The following post by an anonymous writer is republished from the Facebook page ‘NUS Whispers‘.
I’m currently a poly grad who graduated with a 3.93 GPA, bronze medalist in Business.
Applied to NUS, NTU, SMU, SIT and UniSim. However, was only accepted by SIT. I do not intend to accept my place in SIT as I am aiming for the top 3 Us. I also do not intend to start work.
Am terribly distraught and wondered what went wrong as I’m sure I’ve met all prerequisites and have a fairly impressive portfolio with better than decent O level grades.
There is also a handful of my poly friends in the same boat as me and we thought that this may be because the local universities may give preference to A Level holders.
Hence, I want to know if this might be true. And if it is, how should I go about taking the A Level preferably in 2017 or 2018. There’s a handful of my poly seniors who’ve done this and have made it into NUS. Sadly, they’re uncontactable now.
Any advice where to take cheap/heavily subsidised night classes conducted by MOE or government affiliated centres? I understand MOE conducts night class for O level repeat students and was wondering if they do the same for A Levels.
Do advice. Thank you!!
