From what i know, the School of Art, Design and Media would require to see your portfolio and your portfolio will help you gain admission if it is very good.

As for grades, as long as you fulfil the average standard like BBC something like that, with a steller portfolio, you might gain acceptance!

All the best.

Your A in Art will definitely help when they consider you.

hey there.

the A for art would be a strong cause but im afraid the failure in GP might pose some problems. you may have to take QET if you are in on probation to see if you can pass your english. yupp! hope to see you at our open house this sat though! come down to clear your queries yea?

Ning, would like to ask some questions regarding assignments portion. The instructions say for all still art (graphics design etc.) the format must be digital. So does that mean the same for assignments? I've done them on A4 sized papers already, so do I just leave them as they are or scan them into the computer. Similarly, is it necessary to include my hard-copy portfolio pieces if I've already scanned them?

hmmmm i would thinking scanning in is sufficient for all, really. it is not advisable to send your original copies of works in case they get damaged along the way or smth so yup, take photos/scan them in, and compile into a disc. that should do. if you have any queries, please come down to open house this sat! im posting up the details in a new thread.

Apologies for hijacking this thread, but since the title of this thread is the name of the school I reckon I might as well post here instead of starting another one.

Well, I am a Singapore Polytechnic second year student moving to third year soon. I am taking two diplomas concurrently - Diploma in Digital Media (main) and Specialist Diploma in E-Commerce Technology.

Basically, I do graphic design and web programming (XHTML/CSS/JavaScript/Actionscript/C#/PHP and etc).

My current cumulative GPA is 3.7, and I intend to take ADM's BFA Interactive Media. Although I have a year more to go, I do not intend to slack and I think my GPA might even be a little higher when I graduate.

My portfolio is ... okay, I guess. I have things to show, that is for sure.

So here comes the main point of the post -

What are my chances of getting into ADM's BFA Interactive Media? Does being on Director's Roll help? How about records of scholarship awards? I think my 'O' Levels results can help since I got an acceptable score (L1R5 13, L1R4 10).

Thank you for your help!

EDIT :
I realized that there is another section dedicated to rating one's chances of admission to schools. I am sorry for not noticing that earlier, but I hope my post can stay here.

hello there!

well i think you are pretty much set! yes both academic and portfolio would have equal weight in consideration, so if your GPA's amongst the top 10-15% of your cohort, what remains is to brush up on the portfolio!

also, check out the requirements stated on our sch's website alright? fulfill the requirements for the entrance prep and send it in! just work hard and smart meanwhile. all the best yea! (also, this year's open house is over, but if you want to you can take a look at next year's if you havent done so.) poly app ends in feb though i think so plan ahead!

Thank you for your reply!

Yes, I noticed that I missed the open house this year. I will definitely be there next year though.

I checked the ADM website and took note of the entrance requirements. I also visited the ADM forums. I am such a paranoid, but you are right - plan ahead!

Thank you again!
