1. Possible jobs for an Econs graduate: business. (Can't really help you further than this.)
2. Yes, you don't need to declare your major until after the first year. You just apply to FASS.
3. You can calculate your university admission score here (http://forum.brightsparks.com.sg/showthread.php?p=26632). You only need to include your Higher Mother Tongue if it increases your score; if not, you don't need to.

Doh. Isn't this true for all courses?
What kind of a job is "business"?

thanks for the swift reply!
so just to clarify point 2, i checked out NTU's online application form and under its 'choice of programme' section, we are expected to choose from its drop down menu. Is it safe to assume that choosing 'humanities' means i m applying to its FASS and not any specific course as yet??
since they put subjects like economics, pyschology etc below it...
