Calculating Rank Points JC – A Level University RP

Calculating Rank Points JC – A Level University RP, home tuition singapore, private tutor, tuition agency, singapore tuition

Calculating your Rank Points is a chore when you do not have straight A’s.

The A Levels is a make it or break it exam. Failing means retaking, going to Polytechnic or straight into the working world.

Calculating Rank Points

The University Admission Score (UAS) is computed as follows:

– Total of 90 Rank Points
– Best four content subjects (i.e 3 H2 and 1 H1 content subjects, with at least 1 content subject to be from a contrasting discipline)
– Either GP or KI grade taken in the same sitting
– H1 Project Work

Grade H2 Equivalent H1 Equivalent
A

B
17.5
8.75
C

7.5
D
12.5
6.25
E

S

Note: To calculate UAS if you are taking MTL (Mother Tongue Language), you would need to scale by dividing by 100 and then multiplying by 90. Take the higher score with or without MTL and that would be your JC Ranking Point.

Indicative Grade Profiles

Different courses in Universities have different IGPs. IGP determines the rough grades needed to enter the course, based on the previous cohort.

AAA/B: 3 subjects before “/” are grades for your H2 subjects. Grade after “/” represents worst performing H2 subject (for 4 H2 students), or H1 subject
90th Percentile: Top 10% of students that entered the course
10th Percentile: Bottom 10% of students that entered the course

Above shows NUS Indicative Grade Profiles (IGP) for their courses.

For Courses with 10th and 90th Percentile grades at AAA/A, students would require 88.75 or 90 Rank Points to be considered for admission. 

Other admission criterias may include, but not limited to:

– Co-curricular activities (CCA)
– Leadership positions
– Relevant Internship or Professional Experience in relation to the course
– Represent Nation for competitions

Note: The IGP Profiles serves only as a guide.

Grades are assumed to be GP C, PW C in the IGP.

1. The Grade Profiles may vary from year to year, depending on the number and performance of applicants and the number of places available. 
2. Meeting the IGP of a course does NOT guarantee admission to that course.
3. Individual courses may have specific grade requirements for certain subjects (interview, screening). You have to meet them in order to even be considered for admission.
