Yup, i have heard that many chinese from China who got medals in maths Olympiad getting in NUS. It sounds like me getting in NUS is so impossible. I took A level, got 4 A* but did not get any medal from Olympiad and things like that. Do i stand any chance of getting in?? I just got an offer letter from Melaka Manipal campus.......am hesitating whether or not to defer the intake. It is a MARCH intake!!!
Medicine is the only profession you would consider ? How about joining NUS for Life Science then go to Duke-NUS for the postgraduate medicine program ?

Recommers should really consider Life Science in NUS. It's probably the best university in Asia to study biomedical science. We have equipments that you will probably faint when you know the price. We have professors who have studied under Nobel laureates .. (maybe one day we can have our own Nobel laureate too)

best of all... Life science is sickly competitive. You have no choice but to fight till the end... and at the end, you realized that you are already an elite. An elite in the society of biomedical science. This is how NUS changes her students, at least this is how I see it.

the written test and interview will only be offered to those who are shortlisted. the written test is basically an essay requiring you to give your opinion on just about any topic related to medicine(research, health system,hospital policies etc). for the interviews, it really just goes along how you and the interviewers interact. i've heard of interviewers asking applicants(local and intl alike) describe their country's health system, who's their prime minister/health minister etc. it doesn't mean just because you're a msian you shouldn't bother to read up on singapore's health system(things like medisave,medishield,medifund etc).

that is not true. numbers may be few but there are international students in nus medicine. besides that, they're increasing intake for med students.

Do we need to hand in our school leaving cert and testimonial in fact it's not stated in the application checklist?
Will it be better to give extra or strictly only those required?
Any seniors can give suggestion on this matter?

Give only what they request. The translated copies must be accompanied by the photocopied version of the original certs.

Another great reason to study in NUS : NUS soared from 34th to 27th in international universities rankings in TIMES.

hi , i m currently applying. based on the application ,

do we have to write the 'place ' besides the number at the 'POSTAL / ZIP' at contact information segment?

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENT OF PROVINCE AND STATE?

could I fill in SMK. rather than sekolah menengah kebangsaan , since my school is long to fill in the space given?

Eh, if i upload online, can i just scan the real certificate?

Then, since it's real, i don't have to certify it right?

apparently i thought spm certificate alone is enough, so i didn't go and certify my spm result slip.. but they NTU want the prove of english 1119, which is only printed on spm result slip, but not spm cert (lol).

so i was thinking, if i just scan the real slip and upload it, will that do?
but then, the result slip is in black and white, they can't tell if it's real or photocopy. haha!

help~ =]

LOL.You still need to have them certified. Not the original ones, just the photocopies. About the 1119 O-Level certificate, there's one original copy for that. I got mine together with the SPM certificate. So, I think you should ask your school regarding this matter.

Hope this helps.

Either way will do, I suppose. It's up to your convenience.
