Printer 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 profiles1 of the 10th and 90th percentiles of applicants offered places in AY2021/2022 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 AY2021/2022. 
  • Representative polytechnic Grade Point Averages (GPA) of the 10th and 90th percentiles of local polytechnic applicants offered places for courses at NUS in AY2021/2022 are shown in Table 2. 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 AY2021/2022. 
  • The number of course places taken up in NUS for AY2021/2022 is shown in Table 3. It is important to note that the number of course places changes from year to year.

Applicants seeking admission in AY2022/2023 can expect competition to be keener for courses with more stringent grade requirements and fewer places. In using the tables below, please note the following: 

  • 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 AY2022/2023. 
  • With effect from AY2020/2021, the grade profiles also take into account offers that were made under Aptitude Based Admissions (ABA).
  • The courses marked with an asterisk (*) are those where additional assessments such as interviews, selection tests, and portfolios are required. 
  • Certain courses may have specific subject requirements. Details can be found at NUS Admissions website
