Also, can any kind seniors advise on the textbooks used for each modules? If you're selling any textbooks or have any notes which are useful to year 1 students for MAEC please let me know!

Thanks in advance

Hi, for MAEC, don't worry too much if you have H2 Math background. It will be sufficient for the first year. If you want to prepare, perhaps brush up on your calculus (differentiation and integration), it will help in your economics mods.

HE1001 and HE1002 are very very similar in content to the A level H2 economics syllabus, if you are from poly/did not take econs in A level perhaps you can borrow notes from your friends who did, it will help!

On a sidenote, we have a NTU Economics FOC this coming 29/7 to 1/8! Since you are from MAEC, do join us! You will meet many other MAEC/Econs students as well as some from other courses who will be of great help to you in your first year! You can check us out at NTU Economics Foc
or http://ntuefoc.wix.com/ntuefoc
Good luck!

Thanks for the recommendations. It'll certainly help me a lot

Default year 1 sem 1 modules

Hi seniors from MAEC. Really need some help here. I'm allocated 21AUs to clear including the follow mods: HE1001,HE1002,MH1100,MH1200,MH1300,MH1401,ML0001(o nline mod). Some seniors I know told me that 21 AUs is too much for 1 sem. I would like to check which mod should i drop during the add/drop period.. All the mod/star/indexes stuff are really complicated. Please help me thanks

Default Exam papers and solutions

Hi MAEC seniors,

Just wna check, how do you guys study for test/exam when there are limited notes and materials for us to do so? Im actually in my year 1 sem 1 and im already struggling. For econs i feel that the only way i can study is to repeatedly refer to lecture notes and tutorials. I cant access myeconlab and there are no solutions for the exam papers in the library collections. For math its the same thing. I need some help here.. Would appreciate it. Thanks!

I'm not from MAEC, but i took econs as a business student.
Lecture notes and tutorials are more than enough. I didnt login to myeconlab at all and manage to get A. Anyway, for all modules in NTU, going through lecture notes and tutorials suffices, in my experience. Also, no solutions are given for exam papers for any modules in NTU! because questions may be recycled. If you are lucky, then the prof will go through the answers with you, be prepared to scribble down as much as you can then.

Can seniors in NTU MAEC tell me the Cut-Off Point (GPA 10th percentile) for NTU MAEC? The IGP stated that the sample size is too small and does not show it...

My GPA is 3.67 and i screwed up my o-level and L1R5 is 15

Also, do they take o-level english into consideration? Because i screwed up my english and got C6

Do I stand a chance?
