What are the eligibility criteria to apply to NTU and NUS?
As Indian students complete their schooling and prepare themselves to enter college, they start facing pressure and confusion with the limitless choices they are presented with. Some institutions in India may appear to be a good choice, but there are also numerous study options in countries abroad such as Singapore at the undergraduate study levels. The destination could be a better study option for an average student who may not have very high cut-off marks.
Singapore universities may be a better alternative for Indian students in terms of acquiring admissions without posing too much of a difficulty for them academically. Singapore universities fall under the affordable category, and students need not stress too much over their entry requirements because it's much easier to enter these universities from any other part of the globe. 
Universities such as NTU and NUS from Singapore, which are popular choices, have set different requirements for Indian undergraduate students. NTU just needs 10th or 12th certificates, a statement of purpose essay and recommendations, but SAT scores are optional. NUS exempts Indian students from appearing for SAT if they are from the CBSE or ISE boards. Entry requirements basically vary from program to program and are different for each university depending on what background the students are applying from, such as the academic boards they study under.
