uh... not necessary.

It really depends on the Poly's student overall GPA (grade point average) and the choice and popularity of the faculty in the uni that he/she is aiming for.

Should one wish to pursue medicine in the university, what are the available options in poly and which are the poly that offer them?

Btw, is it too late for a 'O' level student to apply for the course now?

Your reply is very much appreciated.

Medicine straight go jc. Exceedingly difficult for any poly top student though not entirely impossible.

For jc students its easier to pursue it in Australia, University of Melbourne, entrance requirement only 3 As in A-level. Locally needs almost straights As plus good cca and cip records.

Hi Innovate,

My niece had been home-schooled all along and she took her 'O' level last year. She only qualifies for poly and wish to retake 'O' level this year. I am not sure whether her choice is wise and wish to give her some alternative advice.

So, it seems like she still needs to go by the JC route, preferably.

Came across this newspaper article "From Poly to NUS Medicine" http://www.asiaone.com/News/Education/S ... 09774.html

However, I don't think that it means that only students doing biotechnology at Ngee Ann Polytechnic will get into NUS Medicine.

As highlighted in the article >> "Unlike junior college (JC) students, who apply with A-level results, poly students are assessed on their poly results and O-level grades. But like all other applicants, they take an essay test and go through two rounds of interviews."

The 2 students get 10 and 9 respectively in their O levels.

From what I understand, application to Poly for 'O' level students is over. In fact, the appeal results were out too. However you can still contact the admission office for the poly you are interested and ask them how can you apply for their course.

Hope the info are useful to you.
