eh. hang on. acceptance is spread over many days, cause people sometimes just apply for fallback plans or open choices. Confirmation is like up to 1june, so alot alot alot alot alot of time

Also, my grades are good, dun really wanna post it, if not i feel like im boasting. But it's good enough for medicine.
My friend's was ABC\A GP:B PW:B

Okay, if u are talking about grades, hope dis eg. helps, my cousin got:
ABCC (cant rmb which was H1, H2 Bio was A). GP: E. PW: B

What were ur grades?

hi thanks bosty!!

oh my grades were bbc/c, I got a D for GP *boohoo*. and I got a B for PW.

u mean as in if people who got the offer from NTU SBS may let go of their choice as they may accept the other offer from NUS/SMU? So in that case, no news is still considered as good news?

anw, lets say if i got an offer from my second choice, (I put biological sciences as my first), does that mean that I am already not under consideration for my first option? and since, is appealing for the first choice (in near future) appropriate?

my friend failed her GP, but she got AAD for H2, is it possible to get into science courses?

oops i think i asked too many questions. ps but I'd be glad if anyone can answer any of them!
TIA!

@lovesdonut: Wah ya alot of qn. but nvm. First i must say im not an undergrad, so my info may have some mistakes.

Yes, u can get all 3 offers from the 3 universities, den u choose. Accept one, reject the rest
Eh, i think if u are offered ur 2nd choice le, means ur first choice can bid farewell lo. Den need to appeal or something lor. My understanding is that receiving ur 2nd choice offer is equavilant to receiving ur 1st choice reject

the 10 percentile of last years SBS intake was BBC\C. assuming GP: C and PW:C (http://www3.ntu.edu.sg/oad2/pdfs/COP.pdf). average la that is. That is ranking points of 72.5. Your Rank points are also 72.5. You are close to the borderline, but u still stand a good chance

For ur friend, She may have to be interviewed because of her GP. or like take some extra english proficiency test, im not too sure bout this though. But by ranking point wise, she is on the fence.

@leahchan: u stand a good chance la just that ur D is physics hor? so might put u in a slight disadvantage, but u should be able to get in la If u cant log in for any of them, means all still processing

@lovesdonut: hahax, that just my style, positive and also to show u guys that there isn't much to emo about haha! But most imptly, even if u dun get the course u desire, take it lightly. I mean, honestly at the age of 19, or 20, or wadeva young age u are, we lack true exposure and experience to really determine our true "Passion" and "interest". So if u dun make it to SBS, im sure u can be equally happy in other courses. The feeling of reject would probably feel awful, but down the road in the future, who knows wad holds

Im not too sure with that joint acceptance thing. But like i could access with my NTU one, but not NUS (yet to receive anything also).

Jiayou for your SMU interview my no. tip is to always keep a smile and treat the whole thing like a conversion, rather than an interview. It might help u. CHEERS!
