Applicants (regardless of nationality) presenting the Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'A' Level results.
'A' Level Curriculum (H1/H2/H3 Subjects)
These are the minimum requirements needed for applicants (regardless of nationality) appearing for the new 'A' Level curriculum (1.e. H1/H2/H3 subjects) examination in November 2011 to apply for admission to NUS in 2012
- Pass in at least two subjects at H2 Level and offer either General Paper (GP) or Knowledge & Inquiry (KI) in the same sitting.
- Meet the Mother Tongue Language (MTL) requirement for admission by having one of the following:
- minimum of D7 for the higher MTL paper taken at the 'O' Level examination.
- minimum of 'S' grade for the H1 MTL paper or General Studies in Chinese.
- minimum of 'S' grade for the H2 MTL paper taken at the 'A' Level examination.
- pass in the MTL 'B' Syllabus paper at the 'A' Level examination.
If you are a candidate who has been exempted from MTL as approved by MOE, the MOE-approved subject-in-lieu will be considered as your MTL subject.
If you are unable to fulfil the MTL requirement for admission but satisfy all other admission requirements, you will be admitted on a provisional basis. During your course of study, you will be required to attend the MTL course conducted by the University or attain the minimum requirement as listed above by retaking the MTL paper at the 'A' Level examination before you are allowed to graduate.
Please note that meeting the minimum admission requirements as indicated in items A & B above does not indicate that the applicant can be admitted as admission to the University is based on open competition. It would be dependent on the applicant's academic standing, the courses he/she has selected and the competition amongst the applicants in the year of application. In exceptional cases, work experience and other achievements may be considered.
NUS has published the A-level and polytechnic Indicative Grade Profiles and course places of the previous academic year to enable applicants to make more informed choices when applying for admission. Please refer to the Office of Admissionsfor more information.
