Default NUS/NTU Admission Appeal

Got rejected by NUS FOS and wishing to appeal, could anyone rate my chances please?

H2 Bio- A
H2 Chem- A
H2 Math- A
H2 Econ- B
H1 GP- C
H1 PW- B

I did write a personal statement under DA Scheme, but did not talk about my CCA or external activities at all, so not sure if that's the main reason my admission into NUS was rejected..?

Also, what exactly should you write in a 1000 characters appeal? Again talk about my interest in that degree (Chemistry), or focus more on the non-academic achievements? And should you bother to waste word count asking for an interview?

Appreciate any pieces of advice, thank you!!

Tbh, you met the 10th percentile of the cut-off of NUS's IGP.. I'm surprised you got rejected because your results easily surpasses the 10th percentile of ABB/C that science has :O!
Try appealing! Don't waste your word count asking for an interview, spend it on your your interest/abilities etc..
