What made you say it's better to enrol in form 6?
Also, What's the minimum STPM CGPA that I must obtain in order to receive a full scholarship from NUS?
Hi. Can you name me some of the non-competitive courses that you've mentioned?
Does NUS offer Actuarial Science?
I'm interested in applying for AS to NUS after my STPM as well.
1. It means that it's better to do Form 6 or A-levels (compared to Matrix/Foundation) if you're planning to apply to NUS because NUS prefers students who have those qualifications.
2. Scholarship from NUS are few and far between. Even National Top-scorers with perfect CGPAs fail to secure a scholarship. However, everyone is entitled the Ministry of Education tuition grant, which, if I'm not mistaken, covers 90% of your tuition fees.
3. Non-competitive courses are courses which are not highly sought after. Perhaps like environmental engineering, computational biology, etc... I'm not quite sure about the recent trend.
4. As mentioned, NUS doesn't have a specific AS application for undergraduate students. All students start of as Econs majors in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Only in their second/third year do they compete to apply for the *limited* slots for AS.
