thx a lot!
SMU requires interviews apart from academic excellence. so, TER 95 is not the only factor to be considered.

SMU is seeking for a well rounded individual. Good command of english is an added advantage.

SMU are for business and law students. Personally i would prefer NUS double degree in engineering and economics over NTU Actuarial Science. But there are alot to take into factor too. So i guess i will take whatever is offered.

For those who are interested in learning about life in Nanyang Technological University, or NTU in Singapore. There is a website showing photo galleries of events and places in NTU. It gives you a rough idea of facilities and life in NTU.

It is at
www.phototour.sg

Especially for the NTU Open House Event 2009 L.I.F.E @ NTU.
http://www.phototour.sg/Events/NTU_O...BS_lounge.html

Its supposed to be a day where Undergraduates come to NTU to get to know about NTU.
There are exhibitions of student clubs and also booths for various schools.

The following Images are from NTU Open House 2009

Hope this will help those who are choosing which university to enroll in.

I dont know why he says NTU is not a good university. From what I can see in the past 8 months, NTU is actually quite good. Not the top in the world, but can still be considered among the best in Asia(especially Nanyang Business School).

Engineering wise, NTU is not bad, in my opinion. Although I think we learned less compared to local U in the first year, we should be able to catch up. The professors here are ok, but some from China are not so fluent in English. So you may have problem understanding their lecture. They are knowledgeable in science and maths though.

Studying in NTU is also more competitive than local U. Here, you can see a lot of very good students from ASEAN, China and India. You will be forced to work hard if you want to maintain a good grade.

In the end, it is all up to you. If you can get a better offer, by all means go ahead. But NTU is definitely not a bad university and I am looking forward to seeing you guys here.

Woh , kfc where are you going? , which university you plan to jump into???
MIT , Harvard , CALTECH , Georgia Institute of Tech???

Congratz , if you manage to transfer to any of this university!!!


Hmmm , NTU no good??? , well i do agree with you , if you say NTU is no good ;
first , there is no guarantee of a hall stay in NTU , if you dint not join any CCA(co curricular activities) or meet the Cut off Point , this is a drawback of NTU , every year , residents have to compete to stay in a hall!!!

second, NTU has a very high tuition fee , if you cant get a grant from the MOE SG , the tuition fee plus your living allowance can easily cost you about RM 60k per year (that fro Mech Eng , ~SD 24k per year tuition fee)

third , NTU has a crazy life style = if you sleep at 12 am , i believe you are the earliest guy sleeping in NTU , even though you walk to the toilet from your room at 2am , if you see everyone awakes!!! , NTU is packed not only with the syllabus but with a lot of CCA , and social gathering(if you are active person ,if you are introvert , then you will have plenty of time to spend for the 3 months bfr exam)

4th , being the top in NTU is crazy , competing with the best students in ASEAN , most of the students from foreign countries are either the top in their countries , or they are Olympiad medalist!!!

5th , to obtain CPGA 5.0 in NTU , you will have to be the best of the best not only in academic but in everything ,which means you are perfect!!! , every year <1% got CPGA 5.0!!!

hahaha , NTU is quite bad right???
