Do you all think it’s possible for NUS to accept poly students who never meet their math requirements for School of Computing courses?

I have anecdotal evidence of NUS accepting students who don't have maths but that is unverifiable. For the most part I don't think so.

I went to the NUS Open Day 2019 and asked an NUS professor regarding NUS Information Systems course. I asked about the O lvl maths requirements for Information Systems, and he told me the O lvl maths requirements is more important for Non-Computing diploma. For those of you coming from Computing diploma, the O lvl maths requirements will not be so important. The reason is that they want to make sure those Non-Computing diploma students can cope with Information Systems.

That's what I have gotten from an NUS professor during NUS Open Day 2019 Information Systems talk.

Can someone verify this? Thanks!

I'm in NYP and they don't offer prizes for distinctions at all. So to answer your question, no, I didn't.

However, for project modules, if my project is deemed good enough for a distinction, I'll have to attend a "Outstanding Project Presentation" which is also known as "Distinction Presentation" and present to a panel of judges which consists of the Course Manager, Course Coordinator, Moderator and tutors from all classes. They'll then decide if I'm worthy of a Distinction for the project module.

I was wondering why do people of high authority (Course Manager and etc) bother to arrange and attend the "Distinction Presentation" amidst their busy schedule if Distinctions don't matter to uni at all... or why would all polys even bother to issue distinctions in the first place if they don't help at all. Food for thought...

I'm sorry. I am just really puzzled. Thanks a lot for replying.
I am from NYP too. I went through that whole process and it was worth it. Cause once I was shortlisted for the distinction presentation and managed to get distinction. Subsequently, I got multiple awards because of it, which includes MOE award.

Yup. It's kinda shiok when you get a distinction for modules especially those project modules. It's also a good experience to pitch your project to a panel of judges. Are you from NYP School Of IT also?

Good morning to all. Anyone received offers from NTU for Mech Engineering course yet? I applied using my 5 sems cGPA of 3.68 and received my final cGPA of 3.65, am part of the World Skills Competition team, was in the Director's Honour Roll for 2017/2018 and received MOE academic excellence awards for 2 years running. Do all these accolades help in securing a place in NTU? The 10th percentile for Mech Engineering is 3.61. The wait is killing me!

I think being a part of Worldskills competition team is a good advantage for admission. Did you win anything from Worldskills? Like medals or medallion of excellence?

No I didn't win any medals but I received a Certificate of Participation. The competition was tough and me being part of it was already 'something' for me. Really great exposure and personal achievement for me.

Wondering what's taking NTU so long to send out the offers. Most of my friends received theirs from NUS already. Really hope its not due to huge numbers of applicants with 90th percentile GPA scores killing hopes for those in the 10th percentile range.

I see. At least you took part the finals in the WorldSkills Singapore. That's very impressive. Because not everyone can get a chance to take part in the finals for WorldSkills.

I did not apply to NTU since they don't have the course I want.

I did apply for NUS Information Systems but until now still no news...
