You may want to contact the administrative institutions of the schools of the target countries where you would be wanting to study architecture (I assume the field is for now closed in Singapore, from your description).
Here in Spain there are also specifics about who can enter what careers, and unfortunately I am not able to inform you on these.
However, I must notice that this trend expanding all over the world seems to be working more that in rationalizing the work offer in getting more and more classist societies (that is, are mainly involutive rules) since they dismiss the vocational nature of the works, and frankly, I don't see anyone being able to study electronics or so not being able to study construction -and architectural- things.
So I here put my public vote all over the world for a liberalization of the ACCESS to the study of Architecture ... and ANYTHING ELSE. No one without the required knowledge must pass, but ALL must be allowed to try. This is my view.
By the way, Gutiérrez Soto, a locally famous architect in Spain in the middle XX century gained access to architecture in a "grace" exam. And are big the numbers of others that strained exam after exam prior to become architects and then show that their architectural empowerment (and sometimes much dign others) stood far higher than those that examined them.
So cheer, and good luck.
