Default Appeal!

Hi,
I am offered my third choice from NUS, (1st choice Mechanical, 2nd MSE, 3rd Electrical). I am having a GPA 3.93 from Temasek Poly in Mechatronics. Any hope I can get back my 1st preference course through appealing??? Please... Thanks...

Thanks for your reply... But things are too complicated... I want to study with my friend who already got admission for ME from NUS... He will be accepting the course only if there is a higher probability for my appeal... If you can commend on the chances of successful appeal, it would be appreciated...

May I know what are the odds of NUS approving appeals for admission? =) Does appealing really work?

It is recommended that you accept an offer and appeal at the same time. This is to ensure that you have a place in the local unis in the event of an unsuccessful appeal. It is certainly unwise if you give up an offer in the hope that your appeal will be successful.

Generally, appeal is for the following situations:
1) those who are not offered any place in the 3 local unis;
2) offered a place in uni A but wish to appeal for a place in uni B; and,
3) offered a place in uni A but wish to appeal for another course in the same uni

(From NUS) Please note that appeals to Architecture, Dentistry, Industrial Design, all Law-related courses, Medicine, Nursing and some of the double / concurrent degree programmes that require a selection interview, will not be considered, unless you have taken the required aptitude tests and interviews conducted earlier.

That is so far I can think of right now. Perhaps if you have any other situation, feel free to ask about it.

You can appeal for any course ranked in your choices, be it higher or lower in the order of preference than what you are offered. However, it is really depending on the demand (popularity of course) and supply (places available).

I will not comment on whether should you appeal for a course that is higher or lower in the order of preference. It is really depending on how you position your choice. However, if you really wish to seek an opinion, I will not mind giving my two cents worth but please bear in mind that there is no guarantee in whether your appeal will be successful.

I will also not comment on whether you can appeal for a course that is not among your choices, because I really have no idea on this. Perhaps you wish to e-mail NUS/NTU/SMU and ask them about it.

For NSFs (regardless whether have they reserved a place or otherwise), students who retake A level, and those intend to apply again next year with this year's results, please note that you will be competing with the graduating batch of JC and polytechnic students next year. You will notbe competing with your own cohort.

This paragraph is dedicated to the NSFs. If you have reserved a place in one of the local unis, you may apply again if you wish to switch to another course/uni. If your application is successful, you have the choice to retain your reserved offer or accept your new offer.

Please correct me if I have made any mistake. In any case, I wish you luck in receiving an offer that you desire soon!
Hi, Jus to enquire the process for appeal, Are we oly given 1 choice for 1 sch or ixit lik uni application whr we are given a few choices?

Need ur advice on this, I'm posted to Ntu Chem and Biological Chem, my 4th choice and i tot since i'm more of a person ppl and not much of a sci person, i would prefer biz/ acc more.. u tink i should appeal for ntu acc (my 1st choice) or Ntu bix (my 2nd choice), given that i wasnt even granted acc interview.(failed my biz interview)

If all else fail and i get into sci course, do u tink Ntu Chem or Nus Sci is beta? I heard its easier to get 1st class/ 2nd upper for ntu chem dan nus sci. but i oso heard employer values nus sci stud more cos dey reli noe more.. which is true?

And If i take sci, does tt reduce my chance or make mi less wanted by banks/ biz corporations? Given that having a degree is jus an entry into the working world.
