Did my History interview with NTU today ((,: If the prof says "I hope to see you next year", is that a good sign or does he say that to all candidates? A bit hard to read his body language hahaha

Was offered Global Impact Scholarship to read Accountancy and Info Systems. Went down for interview on 20 Mar and received the official offer via email a week later
Congrats on your SMU scholarship offer! Wanted to clarify, when you say that you were interviewed on 20 March and was offered "a week later", do you mean that you received scholarship offer, or did you mean admission offer? Thanks!!

P.S. Are you matriculating in 2018?

Hi everyone!
I am a 2017 private candidate, retook A levels because I totally flunked my A levels back in 2016.

My grades last year was 65, ADS/C (horrifying, look at how uneven that was).
This year after retaking, I managed to get BBC/C, RP76.25 w/o HMTL, and 77.625 with HMTL.

ANNDDD.
I just received direct offer from wkwsci 10 min ago for communication studies (NTU smsed me)!!!!! So extremely happy!!!

I wanted to share this here, mainly to tell those who didn't do well in the 1st A levels (yas I'm eyeing you guys with <70 RP, esp those from arts/hybrid stream without SPAs), do place retaking as an option for consideration as you sit through the long wait of "admission processing"!!
Because if you can tahan half a year of mugging you might be able to land yourself into a much more favorable course of your choice the next year!!!

And for me, I am so grateful to have repeated, and didn't just settle myself into some random course that I have really no interest in for the sake of entering Uni. University choice might really affect your life paths and future pursuits so don't take it too lightly!


As for those who are still waiting,
some information from Reddit:

Business, I know someone with 76ish RP receiving offers from NTU and NUS, and for Accounting there's someone who got in with 77ish RP.

I guess this year IGP dropped for a lot of courses so guys, if your application is still processing, don't lose hope yet!! ( ´▽` )ノ

All the best, and Good luck everyone!

Hi, can anyone share with me whether FASS or smu soss is better? Rlly need advice on this! Thks!
Hi, it depends on whether u prefer seminar style lessons or standard lecture-tutorial style of teaching. I heard from a senior in fass that 1 module in fass is about 1 lecture & 1 tutorial per week btw.

The benefits of smu:
1. You get to interact and actively engage yourself during lessons.
2. More internship and exchange opportunities than nus.
3. Many students take double majors and more % taking double degree.
4. More specialisation tracks.
5. Higher employment and salary on average according to the employment survey.

The downsides of smu:
1. Competition in smu is fierce.
2. Less campus life (in terms of hall etc)
3. The % of honours students there is lower than fass as it is harder to achieve honours in smu.
4. Less opportunities to make friends (Depends on your personality)

The advantages of fass:
1. Lecture-tutorial style of learning, good for shy students who prefer mugging in a corner
2. Higher % of honours
3. Greater cohort size >> bell curve affects students less
3. You can take double majors too by DA or in the 2nd/3rd year
4. More campus life
5. Can stay in RC/hall etc.
6. For eg. econs is more academic and math inclined
7. World QS ranking

The disadvantages of NUS:
1. Must find internships & exchange opportunities via the student (?) office.
2. Heavier and more modules esp for double major students (be prepared). I was offered double majors via DA, I counted 4 more modules for NUS than smu for the same double major combination.
3. More in depth and harder modules than smu (from my senior).
4. Hall/RC life may affect your academics.
5. Less specialisation tracks than smu.

Disclaimer ** What I think is subjective, I don’t mean to offend any NUS/SMU students reading this 😅
This is the summary of my ‘research’ haha xD. I am also deciding between nus and smu. Currently reading some year 1 stuff to see which one I like more I got SMU econs, NUS FASS DMP and NBS offer too

I thought the highest bonus mark you can get from HMTL is 1 RP?
HMTL bonus points is not strictly 1, it depends on the grade you get. An A in HMTL gives a little more than 1 point I think. So together with the additional 1.25 bonus from 1st choice and his base RP (sorry, I think His base is 70 point something), it totals up to be 73ish

Good to know you're doing well. However, I think it's impossible to get 68.25 with ADS/C even if you score A for GP, PW and MT.
