AY2010-11 Grade Profiles, Polytechnic GPAs and Programme Places for ‘A’ level and Polytechnic Applicants Eligibility

for admission is an important factor when students decide on which programme to study. Applicants need to be aware that the admission criteria may vary from programme to programme. For the popular programmes with small intake, competition is expected to be keener with more stringent grade requirements. In order to help prospective applicants make an informed choice, our University has put together the information in a tabular format for easy reference. In using the tables below, please note the following: a. The grade profiles, GPAs and programme places may vary from year to year, depending on the number and performance of applicants, and the number of places available. b. Meeting the previous year‟s grade/GPA scores of a programme does not guarantee admission to that programme for the current year. c. Certain programmes may have specific subject requirements. The programmes marked with asterisk (*) are those where additional assessments such as interviews, selection tests, and/or portfolios are required. Please refer to http://www3.ntu.edu.sg/oad2/website_files/ALevel/Min_Subject_Requirements.pdf for more details.
