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.

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. =)

Maybe it's good to include some examples (I'll put it in code form for clarity).

Code:


SEMESTER 1
Module          Grade  MC      Points (Grade Point * MC)
CS1101C        B+      4      4  * 4 = 16
EC1301          B      4      3.5 * 4 = 14
EG1108          C+      3      2.5 * 3 = 7.5
MA1505          B      4      3.5 * 4 = 14
PC1431          B      4      3.5 * 4 = 14
 
Total Points for this Semester = 65.5
Total MCs (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed) = 19
SAP = [Total Points for this Semester] / [Total MCs (Passed + Failed)]
    = 65.5 / 19
    = 3.45 (2 dp)
 
Total Points Accumulated = 65.5
Total MCs Accumulated (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed) = 19
CAP = [Total Points Accumulated] / [Total MCs Accumulated (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed)]
    = 65.5 / 19
    = 3.45 (2 dp)
 
MCs Earned (Passed Only, Including S/U) = 19
 
 
 
SEMESTER 2
Module          Grade  MC      Points (Grade Point * MC)
CS1102C        B      5      3.5 * 5 = 17.5
EG1413          B+      4      4  * 4 = 16
MA1506          F      4      0  * 4 = 0
MLE1101        B+      4      4  * 4 = 16
PC1432          A      4      5  * 4 = 20
 
Total Points for this Semester = 69.5
Total MCs (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed) = 21
SAP = [Total Points for this Semester] / [Total MCs (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed)]
    = 69.5 / 21
    = 3.31 (2 dp)
 
Total Points Accumulated = 135
Total MCs Accumulated (Non S/U) (Passed + Failed) = 40
CAP = [Total Points Accumulated] / [Total MCs Accumulated (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed)]
    = 135 / 40
    = 3.38 (2 dp)
 
MCs Earned (Passed Only, Including S/U) = 36
 
 
 
SEMESTER 3
Module          Grade  MC      Points (Grade Point * MC)
EE2004          A-      4      4.5 * 4 = 18
EE2005          B+      4      4  * 4 = 16
GEK1505        C (S/U) 4      -
GEM2900        C+(S/U) 4      -
MA1506          C      4      2  * 4 = 8
 
 
Total Points for this Semester = 42
Total MCs (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed) = 12
SAP = [Total Points for this Semester] / [Total MCs (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed)]
    = 42 / 12
    = 3.50 (2 dp)
 
Total Points Accumulated = 177
Total MCs Accumulated (Non S/U) (Passed + Failed) = 52
CAP = [Total Points Accumulated] / [Total MCs Accumulated (Non-S/U) (Passed + Failed)]
    = 177 / 52
    = 3.40 (2 dp)
 
MCs Earned (Passed Only, Including S/U) = 56

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.
