Haha I accepted NUS FASS(my first choice) already. NTU offered me economics(my first choice) but i'm appealing to biz (trying my luck since i heard ppl with bbb/a getting in).

It will be a real dilemma if miracles happen and NTU biz offers me a place there. *Omg stop dreaming!* Haha

It is unfair because there are people who got 75 rp and got in.

I have 75 rank points but got rejected for FASS. You have to take with a pinch of salt what people tell you about their UAS. Some may have calculated wrongly, etc etc.

It is unfair IF someone with a lower rank point gets in (and they are both judged ONLY BY THEIR GRADES).

Yeah guys I'm certain I made sure my facts were true before I went here. My best friends classmate is the one who got 75.5 rp acc/b with a d in gp and still got in. The rest who got 75 and managed to get in are from forums so their authenticity i can't be too sure though the former example is gaurenteed. That's pretty much why I'm going on about my diatribe because I feel cheated sigh

The person who got lower rp than me and got in is from sci his combi was h2 math chem geog and h1 econs. There isn't a preference for sci kids over arts kids for fass right ? Maybe it is though ? Cause this person also got a d for gp
