Submit Appeals »
Appeal after the release of application outcome
If you wish to appeal against the admission decision of NUS, you are required to submit an online appeal during the online appeal exercise which will usually begin in May every year. You may submit multiple appeals but only the last appeal received by the closing date of the online appeal exercise will be CONSIDERED.
A maximum of 1000 characters is allowed for the reasons of your appeal. You are strongly advised to exercise personal planning when submitting the appeal as applying only to NUS is not a valid reason for appeals. The length of the written appeal does not enhance your chances, hence it is important for you to provide a concise summary.
Mass emailing to multiple parties within NUS outside the appeal protocol will result only in slowing down the appeal process. The NUS Office of Admissions coordinates with the Faculties/Schools on appeals for admission. Please note that the outcome of appeal for all categories of applications will be released by end June / early July 2016.
Applicants, who appeal to us, may already have received one or more offers from the three universities. You should accept one of the courses that has been offered to you while you await the outcome of your appeal. If you do not accept any course that has been offered to you by the acceptance deadline, your place will be given to another applicant.
Please note that appeals to Architecture, Dentistry, Industrial Design, all Law-related courses, Medicine, Nursing and some of the concurrent / double degree programmes (CDPs/DDPs) that require a selection interview, will not be considered, unless you have attended the required aptitude tests and interviews conducted earlier.
