im not sure about smu but i will just be offering my thoughts after close to half a sem in smu.
while smu always emphasizes on seminar style, etc. tbh the class participation percentage are not high, at least for year one, which accounts mostly 5-10% of overall grade. and from what i heard from seniors, class part % can only get as high as 15%, if not usually 5-10%. attendance is mostly counted in class part too. (im from smu biz btw, year 1)
i have another friend in nus biz. from what i heard is that one of the mod has a class part % of 30. and the prof expects really good answers.

hope this helps to those who are choosing a uni.

CP can get as high as 20%, for select courses, it can get to 40% with the additional 20% defined as something else. But yes, anything that is 20% CP, you can expect alot of outspoken people who want to earn those marks.

But most of the time, year one mods are damn slack and freshmen say the darnest things ever. Wait till you reach year 3/4, you are expected to analyze case and argue your points quantitatively and qualitatively.

Can attest to that.
30% class part for this particular module for y1s1. The other modules are either 10% or 20%. Even my General Education Module (in sociology dpt) has 20% cp.
Being quiet and fading into the background just doesn't cut it already. At least not for biz. Engineering has less (or almost no) focus on cp though.. just some suggestions..

Don't think relevance to course applied have much effect on chances, no prove on this. They care more about your GPA.
It still does.
But engineering to business can.
Business to engineering can't unless of course dwm in ntu but it's very low chance as well.

you must be kidding me
relevance only affect exemptions from what I have seen, really no prove on acceptance chances.
anyway, I believe 3.9 is good enough to get entry to NBS. course not related either.
because I did, 2 years ago that is.

Application for MS with subsidy

Hi Guys, I applied in Fall 2015 at NTU for MSc in Digital Media Technology. I was placed in reserve list but status changed to application not successful after August.

May I know from you guys that does MOE subsidy could be a reason to further shortlist candidates ? if Yes, I might not apply again for it if there is a tight quota (I was assuming it would be an encouraging way as you have to sign a 3yrs bond with govt).
