View Full Version : When to apply for NUS?

I read up online that the NUS application is available until sometime during February. Does one apply just right after they have received their results? I will be getting my IB results early January next year, and will be entering army shortly after that. So is it true that we should apply and first reserve a placing into the uni first, even when there is a 2 year NS gap? For my case, my first choice should be NUS. Thanks a lot for helping me clear my doubts!

You will be allowed to apply once you receive your results. There is a period of time (up to a month i believe) for you to send in your applications to the 3 universities. Yes you should apply once you get your results, even though you have NS to serve because the university (of your choice) will reserve your place for you until you finish NS. Plus if you apply in subsequent years, you will have to pay higher school fees.
