I applied for SMU scholarship and business.

Got offer business but they never mention anything about scholarship. However, I hear that other got both at one go.

Does that mean that i don't stand a chance?

I'm not sure but I'm trying to be optimistic.

"You would be considered a Local Applicant if you are a:

Student who has attended a junior college, polytechnic or selected high schools in Singapore and attained any of the following qualifications:
Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'A' Level
Diploma (from local Polytechnics)
NUS High School Diploma
International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma"

^according to nus, we are local applicants. So even if the 16-18% thing is true, I believe we have a slight advantage compared to international students with international qualifications.

A person can be a 'Local Applicant' and also an international student. International students are define by their nationality, not by their qualifications. There's no question of whether the cap is 18% or not. It is. You can read MInistry of Education's parliamentary replies. Unless you think they're lying.

That's said, I do believe that foreigners who have studied in the Singapore system have an advantage over those who did not. But such advantage seems marginal.

Hi all ,

I am also waiting for my NTU offer for quite long already since I applied during the early admission process. I am not sure if it's because I am a foreigner that I have to wait until this long since most of my SC/PR friends have already received their offers. Since I applied to SUTD as well , I have currently accepted the SUTD offer and am currently studying in SUTD while waiting for the NTU offer since studying in NTU has more benefits for moi.

Poly GPA : 3.968 after 3 years with Merit
O'level : 20 points raw (CCA A2)
Applied for : NTU EEE as first choice

u have accepted SUTD!!! so I doubt u will receive another offer. the system is shared by all uni. so they know when u have accepted 1.

Well actually , NTU was the one that asked me to accept the SUTD offer first and then keep on waiting for their outcome . They say that me accepting their offer won't affect the outcome status from NTU in any way .
