SINGAPORE - More top students in Singapore are choosing Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as their first choice.

The proportion of those in the top 15 per cent of the A-level cohort entering NTU has risen by 83 per cent this year from that in 2011, said its president, Professor Bertil Andersson, at the opening ceremony of its annual convocation yesterday.

This has resulted from NTU becoming more well-known internationally, after faring better in global university rankings, he said.

For instance, in a ranking published by London-based education and career consultancy Quacquarelli Symonds in September last year, NTU rose to the 41st position, up from 47th in 2012.
