      Hi Audrey, I’m assuming you’ve completed your A’s/Diploma and waiting to be enrolled into university this coming August?
      If I may ask, what stream (Arts or Science) did you do in JC or what major did you read in Poly?
      Personally, for me I chose Business because I was an Arts student in JC. Took Literature, History and Econs as my H2 subjects, which were very heavy in essay writing. I didn’t have much science nor mathematics background, and I didn’t want to take humanities as the industry in Singapore is pretty small in that field (unless you want to go into civil service or academia), so a business degree was the most logical choice as it is largely viewed as a generic degree.
      As to why I chose NTU and not NUS, there were a few deal breakers.
      1) Location. I stay in Jurong West, so NTU’s just a stone’s throw away. There are days where I’ll just hop on my bike and cycle to school. Saves me transportation costs and time spent on the road.
      2) Duration of studies. NTU’s (single) degree for NBS is 3 years long (plus direct honours), compared to NUS or SMU, which is 4. If one is willing to “chiong”, can even complete within 2.5 years. I nearly managed that, but didn’t quite plan my calendar quite properly, so ended up having to spend my last semester completing my final two S/U modules but thus had time to do a part-time private internship. https://yearningforlove.wordpress.com/2015/04/30/intern-annals-terrapinn/
      3) I was offered USP enrollment at NTU. Another reason why I chose NTU was that I was invited to join the pioneer batch of USP in NTU. This program allows for a multi-disciplinary approach to one’s curriculum as the student has to take modules that bridges across his/her disciplines. http://www.ntu.edu.sg/usp/Pages/default.aspx
      These were the 3 major factors which made me leaned towards NTU instead of NUS/SMU. However, there is nothing to say that NUS or SMU do not have their pros in it. All depends on how you weigh your concerns regarding your university life. SMU for example, has a very different education style from the rest, which can make one stand out from the conventional. My advise is to take your time and slowly decide what each school can offer, and if they meet your requirements and personal fulfillment.
      Should you require more information or advice, don’t hesitate to contact me again, and I’ll respond as soon as I can:)
