Request some one to please do an analysis of the essay questions that NUS has put up. I am especially struggling in interpreting essay 1. Please suggest how to go about structuring our response in essay 1.

Thanks,

Hi Abhishek,

In my opinion, by Essay 1 NUS wants the candidates to show instances in which their leadership skills and knowledge can be seen.
In case you have submitted the application for ISB, then I would say that this essay is pretty much similar to Essay 1 of ISB i.e. Attitude, Skills, and Knowledge differentiate people.
In case you need more details, feel free to ask.
