Hi all,

I am recent graduate from Nus applied mathematics.

To answer some of your questions, applied maths and pure maths are ALMOST similar, maybe just differ in one or two modules but if u wanna be a teacher, a pure maths major will command a higher pay than a applied maths teacher

Module wise,There is no restriction for level 1000 for year ones and level 2000 for year 2, it all depends on prerequisites, so you have to check cors and plan your uni education properly

Btw Nus maths face very steep bell curve in school ,because there are proportionately higher number of PRC students being a maths major

If I'm not wrong Ntu split 2 bell shapes between Singaporeans and foreigners, so generally Ntu maths student can score better than a Nus maths student. Like they can easily score a second lower honors and Nus will be forced to graduate with a pass/merit degree.

My only regret is choosing applied maths as my major as I faced many difficulties when finding a job. VERY few job requirements will state they require maths major, even a bank job. I took 2 months securing a job whereasy biz major friends could easily land a job within month. Oh btw, most of my maths major friends are doing things NOT related to maths, including me.

If I can ever choose again, I would nv choose my major to be maths, or at least not in Nus (kind of regret rejecting Ntu few years back lol)

Ps: I am speaking from a very-average-maths-major student point of view

Ps: if my answer is incoherent pls pardon me as I am typing this at work
