Hello

I am first year STPM student, studying in Art stream (p.perniagaan+ekonomi+perakaunan+Am).
I am thinking after STPM I would like to further my study in National University of Singapore.
I have seen a lot forum discussions about Stpm to NUS, but it seemed to me only science stream Stpm leavers stood the high chance to earn a place into NUS, since i have not read about any arts/business students got into NUS.

I was a science stream student and got 11As in SPM with 7A+, So i think 4.O in Stpm ( art stream) should not be a problem if i work hard.

I would like to study Bachelor of Psychology and Business, or Ecomomics and Business management.

My first choice University is NUS.

So, here are the questions:

1.What are the chances to get into NUSingpore? Is it really that competitive/ possible for art stream stpm leaver like me to enter NUS?

2.For other oversea universities in UK/USA, I know Standford and universities in UK accept STPM leavers. Does JPA give scholarships to STPM business student to study in UK/US? Any other schorlarships offer for STPMers who want to study in UK/US?

3. Do universities in US/UK accept Stpm Business students?

Any other advices are appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, I am going to NUS this August, I am an STPM student and the entrance can be quite competitive for hot courses like dentistry and law. It is definitely possible to get in with 4.0 and a good interview I guess.

Astro, Khazanah and JPA(only IVY league schools) actually sponsor oversea studies

STPM has wide recognition from many unis in US and UK. You have to take SAT for US.

Don't worry. Just go for it.

I know for a fact that for science courses there's no problem in STPM students going abroad. I didn't take STPM myself but I met someone at Khazanah Stage 2 who got an offer from Imperial for Biochemistry, and I know that Singaporean unis even prefer STPM compared to A-levels, as they consider it to be on the same level of difficulty as their own Singapore-Cambridge A-levels.

Exactly! Don't worry, if you do well in STPM, you can certainly go anywhere.

Although you would still need to take SAT if you want to get into the US for most US universities. However some may not require it and some may only require that you take 2 subject tests not the whole SAT, such as MIT if I'm not mistaken.
