lucky you, at least you have an offer :P

Umm, its one of the sections in the online application for UCAS. You can either ask your teacher to log into your account and help you fill it up or ask him/her to type out one in the word document and email to you so you can paste it inside.

@Valour, I'm assuming you are a male? If you are, my suggestion is to concentrate on getting the best results for your A levels before you start thinking about uni (although its good to plan a bit). The British Council in Singapore holds quite a lot of UK Education Fairs throughout the year so when there's one you can go there and talk to the Unis you are interested in and they are more than willing to answer your questions Don't forget (if you're male), you still have NS to go through which gives you plenty of time to sort everything out

well, they only allow one reference (testimonial)

As for certificates, it seems they don't ask for it, I guess the uni will ask for it (one uni asked for mine so far)

So did you snail mail it? You can't fax because of the whole authentic certification thing, right?

umm, for the certificates you can actually go back to the school and ask them to sign the photocopy version for you to make it a certified true copy. Then you can scan that one.

No idea, never applied to Cambridge. Though, I had the impression when I applied to Warwick, LSE, and Edinburgh, they looked at my A level results rather than O levels.

Me, though I'd probably get rejected.

Hellos guys Long story short, I used to attend a local school in Singapore before moving here to the USA, so I have friends in SG and like chicken rice, etc.

Will a UK BSc Economics degree put you in a higher stead compared to an Aussie commerce/finance degree, when applying for fields such as investment banking etc. in Singapore? Does anyone know?

I would think that UK degrees are more respected than Aussie ones.

I think Singaporeans would prefer UK because of our colonial roots. And because UK is more results oriented than US, which is what our education system has been emphasizing on.

I have a query. Is Bristol or Edinburgh better for Econs? Thanks. Need to fill in my last slot for UCAS

Hey people ,

Did any of you have work shadowing opportunities at hospitals or clinics?
I tried calling several hospitals and all of their answers are the same-no job shadowing opportunities available.Im truly distressed by my situation.

I know that most people managed to get e opportunities because they have family members who are doctors as well.

Yes. It's mostly a lot of string pulling through contacts
