  • 10th percentile refers to the GPA which is higher than 10% of that of other poly students who entered the course. 90th percentile refers to the GPA which is higher than 90% of that of other poly students who entered the course.
  • Please note that the universities also take into consideration your O level grades when reviewing application. It is said that weightage of O level results is 20%.
* Additional assessments such as interviews, selection tests, and/or portfolios are required. # No representative GPA is shown as the sample size is small. ^ Number is an aggregation of all the courses in the same faculty .i.e. Science, Computing, Arts & social science.[/vc_message]
