Anonymous asked: Hi Teressa! I am from Singapore too! Wanted to ask you for some advice. I was rejected by a local uni (art course) and they give us a last for to appeal so could you give me some pointers on what to include in an appeal letter? The admin told me that for the course gpa doesnt matters (i got 2.9) and it's the portfolio that's important. But 1 of my friend got a better grade but her works are of average and my lecturer told me that my works are better so I am a little upset. Thanks in advance! x
Hello! Happy to receive a question from a fellow Singaporean! I’m sad to hear you didn’t get accepted by the university you would like to attend BUT I really do hope you would be after sending the appeal letter. First of all, though the admin said gpa doesn’t matter, it probably did even if a little, sadly. Totally understand if you’re a little upset, I’d be too, especially if it is a university I would very much like to go to.
Secondly, honestly, I have no idea what you should include in an appeal letter and the fact that I am terrible with writing isn’t much of a help so I’m incredibly sorry that I am not able to help you much. U_U
However, I approached a lecturer from my school for some pointers and here are a few she gave. You should definitely include why you think you should be in the course and focus on your passion while writing about that and maybe ask to be put at least in a waiting list. It isn’t much but I really hope this can at least help a little with having a general idea about what to write, you might be able to find some help from doing a quick search on google as well because the internet is a giant treasure chest.
