I have completed my B.BA from NMIMS, Mumbai. I am interested in applying for the Masters in Management program at NUS, Singapore. What is the minimum TOEFL and GMAT score needed for applying?
—Kuntal Bhattacharya

One of the most important components of the Masters in Management program at the National University of Singapore (NUS) application is your academic (college) result. The minimum TOEFL score needed for applying to the program is 100 for internet-based test. Although GMAT is not mandatory, a good GMAT score will strengthen your application.

My daughter wants to apply to the US for a Bachelors in Architecture program. However, she has not been able to make a portfolio. Is it possible to apply without a portfolio?
    —Raveena Agarwal

Most good universities in the US require a portfolio as a part of their application process to the Bachelors in Architecture (B.Arch) program. The portfolio along with your school grades is an essential part of the eligibility criteria that determines your chances of getting admission. However, there are several other schools that offer the B.Arch or B.Sc Architecture program without the portfolio as a part of the application process. Please note that you may have to study extra classes or courses to make up for your lack of portfolio even in these colleges.

I am currently studying a B.Sc in Biochemistry. I am interested in studying M.SC in Biochemistry in the US. Can you please guide me on the application process.
    —Rajiv Merchant

Most graduate programs in Biochemistry in the US are PhD programs. Also, most colleges DO NOT accept a 3 years Undergraduate Degree. You will need a two-year Master’s Degree to apply.  You will need to apply through the respective websites of the colleges that you finalize. Your application will consist of the following:

  • Online College Form & Fees
  • Official College Transcripts
  • GRE score
  • TOEFL score
  • Statement of Purpose
  • Personal Statement
  • Recommendation Letters

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
