Default Please give me some advise

Hi everyone.
I am a JC1 student. I want to apply for dentistry course in NUS. May I know what should I do to prepare for the application in these two years in Jc?

Should I go for any hospital attachment?

Should I go for CIP? Which kind of CIP is recommended for me?

Is leadership in coca very important ?

Thanks

Yes but optional,you should go for hospital attachment if you can. If you can't,then no problems.

Yes,I am not so sure about dentistry. For medicine,hospital-related CIP is the best. However,you can also do community-based ones,since it helps you build up your leadership and character.

Depends~ If you want to take up a leadership role for dentistry,it's not worth it. You need to do that willingly. Can't imagine those student councillors in my school,trying to get a good portfolio,just to enter medicine/dentistry. You can try to take up leadership roles,but don't try too hard.

Further advice:1.Grades matter. (AAA/A ABB)>87.5 UAS to be considered for interviews

2.Interviews are the most important.(make or break moment) Straight As students have been denied a place,because of interviews.
