Not sure what happened between 1992 and 1995 cohorts.

During my days so many 3.7 and even 3.8 struggled to get in even with appeal.

Oh yea these days no more O levels component right

Hello there, came across this forum and wanna ask what are my chances to getting into SMU this year. I submitted my application during early Jan 2020, not yet received any notification from SMU. Graduated from Temasek Poly in 2019. Applied for SMU Social Sciences. Dont have any CCA but manage to graduate with a Diploma Plus in Psychology Fundamental. My GPA is 3.55. Should I be worried?
Kind of, their 10th percentile igp is 3.66, 3.55 is abit far from that and you don’t have cca too. But no harm trying. Jiayou!

I wonder if given the current health epidemic, in future how are the universities going to conduct interviews? And also wont this affect international students applying to local unis in SG?

Maybe a wee bit more cautious ... but life goes on. Stay cool.

Bear in mind there are no absolute stats to show the spread from last student admitted to 10th percentile

Again, for discretionary / mature admissions, 2 questions need to be answered:

1. Can you survive the programme? How to quantify?

2. Why you (Among the other discretionary admissions applicants)? What's the loss/gain without you in the cohort?

If I am not wrong, there is no more discretionary admission from this year on. Can someone please verify?

IIRC based on the various uni websites the 10th percentile reflected in the IGP does not take in to account the students who got in via DA? Can someone correct me if I am wrong.

No more DA folks.
The Big 3 will no longer offer discretionary admissions from this year 2020.
