Printer FriendlyPrinter Friendly Version


The University provides the following notification of grade profiles and course places to enable prospective applicants to make informed choices in their application for admission to NUS undergraduate courses.

  • Representative grade profiles of the 10th and 90th percentiles of applicants offered places in AY 2015/2016 for applicants holding Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-level qualifications are shown in Table 1. The grade profiles refer to the grades scored by Singapore-Cambridge A-level applicants in their three H2 and one H1 subjects. For the purpose of this notification, Grade C is assumed for both General Paper (GP) and Project Work (PW) in determining the grade profiles. Please note that certain courses may require grades higher than Grade C for GP. Please refer to Table 1 for the Grade Profiles of the 10th and 90th percentiles of A-level applicants offered places for courses at NUS in AY 2015/2016.

  • Representative polytechnic Grade Point Averages (GPA) of the 10th and 90th percentiles of local polytechnic applicants offered places for courses at NUS in AY 2015/2016 are shown in Table 2. Please note that in addition to the Polytechnic GPA, the Singapore-Cambridge O-level results of polytechnic applicants are also taken into account for university admissions. Please refer to Table 2 for the Polytechnic GPAs of the 10th and 90th percentiles of polytechnic applicants offered places for courses at NUS in AY 2015/2016.

  • The number of course places taken up NUS for AY 2015/2016 is shown in Table 3. It is important to note that the number of course places changes from year to year.

  • The grade profiles, GPAs and course places may vary from year to year, depending on the number and performance of applicants and the number of places available.

  • Meeting the previous year’s grade/GPA scores of a course does NOT guarantee admission to that course for AY2016/2017.

  • • Certain courses may have specific subject requirements. Details can be found at the NUS admissions website.
