To endorse means to declare your support for that person. Think of it as a recommendation.

Guess so. I hv a friend, a STPM 2009 leaver (5 subjects taker) who applied for medicine but received pharmacy offer instead. Haha, so the competition is quite tough esp in those critical courses.

for dentistry, its already difficult for any applicant to get in due to the small cohort size(48, if i'm not wrong for the recent enrollment of 2010/11).

for medicine, as far as i know, there's at least one stpm graduate for the past few batches. so if your grades and co-curricular activities are decent, i would say no harm trying

but do take note, if you are offered either med or dentistry in NUS, be prepared to spend the next >8+ years in singapore respectively. this is due to the lengthy duration of the course + the bond that you are required to serve. so if you do get shortlisted for the interview, do be prepared to say that you're willing to stay in singapore for a long long while.

My advise, apply no matter what's your grade. Just try. You'll be surprised =)

I'm just wondering, there will be a written test right?? what kind of topic will be it?? i'm applying for medicine course.

And during the interviews, will they ask some singapore-related political question that can puzzle you till jaw drop?? I'm pretty scared that they might ask some global political questions since i'm not a person who concerns about global news

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!!!

Is it better for us to photocopy all the certs no matter it's a sijil penghargaan or sijil penyertaan? In fact, only sijil penghargaan or those national-level certs is required right?
Anyone knows about this?
Thanks.

I thought medicine is not available for international students? NUS does not allocate any medicine places for foreign students since NUS cannot cope the high demand of medicine course by Singaporean themselves.
