I am thinking of applying to NUS Singapore for Materials Engineering. I shall be taking my CBSE Board this year, but I am having problems scoring in Hindi. I am expecting to score in the range of 95% in all other subjects except Hindi. Will they consider my Hindi score?
— Chetna Vyas
The Minimum Requirement to Apply at NUS Singapore for Indian Board Students are:At least 90% in all subjects including English but excluding the other languages in the Standard 12 Board exam. The Hindi language result is not as important as the other subjects. But, the admissions at NUS are very competitive. So, it would be best if you try to score your level best in all subjects including Hindi.
