it can also mean the other way -- that your structuring misled the readers.
perhaps we can all re-take ES1102 together

It's sad that our society has churned out many kids who only care for a piece of paper and no passion for what they do. Whilsts it's true that results does open doors, it is hardly a measure of sucess. If your idea of success=$$$ then I feel sorry for you.
Take a few hours off and watch '3 idiots' or 'Jiro dreams of sushi', if life has no passion then there is no life really. We all go back into ashes some day. Good luck finding what you want to do with your life.

Choose something that is enjoyable to you, not just something that is easy. You will find that the process is more rewarding.

Whatever you learn, you may not ever use it. During work, PR + EQ more impt than modules. Choose something that can pull up CAP.

I disagree. Two things: firstly you shouldn't assume that for everyone education is a means to some end - so what if I never get to "use" whatever I learn from a module on art appreciation or history of cold war, as long as the process itself was thoroughly satisfying? And for those who do think along your way, that EQ/PR are indeed the most important qualities for work, why would CAP matter as much as you seem to imply it does anyway?

Also, the whole idea that you can look at the list of modules and somehow pinpoint some that can "pull up CAP" is quite problematic - For modules with more than 30 students (which are >90% of the modules for which non-majors are eligible anyway) you have to stay on the right side of the bell curve to do "well". If the content is easy, you need to score higher to do well. The converse is true if it's hard. Now, neither of the 2 cases seems to stand out for people who want to "pull up CAP". Perhaps you'll say "avoid modules with a lot of ATs, don't take modules that are hardcore, etc. etc." but statements like this are usually of little relevance or based on nameless and dubious x-th hand sources. There's 0 AT in the course EN3248, but that isn't in any way suggestive of it being "easier" (or "more difficult") than another course with 80% ATs. Claims like these are highly speculative, subjective and hardly take into account personal preferences, abilities and orientations. You won't be able to find any objective and meaningful criterion with which you can appraise whether a particular module is likely to pull your CAP up.

Tl;dr version - Take whatever you like. Sitting down and trying to identify modules that are easier to score is nothing more than a fruitless exercise that wastes time. Just my 2c.

PR + EQ more important? Then try doing jobs that requires technical expertise like computing / engineering and end up with no skills, see who will hire you..
