some questions:
  • 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?
  • 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?

i forgot the answers.. please say if you know

Oh, there are certain modules that are compulsory S/U?

Mind shedding some light on it? A novice here.

e.g. http://www.eng.nus.edu.sg/undergrad/ep/iw.html

other faculties may have other modules also graded on compulsory S/U basis

Isn't that kinda bad? You'll be taking the module fully aware that you're gonna waste one of your three S/Us on it?

Depends bah. Well, I took CS1281 (2 MC module), which is compulsory S/U, so I had decided to sacrifice 1 module (4 MC) of S/U (don't think I can find another 2 MC module to fully utilize my S/U anyway).

Hmm... Till now I still haven't used my the other 10 MC of S/U yet (and I'm only left with 4 MC of ULR and 4 MC of UEM...)

Well, if it is CS/CU, then it is another matter.

usually modules with compulsory S/U grading based on the CS/CU system does not involve the 3 S/Us, so in a way, it's an added advantage.

that's why in FOS, modules like the freshmen seminar mods are so popular among the freshmen every sem.

There's no ambiguity there.

S/U and CS/CU are different things.

There are modules with compulsory S/U or CS/CU.

icic..

so compulsory S/U mod takes away from the 12MC, while a CS/CU module does not affect cap and does not use the 12MC?

Don't know man, I've only completed 1 sem so far. No Cs or Ds. To be honest, I'll be happy with 2nd upper.
in that case, i think u shouldn't S/U...save it up since u still have so many sems..
