bernsbry11 Posted April 27, 2015 Share Posted April 27, 2015 Hi all, I'd like to ask a question that's been weighing on my mind. I have a degree from National University of Singapore (NUS) with at gpa of 2.9. It's extremely low, I know. But for those that are not familiar with Singapore, you should know NUS is a brutal killing field and grades on a controversial bell curve. It's college that constantly ranks in the Top 20. I didn't do well in my uni years and went through all the similar things mentioned here by others like depression etc I'd recently applied for a few European universities for their grad programmes and was rejected. But looking through their websites and current list of students made me feel even more uneasy. Several of the students were from unranked universities in Indonesia, India etc. Googling further on these universities you'd come to realise they don't even have stable websites! But given the fact they were given admission, means their grades were good. Speaking to several indonesian peers, they told me of the various dubious ways of several colleges in their country and their grading procedures. My questions is this, how can an admission panel differentiate between a low GPA from a top college vs a good GPA from a college with dubious standing? Does an admission panel simply place them on an even playing field? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
