SMUís technical skills are far superior than NUS (I would believe so) because the mods provided are really hard core programming. At least in terms of your logical thinking, youíre given a solid ground (granted that youíve so many prog mods from NUS)

Ultimately, it really boils down on your own choices!




Hahahahaha... 👏👏👏👏👏

Itís a long shot, but asking on behalf of a friend who applied for nursing, has anyone known if anyone screwed up the interview but managed to get in because of high RP or GPA, and if such stories exist for other courses requiring interviews ?

Hi, the interview that i went was a duo interview with another guy with 2 profs. Before you go in you will receive 2 "essay" like questions fr u to ans (random questions) on the paper and notes to discuss later on. The only question they asked me was why NBS? Followed by discussing 1 out of the 2 topic question. You will take turns with your partner to discuss and comment on your respective topic. Overall dont think too much and just be honest and yourself ! Try to ask some questions to them about NBS if possible! Good luck

What's your existing GPA and course of study? Do you get any reply from NTU yet?

Hi! Is anyone studying in NTU currently? Does it get cold during lectures?
Depends on which LT you are in.
Sometimes if the air-con isn't working, then you can see everyone fanning themselves. But I would think larger LTs would be colder and smaller LTs might be less cold (especially when the air-con isn't working). Anyway, you don't have to go to lectures if it's recorded which is like 70% of the time (I think higher for NBS and SBS).

Iím more shook over the fact that you said some aircons may not work compared to the ďnot having to go for lecturesĒ......interesting

I was sure shook to on that one day when the aircon didn't work (thank god I decided to be senseless and wear crop top and shorts when I thought I'm going to an air-conditioned lecture)

But some lectures are really really cold (this lecture theatre near EEE) and I always wear sweatpants when I got that lecture.

My RP is 78.75, which is 1.25 short of this yr igp but after the bonus pt from first choice, my RP hit the 10th percentile. Thank you

What is ur gpa? I knew my neighbour didn't have a really high GPA (i think 3.5 or less) but she got accepted into sociology after the interview!

Also, there is this person whom was my coursemate's coursemate back in poly and I remembered my coursemate was saying he got 3.5 something (this person got into sociology) - my coursemate telling me it only become he was shocked that like the person could get in NTU (not being offensive but genuinely shocked because he was saying how before that it's really hard to get in uni with gpa below 3.6 and even 3.6 was hard to get into uni last time)

Currently wait and see.. cos I applied for NUS and Yale NUS too but neither has gotten back. Iíll most likely be accepting LMS though but I just wanna see if I get offered other courses - just so I can weigh my choice carefully :/

Kinda no hope for the other two schools liao I feel haha
