    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview is efficient and concise. Two faculty professors interviewed me, and the questions were generic. FYP is something important to them as that is the main research experience that a undergraduate student may have. Academic result is also important, and you need to prepare some explanation if you did not perform so well on certain subject.
