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 68.25, 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!
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.

hello, i went for SMU business discovery day 23rd March. i received the offer for the course via email 2 days after attending the event. as far as i know i think everyone who attended will be given an offer, we did have to register using our IC/FIN before the event starts and the host told us to wait for official offer one week after the event.
since you were overseas hence didnt get your IC scanned, i think you should contact smu again to clarify your offer, probably by emailing the person who emailed you the discovery day invite.
hope things will go smoothly!
Okay sure thank you so much for the info!

Hi ! I just went for the interview on 13/4. The interview is a discussion on an article, it’ll be given prior to the interview. It is a group interview with about 5 people per group and 2 professors in the room. I can PM you a link on a pretty detailed experience by another person who attended it too this year!
