I just had a credit in my UEC, so do I have the qualification apply Foundation Mass Communication? Or can I use my senior 2’s result to apply?
It is not possible for you to enter the Foundation course. You will need at least 3Bs to enter the Diploma in Mass Communication. If you have taken the SPM, then you can use that to enter Foundation. If not, the other option is to go to Singapore private college. If interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and mobile number.
