Hi, I'm currently doing IT in NP, my cumulative as of my last semester which is 2.1 is now at 3.2.
I kinda messed up in the second sem in my first year which really made it hard to pull my gpa back up. I'm thinking of doing further studies but I don't really know what to do. I'm expecting a 3.3 this semester as I've had two modules I really struggled with.
A brief calculation brought me to the conclusion that even if I were to work insanely hard for both my internship and my final semester in school, I wouldn't be able to enter computer science, information systems or computer engineering since even if I got straight As for my final two semesters, I would get a cumulative of about 3.45. I'm not exactly sure what to do as of now. I'm quite interested in Front-end web development and user experience design. But that said, I'm just worried that if I applied for any MNC jobs with my potato resume, I would still be rejected before even reaching the interview stage. Which is why I want to further my studies. I'm not so sure about digipen or SIT, but based on some research on other forums, I see that people from SIM can't really find jobs either and end up being stuck in some dead end job (Source is from a few years ago though, so it may be different). So yep.
Also quite sure overseas studies is not viable.
You can try to apply to SIT. Try to pull up your GPA.
If I am not wrong, SIT only requires a GPA of 3.0 for entry. They are also looking at other areas (e.g. interest & passion) as well.
Try your best to pull up your GPA to the max possible .
