From my observations, it seems to me there are three scenarios in which you are called up for an interview:

1) Borderline grades (AAB/B and below).
2) Low GP or PW grade (Okay, the use of the word 'low' here might be derogatory, it's not actually low per se, but relative to the other successful applicants)
3) C5 and below for 'O' Level English.

There are already people this year who got accepted without the interview straight.

Do anyone have any idea on how NTU shortlist people for interviews, or for that matter, admission without the time-consuming interviews?
Well yeah. The successful applicants admitted into the DDP (Acct& Biz) programme did not fall under the three criteria I noticed. (refer to previous post)
