Default Did Worse for Retake

Hi, I did worse for my retake.

2014: GP A, H2 Econs B, H2 Physics D, H2 Maths E, H2 Chem E, PW A
2015: GP B, H2 Econs D, H2 Physics D, H2 Maths E, H2 Chem E

Which set of grades will the universities look at? The latest one?

What courses can I get into for my grades? (Not very interested in the Sciences though)

You did badly the first round, decided to retake, but still unnecessarily did 4H2 when you could have done 3H2 1H1? Or is that a typo?

The universities will look at the set of grades that you submit. Usually they will just take the best sitting, which is the 2014 sitting.

I think your RP for the 2014 sitting should be borderline for some NTU engineering courses.You should have a chance at EEE or ME at NTU. What non-science course are you looking at? Seems that you might have a chance for NTU English, Chinese or ADM.

Thanks for the response!

Nope, no typo... I did 4H2s again because Econs is usually not a problem for me. Clearly, my assumption was wrong. Lesson learnt Didn't help that I fell ill for a few papers because of the haze either...

I am considering English, Chinese and ADM. Engineering wouldn't be my preferred choice; but no helping it, I guess. Any tips for acing ADM's portfolio and English's selection tests?

not v sure abt the english tests but you shld have some of your design/art works done by you and used for some exhibition etc. to show them that even without at design diploma you'll b able to manage in adm at a university level, i know someone who managed to get in with a good portfolio although he didnt have spectacular grades so you shld be fine w a good portfolio!
