Hey guys, I need some advice. Is it worth it to use an S/U to increase my CAP from 4.2 to 4.375? I got a B for that module. I just finished my 1st sem by the way.
If you are aiming for at least 2nd upper, then it's safe to S/U that module.
You can try SU-ing it. But do note it is just the first sem, there might be more jialat modules coming up.
hey guys I need some advice.. freshman here. should I s/u to increase my cap from 3.4 to 3.5? module grade is B-..
check out the other thread?
oh..can give example pls? i still not tt clear......

so suggest i s/u the module i got C+ for? or it will affect my CAP next time? actually hor, is B for all 4 modules quite bad? hope next sem i will do better
simply speaking (hopefully)...

ASSUMING all ur modules are 4 MCs*, each module holds the same weightage on ur CAP.
e.g. this sem u got 3.3 cos ur Bs are 3.5 and ur C+ is 2.5. --> (3.5+3.5+3.5+3.5+2.5)/5

so next sem will just be an accumulation. if u take 4 x 4MCs modules next sem... u will take all ur grades add together divided by 9.

so now if u S/U. it will be (3.5+3.5+3.5+3.5)/4 = 3.5 CAP. since it is only 4 modules... however it will have less power to influence ur CAP as compared to a 5 module semester (which has more 'weight')

or you can just delete the concept of SEMESTER when u are counting CAP cos it will confuse u.

BUT C+ shud almost surely be S/Ued.

*if u have 3 MC mods then hard to count cos the module will have 0.75 weightage as compared to a 4MC mod.
wah this thread moved pretty fast! i went out today all day to not think about my results but when i came home...ah...sad again :,( really depressed man

i intend to s/u this mod that i got B- (have not used any s/u so far) but i calculated, and i think only affect by 0.1?? somebody pls tell me if it is wise?? i am so upset with this sem cos my cap drop :/ my yr1 sem1 was crazily bad, i was hovering at 2-ish (my fault for slacking too much, didnt realise the importance. skipped lectures and play too much etc..) , and sem2 i bucked up luckily managed to pull it up to 3-ish... then now drop again..

can someone tell me if it is going to be possible to raise a cap of ard 3.2 to up to 3.6?? (from yr2 sem1) all i'm asking for is just second lower now...i think i need a miracle. pls don't drop any further... any real life cases? i need some motivation. hahaha

and my C+ for my core is biting me everywhere.i felt like crying just now!! how can this be, must be the darn bell curve. should i review? what are the chances of grade improving or even dropping as i heard there are cases of so...

sorry for this lengthy post. emo emo leh. =( i believe tonight will be a bad night for many (sobsob) and to those who did well..congrats!

any advice is appreciated. =)
totally possible to raise from 3.2 to 3.6 .

i raised my cap from low 3 ish to 4 ish.

so ya, possible.
If I have 3MC to S/U left, can I overdraft and S/U a 4MC module? If possible what are the things to take note?
Only 3 MC will count towards graduation requirements.
Some modules are compulsory S/U. Does this take up my 12MC of S/U or it doesn't? What are the things to take note?
