Speaking of this, the curriculum plan that is downloadable - it says Time Table and the details include (Day) (Week) (Term). What do they mean?

Maybe you could give a guide with some examples listed:
Monday Week 1 Term 1
Tuesday Week 2 Term 1
Monday Week 1 Term 2
Tuesday Week 2 Term 2
Thursday Week 1 Term 1

All modules have weekly lessons within a term right?

Thanks!

you only need care bout the monday and term 1 part. u dont need bother bout the week 1 or 2 for tat term. week 1 or 2 for term 1 MEANS the lesson starts earlier or later by one week tats all. for exam, just need know term 1= week 1 of exam ,term 2= week 2.

unless left with no other modules to take. dont even do smth like term 1,thurs fri, term 2 mon tues.. imagine the exams date.lol
every course have the curriculum plan tat u said..u just refer to which modules u wanna take,and see the right side, got say term 1 or wat, so that u wont end up picking conflicting modules day. for example, two modules on term 1 and on wednesday..in the end,u wont get the module..

however,for new enrollment IIRC, the FIRST SEMESTER, if u choose lets say, term 1 monday module, other modules tat is on term 1 monday should auto be grayed out and not clickable in the tick box.. 2nd semester onwards must ownself check properly.

Thanks a lot for these very informative input!

You mentioned don't even do something like
"Term 1 Thursday Friday + Term 2 Monday Tuesday"...

It means (right?) that
-Term 1 lessons will be on Thursday and Friday (no Monday Tuesday since that is Term 2)
-Term 2 lessons will be on Monday and Tuesday (no Thursday Friday since that is in the "past" of Term 1).

Effects of "day" on Exam?

because exams is always held in a TWO WEEKS PERIOD.

so if based on the example we used.. ur example will be on lets say we use today's date as exam. it will be 7th,8th and 11th 12th. thats a very bad combination unless u can last min study everything kind.

however,not all modules got exams, so click the modules u want to pick and it will open a pdf, from there u scroll down see got exam anot.

The day your lesson is held is the same day as the exam. So if you have your lessons on thu/fri, your exams will also be back-to-back thu/fri, which can obviously be stressful. The exam schedule is usually there when you're choosing modules, you should check the exam dates beforehand as well.

Hi Calliope,

I saw on the other thread that you are studying English too - can you give any tips/advice?

I refer to suss website for pt academic calender.
The instructional period (Classes)* is about 14 weeks? I thought only 6 weeks?

http://www.suss.edu.sg/programmes/Ac..._PartTime.aspx

Unless it's Term 1 and Term 2 lumped together?

THURSDAY WEEK 2 TERM 1

MONDAY WEEK 1 TERM 2
TUESDAY WEEK 1 TERM 2

The exam dates will be 2nd week wed and thursday in term 1 and first week monday and tuesday in term 2?

FOR EXAM, dont bother bout the middle part "week2 or week 1". tat part is for whether lessons start week 1 or 2 of that term. you only need care bout TERM and the DAY.

nope.. exams would be AFTER THE TWO TERMS ENDED.. For example, lets say, 13th,14 (week 1) and 18th and 19th(week 2) if based on the dates u gave me and using this coming two weeks as an example.

The week for lessons is different from exam de weeks.. exam de weeks is represented by term 1 and 2, term 1= week1 exam etc.

After the Instructional Period (14 weeks) + Self revision (2 weeks), so at the 17th and 18th weeks will be the exams?

The 17th week will be the first week of exam and 18th week will be the 2nd week of exam?
