Lol me too! Psychology seems like a very popular choice among students who go FASS.

This is what I found from the NUS website

Top ‘A’ Level applicants to FASS will be given the
chance of direct admission to their preferred major.
To be eligible for this special scheme, applicants must
have Grade A for at least three of their ‘A’ Level
subjects at one examination sitting. Eligible candidates
will be invited to indicate their preferred major upon
successful admission into FASS.

But I'm not sure if this will make it easier to get the modules that we want though.

It's just a group interview. Basically only 3 questions: Tell me about yourself. Why SMU? Why Econs? Talk about the global economic crisis. Nothing to worry about I guess. I think once you're shortlisted, you should be offered a place.

Oh i see.. Do they ask e 3 questions 2gether? I wonder how much time 1 person is allowed to speak. What if I speak too much?

Default Question about Joint Acceptance Facility

Hi guys

Just asking, when we log into the facility we can close the window without indicating any option right?

I am offered SMU Social Science (and another option: Reject all offers!) but I do not wish to make a decision now since I am hoping for NUS FASS and NTU WKWSCI to give me a positive reply. So I can just simply login and close the window?

Thanks!

(By the way, for those who wish to login through SMU Application Number, do include the alphabets.)
