Default Rate my chances to enter ntu.

Hello,
i just got back my results and it was quite bad.

H2 Physics, Chemistry , Maths - all C
H1 Econs and GP - all C.

Do you think i stand a chance in NTU Mechanical Engineering?

You have a chance. I believe physics in NTU is CCC/C. Mech eng should be BCC/C. You are not too far off but youre still not there. No harm trying though.

You should have a shot for Mechanical Engineering. If you'd like to choose a safer option, you can consider putting common engineering as well. It has lower IGP requirements and will also give you some additional time to decide if you really want to be a mechanical engineer or switch to EEE, Civil or Env.

Yeah, common engineering would be able to open up some doors for you.

Sorry but what do you mean that i will have additional time to switch to mech engineer if i enter common engineering? Are we allowed to switch courses during uni?

For the first semester, all engineering students in EEE, Civil, Env and MAE take the same modules. For those in common engineering, you decide which path you want to take after your first semester.

So you'll have you entire first semester to decide which course you want to carry on with for the rest of your degree. You can choose to be streamed into EEE, Civil, Env or MAE after your first semester.

hope this helps. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. (: I'm more then happy to help.

Will there be a test at the end of the first semester?
And if so, will they use the test results to see which type of engineering am i eligible for?

Yes, kind of. They will see the results of certain modules.

At the end of your first semester, they'll ask you to rank your choices. They will then arrange all the students according to their GPAs and try to allocate them their choices based on the space availability of each.
