accountancy usually has a higher cut off.

i would say you have a higher chance for NTU/SMU; you may still get NUS though you will get at least one of them

Hello,

I'll be honest - those are borderline grades for NUS BIZ, and fall short of NUS Accountancy.

No issues with NTU & SMU though.

Will you be matriculating this year ? And is your 6th semester likely to pull your overall GPA up ?

Hi! Yes, I will be applying this year. I could either get an A or a B+ for my internship (credit units equivalent to 5-6 normal modules). So if I can get an A my GPA will jump to 3.86.

Make sure you get that A!

At 3.86 you'll have a good shot, although it won't be taken into account unless you appeal.

Edit : Err.. I hope you mean "applied" / "enrolling", instead of "applying".

Default Update - acceptance without interview

I received a letter of acceptance into NTU accountancy. It is without interview also.
