National University of Singapore (NUS) IB student help? watch

    • Thread Starter

    What is the average student admission score for IB throughout the years for NUS business, or anyone you know who has gotten in?

    And if you know about the business course.

    I'm currently studying in Singapore, applying to NUS with a IB score of 34/42 with 2 bonus so 36/45.

    I have all my CAS hours done (50 in creativity, 50 action, 50 service) and done some community service work over my IB diploma days.

    What do you think my chances of getting in are?

    The regular BBA program wants 40 points; the DDPs involving Business mostly need 42+.

    You can still get in if you did some pretty outstanding extracurricular things (started a business, etc) through the discretionary admissions scheme.

    Source: I'm Singaporean, tons of fellow Singaporeans applying, I'm applying, I'm in touch with NUS admissions tutors.

    Try applying to SMU (Singapore Management University), which is relatively newer, rapidly rising reputation, more welcoming for internationals (lower requirements), and arguably has a much better program for business. You also have the opportunity to earn TWO degrees in 4 years, as their DDPs are quite easy to enter. Better location too. Their curriculum is modeled after the best business curriculum in the world (UPenn's Wharton school).
Do you think parents should charge rent?
