If you get GPA above 3.5 with 130 cu completed u be invited to complete the honor program and nid to complete another 40cu of module to get the honor degree.

Oh! so does that mean i can choose a basic degree first before choosing a IT+business degree? cause if i determine that doing PT Degree is still ok for me, i can choose the 40 CU, which are required in the IT+business degree and convert into that? from basic(130cu) to IT+business(170cu)

What the dropout rate for part time students due to grade/commitment?

Went open house and was told by some lecturer that its quite high..

I'm planning to study business and it's not related to what I had studied before..
the drop out rate quite high,but the complete rate at the same time also quite high..it depends.. cannot say every individual is the same. if like that hor,everyone is automated robot le.. some ppl study non-related de but take 4 mods +1 ucore and work full time still can get high gpa, some score average.. some no need to work but still score badly.. Effort is a must la to study,but whether u are able to understand concepts easily is another thing.

Most important of all,dont listen to all those ppl that say, "if most ppl can study full time and take full load, why cant you and by right,since you are not working,u should be scoring better".

I think if u got fren or wat in same course enrol same time,should be easier,especially first year,cause alot of same modules across different courses.

sorry, i'm a little confused by what you wrote. when they say a basic degree, they mean one that is without honours. you still need to choose from the programmes offered and each one has a curriculum plan.

are you referring to this when you say IT+business? http://www.unisim.edu.sg/programmes/...ess-(ERP).aspx what rainbow said about being invited for honours is correct but won't apply for this since it's direct. you can always apply for transfer of programme too (e.g. from direct honours to basic if you find you can't cope). best to check with the admissions office though.

if you do apply for a transfer, you will be able to transfer over any relevant units from the previous programme to the new programme.

IT+Business is direct honors, you must clear 170cu to graduate no matter what...

For basic degree, need to clear 130cu to graduate, but if your GPA 3.5 or more, you can opt to accept their honours degree invitation...

yeah i think divasion is right in the sense that it really depends on you. don't be discouraged by what that lecturer said :/ i guess he/she was just trying to be realistic but honestly, don't worry too much ok? most of us are just the same as you. yes it does take effort and sacrifice but if you work hard i'm sure you'll be fine.

so many other people have successfully completed and graduated so focus on them rather than those who didn't make it. if you didn't study business before, you might have to work a little harder but for most of us it's a learning curve too. and you won't be the only one who's studying something that they have no prior experience or knowledge in, so yeah don't worry too much before you've even started!

Yup! i'm referring to that, as i do not want to over committed to 170cu degree and find out that i am unable to commit to it. Wasting all that grant and $$. Thanks for the advise, will check with admission office if i am able to convert from 130cu degree to 170cu degree, it a much safer convert as compare to 170cu degree to 130cu degree.

Oh, does that mean if my IT degree has 170CU but lacking some of the core CU from IT+Business, i am only getting Honor in IT degree instead of IT+Business degree?

I think it all depends on yourself... even if it gets tough you must keep yourself going

You do not want to over commit to 170cu degree but you want to convert from 130cu to 170cu degree ?

Yes...Unless you study IT+Business to get the IT+Business degree

ok hmm from what i understand, you need to fulfil the requirements of each programme in order to graduate with a degree. that means that if you start off by choosing to do a basic degree in IT, and then you decide later to change to IT+business (if the admissions office confirms this can be done), *only* the common modules that you have been completed will be counted.

e.g. ICT121 in the IT programme is not part of the modules for IT+business, so it won't be counted. ICT131 is part of the modules for both IT and IT+business, so that one is ok.

one way is to choose only those modules that are common to both so that if you decide to transfer, you won't have wasted your time and money. looking at both, it seems like there's quite a bit of overlap in the compulsory modules but not the electives, so check it out properly before you apply.

Thank all for the help! Just called today and noticed that they mention that it is impossible to transfer between the two course which i had chosen. It seem like i am only able to choose IT or IT+business. Does anyone know how does honor actually impact our industry now?
