Admission to research based program in NUS/NTU
Hello Everyone, I am Ayshwarya, and I passed my B.E mechatronics in 2007 with 87%. I worked in IT for about 4 years and took a break for maternity. I am currently residing in Singapore and teaching part-time for the diploma mechanical students.
I want to take up higher studies now and thinking of applying for the research based programs in NUS/NTU
I am planning to give GRE and TOEFL before November to apply for 2016 August admissions. However I have the following questions. It would be of great help if you could advise on the below
1. Should I have a GATE score as well for this?
2. In NUS website I found that the admission criteria asks for Bachelors with honours degree. Is it same as the bachelors degree with First Class Distinction?
3. Will I have a problem in selling my application because of the break in career?

Extremely happy for you! I'm glad that I could be of some help. All the best for a very bright future! Pranjul would be there to help you acclimatize with NUS (though he is keeping quite busy with his research these days owing to the final year of PhD). And please do share your overall experience of getting admission at NUS, I hope you understand that it would be of great help to other aspirants.
Congrats and Best wishes once again!
RE: Tips for Admission in National University of Singapore - vallari23 - 07-27-2015
I recently completed my B.E in Biotechnology with 74% (Aggregate 66.16%). My GATE score is 93.86 percentile. I am very much keen on doing Masters in biological sciences(research work) from NUS. Also I have a Research paper published in IJERGS in the May-June 2015 edition. I have done a 1 month internship at NIRRH (ICMR), Genetic Research Center. Do I have chances to get in? are there any chances to get scholarship? Shall I give GRE? If I apply to NUS with this GATE score after a 1 year experience would the probability of admission increase? Also, I am confused between NUS and ICT, Mumbai. I would be really very thankful to you if you could help me decide!
RE: Tips for Admission in National University of Singapore - msram45 - 08-08-2015
I am a student(currently in 7th sem) of Electrical Engg., NIT Durgapur.
10th : 9.2(out of 10) CBSE
12th : 88% CBSE
GRE : Yet to take
GATE: I havent very confident in this exam as I have not prepared for this.
I am interested to apply for NUS. I dont have any papers published but have completed 3 different industrial trainings. What should be my future steps towards this process to ensure a seat in 2016 summer?
Eagerly awaiting a reply!
RE: Tips for Admission in National University of Singapore - SunilNagpal - 08-08-2015
Well you will need a qualifying exam first of all, it can either be GATE or GRE. Better appear for both. And since NUS has a minimal requirement of just 90 percentile in GATE, you shouldn't find it difficult to achieve the same. There is ample time to prepare for GATE, I am sure you will be able to crack it up!
And about the publications (that's not at all a limitation). Yes they add a shine to your profile, but very few students applying for NUS have publications to support their profile(s). It's the interview that decides the fate which is all dependent upon your technical know how and general aptitude towards research.
Your recommendations have a great impact on the application, so ensure that you get good recommendations.
Your profile overall is great (no hiccups on that part).
As I suggest other candidates too, do contact a prof in NUS expressing your interest in doing research under his guidance.
For now, focus on GATE/GRE/Recommendations.

Your GATE score is well above needed, but I'm bit worried about the aggregate percentage. In which band do you fall in terms of ranking (like 1st division, second division etc). The information is often mentioned in the degree or behind your marksheets. So 74% is your final year marks?
Your case is a touch and go...you may or may not get the call...but I would suggest in the favor of applying for NUS. I dont think GRE would change the story to a great extent for NUS. GATE should suffice. But if you can score well above 310 in GRE, I am sure you will stand very good chances in NUS.
Right now you shouldn't be confused over NUS and ICT. Apply for NUS, go for M.Tech in ICT, if you get the call from NUS then go ahead for it otherwise keep your M.Tech continued and score well in Mtech to apply later at NUS with a better GATE as well as academic score.
About experience, yes it does help...
All the best
P.S: Extremely sorry for missing your query...somehow it just skipped my eye.
