I guess you can do a relevant bridging module if you dont have H2 Maths. Saw that from NUS FOS Website.

I doubt there will be a high rejection rate. The fact that they shortlisted you out of so many potential candidates shows that they see something in you that others may not have, hence there should be a good chance of being accepted for the course. Unless, of course, you did extremely bad for your interview.

From what I have read online, people have described the interview to be like a "chit-chat session", where they ask generic questions like which major you are choosing, reasons for you choice etc. I'm not really sure about this since I haven't gone for the interview yet.

Yup, saw that on the website too, but I tend to get overly paranoid haha. Thanks for pointing that out.

Hey all, all the best for your interview if you have one

Anyone went for a DA interview already? Would you care to share what to expect about it?

Hi monster, replied to you in the FOS thread. To summarise, its not scary and questions are usually to find out how interested you are in the course.

Hi waffles, yes, I think it is quite similiar to what you have said. Its nothing scary really, and the professors are nice. But this may not apply to every interview? I'm not sure since I am basing my answer from my own experience. So just come prepared but don't be nervous!

Haha! I haven't went for the interview yet. Mine's on Thursday. Oh goodness, after reading about your experience on the other thread, I feel somewhat comforted. But I'm still feeling nervous, nonetheless!
