Default To accept NUS Science or NTU Math Sci?

Hi all, I was offered a place each in NUS Science and NTU Math Sci. I'm interested in studying Applied Math/Statistics and would like to know whether I should choose NTU or NUS.

I'd appreciate whatever help I can get. Thanks in advance!

Hmm... Here's a suggestion, take up NUS science and apply for math as your minor? I'm not too sure if that's feasible, but it sounds pretty good to me! (: all the best!

I intend to major in it! After thinking a bit, I think NUS is better in many aspects! It's also much more convenient to travel to and fro haha. Thanks for your opinion!

HELLO!! You are my fellow course-mate!! Hahaha it's seriously hard to find anyone talking about math or stats under the NUS Science forum :/ Anyway I applied NUS Science and NTU Math Sci also! I'm like you, choosing between the 2! But I think I'm more for NUS Science and then I am intending to major either Mathematics or Statistics (more towards stats).

So, hi there!

yeah hard choice right? I was given 2 options: NUS Science or NTU Mathematical Sciences with finance minor. I kinda like both equally! But now I'm more to the NUS side though..

I really have NO IDEA whether to major in Applied Math or Statistics in NUS! Sigh. Both sound VERY SIMILAR to me. I dunno what to do. :/

Wohooo, finally found ppl talking about math and stats. I'm more interested in stats though. Is it true that for stats major in NUS, you study maths for first two years before majoring?

Heh hello everybody I feel happy that more nus science/ntu math sci offered people are posting!!! It's great to see your prospective course mates talk

Actually i don't quite know the difference between applied math and stats! Can someone enlighten me!

Also ah, really need to study math for first 2 years ah if go for stats? I wanna study stats also! And I thought I only read the study math part in NTU brochure! The NUS one doesnt seem to state anything ... but first year all general modules also right! That means we have to take general modules under NUS Science?
