hey i know why i got it already! It's coz i put double deg as one of my options, which is supposedly independent of my single degree choices.

hey riped pumpkin no worries, got to hang on for about 1.5 weeks more thereabouts cause of the concurrent and ddp applications are handled separately. see above about me getting more information and contact details for you guys to directly clarify about these matters.

thirtyone, if ya applying for med, im sure your grades will get you somewhere in nus, only a matter of place.

like i mentioned, will find an email for you guys to get an invite for bizconnect if you are really keen on finding out more about bschool.

Hey. I asked the Dean of NUS Biz after my ddp interview about this qns and she said that only if your first choice single degree is Medicine, Law or Dentistry, and you have passed both the single and double degree selections, you will be offered Medicine/Law/Dentistry because these 3 courses have higher cut off points than ddp. NUS will state that you have also been selected for ddp, and if you decide to pursue the ddp instead of the single one, you have to go through some process.

However, if you chose something else (e.g. Engineering or FASS) as your first choice single degree, NUS will offer you the double degree and NOT the single degree.

So NUS will only give you one place.

Whilst in the process of making a decision, I realised that the bidding system in NUS biz school seems somewhat a disadvantage. From what I've read, we are all given a certain number of bid points for our entire undergraduate course, which we will then use to bid for the modules of our choice. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Doesn't this put us at a disadvantage rather than if we were give a choice of a fixed set of modules? The bidding system means that not everyone will get the modules of their choice, which also means we might not be headed in the 'path' of choice within the business course.
