i guess you just had your interview :)
NTU has this new early admission prog for poly grads, unlike previous yrs.
so the results might be faster (i'm unsure though)
you can give the scholarship dept a call to confirm.

Hi, thanks for the replied actually i applied the scholarship just never shortlisted, but my friend went for the interview already. I am not sure is it the only one interview because I heard my friend said that, that day only 5-6 people went for the interview.

usually interviews don't last for one day only; at least couple of days, sometimes weeks. anyway, FYI there's a Nanyang Scholarship thread in the NTU sub-forum.

So troublesome. We have to disturb our teachers to write referee reports for both NUS and NTU scholarships. I don't mind doing things myself. I hate disturbing my teachers........

If they write the letter for you, and you get the scholarship, I am sure you will always be indebted to your teachers, and they will be so very proud of you. Win win.

Anyone can completed the applicant's bit of this scholarship? Can share a little about the teacher's reference bit? I'm trying to figue out to bugg my academic teacher, or my teacher mentor.

For example, with the NUS scholarship, the teacher reference questions are very academic. Will not be a wise choice to ask you cca teachers to fill up that one for you

i believe during this period, the interviews are for poly grads/students only.

Usually scholarship providers do not send you notification of rejection. Not hearing anything is simply understood as not getting it.

Hi you mean the accomodation allowance is for all the NTU Scholarship? or only Nanyang Scholarship how about Asean and College? Because I know Nanyang Scholarship got accomodation allowance but college and Asean dont have

only Nanyang Scholarship. because the nanyang scholar is required to stay in hall for at least a year (or in 1st year), so the scholarship will cover the cost of accommodation to fulfill this requirement.

prior to this, the scholar will have to fork out their own $$ to pay for the hostel fees

i shldn't say it's easy, but it's quite direct. no tricky qns asked. only one round of interview.

panel of 3. dean of admission, one prof from within the chosen faculty, and another prof from another faculty.

qns which were asked were the usual ones ie. your choice of program, CCA, leadership (the dean said "we are also looking for candidates with exceptional leadership qualities" :)) etc. except for the last qn:

why you choose to study in this field/your area of interest/your intended specialisation - asked by the faculty prof

i think the last qn is the hardest for me. you really got to know what you are talking about. cos afterall, you are up against someone who is really knows much more than you do :D

Holy crap! almost 4.0! were you from NP? I am a year 2 with cumulative gpa of 3.86, still got 4 more semester to go, do you think that i stand a chance to get the scholarship?:( I am actively engage in NYAA-Chapter as a committee member and canoeing club member and NCC CLT.

nope. i was from a rival poly ;)

almost 4.0 gpa is not a big deal. there was a senior who scored ALL DISTINCTIONS, which also meant perfect 4.0. NOW that's Holy Crap..
(btw, i think he got into Harvard :eek:)

keep ur gpa (and Distinctions) up, keep a good cca record, coupled with some leadership experience, and you'll do just fine. not only for this scholarship, but others too..

AFAIK there's no such scholarship for my sch. but those with potential (good o'lvl and sec sch cca record) were identified early even before admission (before starting year 1) and selected for a scholars programme. and the programme comes with perks such as sch fees fully paid for, awards at end of course, priority for overseas CIP etc etc. i guess all these things effectively equate to a scholarship :D

we can communicate more thru PM, if you want. cos i think we're going off-topic here :o
