Hi, please estimate my chances for NUS Computer Science. I am a foreigner student with local O level and poly cert (graduating this year).

Poly from an IT related course
CGPA 3.98 expected to go up to 3.99
CCA highest grade
Represented school in a challenge and won award(nothing big I guess since it's not national)
Intern 6 months in a big related MNC in local HQ (does it matter?)

I understand since I do not have A Maths O level it'll be considered DA. What are the chances I get called up for interview (DA) for NUS CS?


Also, what are the chances of me getting a scholarship in NTU Computer Science course? I have received my offer for CS through NTU EASE, but nothing on scholarship interview yet.

Are there any interviews for people looking for readmissions? I withdrew from NTU 2 years ago and was thinking of applying and start again from fresh.

I was from poly and applied and accepted NTU's comp engineering programme in 2019 and will be studying in 2021 as im serving NS and now i would like to apply for their comp science programme instead this year.

Question:
1) Do i still apply normally via "Diploma awarded by a polytechnic in Singapore"?

2) And under the "choices of programme" page, i just need to fill in my first choice only which is comp science?

3) In the event that im rejected from comp science AGAIN as my appeal didnt work last year, will i still have my reserved comp engineering seat in 2021?

Don't bother, just proceed with your programme. Both CE and CS will be taking the same modules in their first year. Once you've completed your first year, you can swap to CS path. It's seldom that I see people changing from CS to CE, but it's really common to see people to change from CE to CS on their 2nd year onwards.

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
