NUS Acceptance

Congratulations on your recent acceptance to NUS’ Faculty of Science.

I am not accepting it. Yes, it’s NUS, but I am better off in an Arts field than accepting my Faculty of Science offer and have a 50-50 chance of appealing to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. I’d rather have a safety net being NTU Sociology than being in NUS FoS.

Don’t want to suffer my four years, only to realise that I have no chance of graduating with an honours degree. With NTU, I have a guaranteed chance of going for an honours degree.

The appeal round for University Admissions will be starting on the 22nd of May. I’m nervous to start my appeal essay, but I’m going to properly wing it and really hope for the best.

The choice is clear.

  1. Hi, im planning to apply to SUTD for 2016 intake. Although i passed my IB in 2013 with a very surprising grade (29 points only D:, failed my EE and TOK but got a 6 at physics n 5 in maths ). i’ve went to a different university since then and now im interested in starting again from freshmen year in SUTD. I want to get into the architecture faculty and thats really all that i want. Im not interested in anything but architecture. What do you think are my chances here? be real with me haha. Right now my GPA from my current university is 3.7 out of 4. Do you think they will look at my IB score or just my new GPA? Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Hello Patricia! I’m sorry for not getting back to you earlier. As you have embarked on a degree course, the only way to get into SUTD is by transferring. You will not be considered in the same way high school graduates are. I think you’re able to transfer credits upon completing one/two semesters.

      Thus, when applying for transfer, your latest grades (in this case, your CGPA/GPA of 3.7 out of 4) will be considered. To be honest, I am not sure whether 3.7 out of 4 is considered a good grade if you’re talking about transfer applicants. Thruout my school years, we don’t use GPA as I am not under an IB programme. Plus, I don’t know the rate of admittance for transfer students.

      What I can assure you is that SUTD does NOT solely depend on your grades. They look more towards your extra-curriculars, and it would be better if your activities have relevance towards the architectural fields. This could score you very high on the marks when an interview is scheduled. SUTD students are very diverse in nature and excel in many areas other than academics. I’m trying to be real with you – academic results aren’t everything if you’re talking about SUTD.

      All the best, Patricia!
