I think maybe you could try it out for 1 semester. If your neighbors are really that bad, ie noisy and stubborn, then quit hall.

Otherwise, apply for residences instead of hall. There are generally lesser activities/ interactions in residences. So the noise lvl might be lower.

Yeap! True. From what i heard/research on the web ... residence is less happening and more quiet. So it's alot more conducive for studying. I think they too have study clusters?

Not too sure about halls though.

Hall, i think it really depends on which hall and what kind of neighbours you get. It can be very rowdy especially if you are surrounded with socialites and LOUD people.


Personally, for me i'm applying for PGP as my first choice. I don't really wanna get bogged down with too many activities. I suppose those seniors jolly well how the atmosphere is like in NUS. So yeah. Just spend your time with some decent CCA ... party once in a while ... but study well at the same time.

every AY, you need to apply loh, but they based it on the amount of CCA pts you have or whether you are on the mc of those big societies

Yes. You will get the same room in 2nd sem unless you decide to quit. For the second yr, you would have to re-apply and that would be based on your CCA pts accumulated.

I think your guitar question is quite hilarious. Getting whallop by neighbors for playing the guitar? I have neighbors who not only plays the guitar but also gather together in one of their rooms to practice singing.

I think it's all abt tolerance and knowing when to make noise and when not to make noise.
