn't updated (?)

2. You can clear the 5 GER-PE requirements over the next 3/4 years so yeah.. No rush to clear all of them in the first semester

I'd say a minor is only useful if it complements your major.

There's 2 types of electives that you'll have to take- GERPE and UE (unrestricted electives). So for your case, you'll only have to take 5 GERPEs, not too sure how many UEs you'll have to take since it varies from course to course.

And yup, minor isn't compulsory. You can actually drop it anytime you don't feel like taking it.

Hmm.. It depends bah. For my case the friends that I make in uni are really those hi-bye ones You can try joining hall or CCAs to widen your social circle I suppose.

1. QET should be on 4th August morning timing this year as well.
2. I thought last week of july then can see timetable for freshie? You should just take another GERPE per semester till you clear them.
3. Not sure, but I applied for exemptions when school starts last year and they were given to me.

Minor only 5 modules. Second major is 11 modules. Of which 2 must be level 4.

Seeking advice

Hi all,

I want to get into NTU Accountancy really badly but was rejected this year.
Everything didn't work out even after appealing.
I did apply for SMU Business too and they put me on hold since the first day I applied and I was rejected this morning. I didn't have a chance to appeal.

I will be trying again next year but meanwhile is there anything I can do to strengthen my application and ensure that I can get into NTU Accountancy next year?

Below are my grades:
CGPA: 3.6828 with CCA achievement of Gold
L1R4: 10 (9 after deducting CCA)
L1R5: 13

Also, I do not have "O" level additional mathematics. But I did an additional mathematics module in poly on top of my diploma. (My lecturer told me that the cert is equivalent to O level Amaths)

Thanks!

The IGP is 3.79. You are borderline and I think you already know it too.

So you got chance, but really need luck and the applicants next year.

Your L1R4 got less than 15 points right? If yes then I think you got 50% chance.
