Hey guys! Just to let you know after waiting many weeks, I finally gotten my NOC results. I was rejected.
Thank you for your application and your interest in the NOC programme.
After much consideration, we regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you a place on the NOC Programme.
You are welcome to re-apply to the programme in the future if you are eligible and our application will open again in Jan 2014.
In the interim, we would recommend that you pursue activities/courses that will further develop and strengthen your entrepreneurial skills and instincts.
You may wish to explore the resources and potential opportunities available within the NUS Enterprise Cluster (www.nus.edu.sg/enterprise/) to fuel your entrepreneurial drive.
We wish you all the best in your future entrepreneurial endeavours and your studies in NUS.
The dejection was further emphasized as I was studying for my mid-term in the midst of an e-learning week. Knowing that NOC was the programme that I must go for, I cleared my head and wrote my appeal e-mail to NOC almost immediately. I portioned my appeal into four parts:
- Introduction (name, course)
- Reasons for appeal (entrepreneurial spirit, passion, etc)
- Conclusion (sum it up)
- Thank you
Put in some effort into your appeal and showcase your enthusiasm for the NOC programme!
