just checked with SIM admissions offfice.....been accepted into the course....
just that i will only be exempted for half of the 1st year, meaning i still have take these 3 modules:
1.algorithms & problem solving
2.Procedural pregramming
3. object oriented programming

I can choose not to take these 3 modules but i have to take a test and pass by 65% in oreder to be exempted.....
guess i'm not taking the test.......

I'm also slated for the October PT course (suppose to be July, but not enough people for PT)

anyway i'm prepared to switch to BIT cos don wanna wait again, and true enough I just called SIM and they said not enough people, but I'll be getting the offer letter for Jan PT - which is suppose to mean confirm start PT class in Jan. Reason they gave was they will have enough people to start for january as the 2nd year PT students will be moving up to 3rd year. Sounds logical enough to me.

But now I am left with dilemma as on one hand i was prepared to switch course as I didn't want to wait, on the other hand... another 3 months of waiting and can do DSS sounds pretty enticing...

choices choices....

Hey elf108 u also in BIT program ?? hihi.. Are any of u guys having second thoughts of joining UniSim's BICT with honors?? Im having second thoughts now.. Which 1 do u guys suggest would be a "more recognised" degree(meaning I will be more "employable" in public n private sector ) ?

I called SIM bout this issue and they said that MOE doesnt have a list of recognised degrees but UOW is the more "popular" choice in IT industry(their exact words)....The difference between the 2 degrees ?.. the person said she doesnt have the info on Unisim BICT adn added that unisim needed 2 yrs work exp n above 21 years old... -.-... Any1 has info of higher studies(masters) or certificates(CCNA etc.) after this BIT program??

Why so many ??????.....BIT is DL degree loh.....UniSim degrees are all local degrees for adults (21 and above)...How to judge Popular...in terms of certs maybe unisim is too new but is recognise by Spore empolyees...UOW in another hand is recognise world wide (Usa.....) despite it is a aus cert..but for Spore too many grads liao ......It is up to You guys who wana take UOW or Unisim.......Do some research......UOW more popular in IT industry???Can compare to local Grads????

maybe can take a look at this website:

http://www.contactsingapore.org.sg/f...iversity.shtml

it states that UOW is one of the recommended universities for the "Computing and Information Technology" discipline
