Students with A levels should generally offer at least 10 Academic Units (AUs). General Paper (GP), Project Work (PW), Mother Tongue Language (MTL) at A-level or Higher MTL at O-level, and other H1 subjects are considered as 1 AU. H2 subjects, including Knowledge and Inquiry (KI), are considered as 2 AUs. H3 subjects are considered as 1 AU. Students with qualifications other than A levels, such as the International Baccalaureate (IB), NUS High School and polytechnic diplomas are also eligible to be considered for PSC scholarships.
The application period is from 1 September to 15 March the following year for undergraduate scholarships, and from 1 September to 30 Apr the following year for mid-term scholarships and the PSC Master's Scholarship. We encourage you to submit your application early. PSC interviews candidates between January to May each year. Provisional scholarship offers may be made before the release of the A level / IB / NUSHS / Polytechnic final examination results. These scholarships are confirmed upon the release of the respective results. Applying for PSC scholarships before the release of your results gives you more time to fill out your application form and prepare the essay. This could be helpful for males who are enlisted into NS. PSC will also have more time to process your application, and may contact you to sit for the necessary psychometric tests and psychological interview.
