Hi everyone
I'm interested in the civil engg course at NUS.. CIE(Cambridge) A Level student now. results at school are not bad, got straight A's for my AS and is predicted to obtain straight A's for A level.
Went to the NUS website & realised that SATs are required for me.. just took the subject test in dec. 780 in maths II but didnt do well in physics and world history.. gotten 1920 in total.

what are the chances of me getting into nus? :S
ur help is much appreciated.

It's difficult to estimate your chances (with you being an international student) because your results are pegged against other international applicants (rather than singapore's local pool talent). Your results do look impressive though. You just have to live up to expectations and perform well in your A's to stand a solid chance.

Did you take SAT I?

I'm going to take SAT I in Jan next year. My A lvl results are released after the application deadline, therefore according to the nus website.. decisions are more dependent upon my SAT I & II results.. that makes abit worried 'cause my SAT II looks bad apar from maths II. :S
