|Q.||What is the non-JUPAS admission quota?|
|A.||We expect to admit around three students through non-JUPAS in 2017.|
|Q.||The non-JUPAS intake is very small, so what is the size of the programme?|
We expect to have around 25 students. The intakes are from JUPAS and non-JUPAS, and include local and non-local students.
|Q.||What are the IB scores / GCEAL grades of the admitted students in the past?|
|A.||We have interviewed applicants who have IB score >=30 (including bonus) or have 3 subjects of grade A in GCEAL last year. We expect students who will receive our offers to have IB scores of at least 33 (including bonus) or have 3 subjects of grade A in GCEAL.|
|Q.||Do I need to attend an admission interview?|
|A.||Yes, it is a must for a non-JUPAS applicant to join ONE interview before he/she can receive any offer from this programme. The interview is usually arranged in mid/late March. Another interview would be arranged in June/July for shortlisted candidates who cannot join us in the interview in March or are shortlisted after the March interview. We prefer to meet applicants face to face in a group setting instead of through any digital means.|
|Q.||Do you have any subject requirement on IB (e.g. HL for certain subjects)?|
|A.||We do not have any subject requirements on IB; however, preference may be given to students who have studied SL/HL Mathematics.|
