Getting your NUS Exam Results for 2009 Semester 1

(UPDATED 22 Dec 1925PM, at end of article)

(UPDATED 22 Dec 1210PM, at end of article)

NUS has released a 'enormous benefits' system that requires VPN access to get your exam results. The old exams page is no longer up, neither is there any information there on how to get the exam results.

Most of the online exam results should be released by 12pm Tuesday 22-Dec-2009 with some up to 5pm (non-graduating students)

The easy way for those in Singapore

Just SMS NUS<space>EXAMS<space><Matriculation Number/Registration Number><space><6-Digit PIN> to 78277.

Example: NUS EXAMS U001111A 123456

What is my 6 digit PIN number?

The hard and complicated way that requires JAVA or VPN access (means any intranet cafe may be out if they don't have JAVA installed!)

myISIS Login

(Navigation: Login to ISIS > Self Service > Student Center > select “View My Exam Results” from Academics Section)

Note: To access myISIS off campus, please log-in through NUS WebVPN first. The steps are as follow:

1. Make sure your PC/laptop language setting is English

2. Go to https://webvpn.nus.edu.sg/

3. User ID = your User ID/NUSNET ID

4. Password = Your NUSNET Password

5. Domain = NUSSTU

6. Once log-on successfully, you will see the page below:

7. Open a new internet page

8. Go to: https://myisis.nus.edu.sg/

9. User ID = your User ID/NUSNET ID

10. Password = Your NUSNET Password

If you need to access the site from a cafe and don't have Java installed, you're SOL. Borrow a laptop or beg the cyber cafe owner to allow you to install Java.

The above information is from: https://share.nus.edu.sg/registrar/student/exam/releasedates.htm (there are some pics here to walk you through, but I just used SOC VPN and accessed MYISIS). You may need to login with your username - NUSSTU/<matric> and password to access the share link.

Good luck for all your results... as I hope for mine...

UPDATE 22 Dec 1210PM: From the comments, looks like those trying to access MYISIS via WebVPN have a new problem - "The WebVPN service is currently unable to login more users. Please try to access it later. To report this issue, please contact ITCare at 6516 2080 or email ITCare@nus.edu.sg" - There are some ways around this

  1. Use NUS VPN. Follow guide here. You may need to login using your NUSNET account.
  2. Use SOC VPN. Follow guide here. You may need to login using your NUSNET account.
  3. Use SMS

The easiest and fastest is via SMS. Be patient, I had to wait about 15 minutes for my results when I SMSed at about 1105AM.

Useful links for those with the results

  1. Cap Calculator - http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/docs/undergrad/cap_cal.htm - be sure to use a fake name and number (start with U06) or else somebody else can access your results!
  2. Review of Exam Results - https://share.nus.edu.sg/registrar/student/exam/student.htm
  3. Satisfactory / Unsatisfactory Option - https://aces01.nus.edu.sg/passfail/StudentLogin
  4. CORS Bidding Schedule - http://www.cors.nus.edu.sg/schedule.html

UPDATE 22 Dec 1925PM: Thanks to a anonymous commenter, access MyISIS directly here! No stinky VPN needed!

I had no knowledge of this until my sister (also from NUS) told me last night! This is SO TROUBLESOME.

thanks^100000000000000000000000 man, i was totally freakinnnnnnn out.

Haha you'll have trouble login in later. The lousy system only allows a few ppl to log in at any time, and if they don't log out, there won't be login space for you.

Noah said...

Yeah man!!

"The WebVPN service is currently unable to login more users. Please try to access it later.
To report this issue, please contact ITCare at 6516 2080 or email ITCare@nus.edu.sg "

effloresce said...

Yeah, it's the same as the library PIN, or you can request for it here: https://aces01.nus.edu.sg/pinRetrieval/login.jsp

I have been trying since 9am too!!!!
but get the same stuff:
"The WebVPN service is currently unable to login more users"
This is ridiculus!!

Noah said...

take note results via sms will only be available 1 hour after the results release time

cal said...

ok guys and gals,

my results are supposed to be out by 9am....and I have been trying since.....but to no avail!!!

so i gave up at around 10 plus, tried the 'easier' sms service, and got my results within minutes!!!

so i guess it will be better for everyone to just forget about the new method, and use the sms instead, haha!!!

this system is so troublesometo us international students currently back at our home country!! we can't use the SMS service, and is it just IMPOSSIBLE to log in successfully *_*

Anonymous said...

ARGHHHHH!!!! NUS always do this kind of redundant things!!!

Anonymous said...

Yeah i totally agree - this new system is screwed up and wastes our time!! The old one was much better, and releasing the results at various times for years made more sense.

Anonymous said...

this freaking system sucks! Shouldnt they expect loads of ppl to access the system??

And the sms thg, i've tried an hour hour but to no avail...

Anonymous said...

If you had put ads on your blog, you could have minted money today with the traffic. Thanks for the help, man. Hope yours went well. Still can't access the bloody thing.

usman said...

thankyou mr anonymous for the link to access isis without vpn

Anonymous said...

I can login to myisis without problems, but my exam-result-status tells me this:
"You have no access to grades at this time."

Does anybody know how I can fix it or try another way to see my results?? THX!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for this post! I thought I was the only one who was lost, until I read the comments here. Damn it why must NUS always come up with useless new systems that complicate things!

NUS Computing Student said...

"You have no access to grades at this time." - check that you have paid library fines and returned overdue books. see http://www.lib.nus.edu.sg/help/service/checkfine.html

i only wish i had seen this sooner. my results were out at 9, i tried hopelessly til 12 n then gave up. then found out about the sms system which worked in mins! one qn tho, how do i view the breakdown of my grades?

NUS Computing Student said...

you can't view the breakdown of your grades online. But you can ask for review of exam results and then they **may** show you the breakdown then. Not sure as I have not tried it before.
