    Lol, I think my grades pale in comparison with yours luh. Haha, same batch, hope I'll be able to disrupt 2 months prior to the end of my ns liability. This way, I'll attend school next year, hopefully.
    oh? I thought only some scholars are able to disrupt. :/ My sibling tried to do so last year also. But failed, zzz.

    Another straight As student! I'm taking my A levels this year so I'm gonna be doing my application end of this year. Having to get that many As seems pretty daunting! Any tips? :p:
    EHH.. i think the general advice on studying hard blahblahblahs applies? but then again... there's always ppl who study much lesser (but absorbs faster) and still do soooo well.:yes: Good luck for your As!

    I don't think so? There isn't any organisation that I've heard of that will sponsor one on a law degree. Maybe PSC?

    @summersolitude and melson

    Like what you said, it is not easy to judge. What I would advise you to do would be to email the admissions head for the module you want to take and direct your questions to them. Most importantly, ask if there are still spaces available (considering we start applying only in March/April, which is already at Phase 2 of the UK application process which starts in January I believe).

    Some universities have a high admission rate for International students. Generally, London Universities (I heard ICL has a huge intake of Singaporean students), OxBridge etc have a very high rate. Some may take in more International students because we generate a huge amount of their income. Thus some might be more inclined to take in International students with a slightly lower grade (But not that low!). I would say for appreciated courses, maybe only 1 grade lower.

    Something I learnt while speaking to an admissions officer which I want to share :

    Singapore A level system is harder than the UK one. Generally, an AAB here is considered an AAA there. For Law, our GP may or may not be taken into consideration depending on how good your grades are (Good meaning A2 and above if you want to read law). On the contrary, their general studies in UK is not taken into consideration at all, except perhaps for the UCAS tariff points.

    Score well in your LNAT. That is very important!

    Put in effort in your personal statement. It will go a long way.

    Also, Ill assume both of you are guys. You have 2 years to apply then, and in both years you can apply at all stages (from Jan) even up to clearing.

    It's worth a try. I applied very late (last minute decision when I was headed for NTU/NUS and just decided to switch, so I applied in May this year).

    Good luck in your applications and I hope you make it to wherever you want to study! I'm reading law too
    Thank you for your time. Where are you currently reading law at? Were you required to take any additional testing requirements, say the IELTS? How about the difficulty of the LNAT? My apologies for the tirade of questions.

    why add salt to my wound. zzz. uk fees very expensive yknow.

    MPA does. PSC does. eh... actually if u check the BrightSparks book, many of the organisations say they accept Law. Whether they give scholarships out to 'em is another story.

    Besides, if you're bonded, you can't be admitted to the Bar.. yah.

    So, no, I'm not a scholar. HAHA.

    actually there are loads of scholarship boards that apparently give the green light to law prospects to apply for the scholarship. but when you actually go for the interview, and when push comes to shove, they rather take some other degree-pursuer over law ones.

    been there done that with a couple of my friends. law isnt really a 'bondable' degree

    Hi all,

    'm applying to Cambridge Churchill for engineering. According to the cambridge website, they do not give any test to Churchill's applicants for
    engineering. However, I'm wondering whether that is only for UK
    students and not for international students. Can someone please help
    me clarify this?
    Best thing to do would be to email the admissions tutor at Churchill, or try asking this question again in the Cambridge forum http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=15 (or one of its subforums).

    That depends really. I know for a fact that Cambridge sometimes gives harder offers to international students (it wasn't unheard of for some offers to be AAAA or to include S paper distinctions, as opposed to the standard AAA offer for Cambridge). Things may be different now, though, following the introduction of the A* grade for UK A levels (and the consequent increase of Cambridge's standard offer to A*AA)...
