You will need teacher references if you are applying for scholarships / medicine / discretionary admission / SUTD / Yale-NUS.

 

You are highly encouraged to inform your teacher by 3 March about your intention to apply for these programmes and invite your teacher to act as your referee. 10 – 18 Mar is the term break and teachers may not be contactable then.

After you have submitted your application form, the universities will send an email / portal link to invite your teacher to write a reference.
