haha.. thanks a lot. juz need to clarify something again:

Does that mean I can spend my remaining 12 MCs for exemptions for any 3 of the modules only here?
Ur remaining will go to ur Unrestricted electives, any module from anywhere
It will strictly go to unrestricted electives? Can I choose the modules from the compulsory section?


If u fail and require to take ES1000, u will be required to take
ES1000->ES1102->IS2101
if u fail and required to take ES1102, then u go
ES1102->IS2101
so i assume there are two levels of failures? one is fail and another is epic fail?

if i were to take these modules, which category does its points contribute to? ULR?


CP4101 looks pretty good game man. are there many people who's taking it?

1a. Yes. For those poly soc kia, the 8 MCs refer to these 2 modules - 1 General Education Module from Group B (Humanities & Social Sciences) and one Breadth module

1b. No, Unrestricted Elective Modules (UEM) refers to any module from anywhere, including soc. You still have to do all ur complusory modules if you are not given the specific exemption granted by ur dip. So, just treat it that you have to do 3 less chapalang modules (Ur Jc counterpart have to do 3 more chapalang modules (of their choice) to grad)

2. No, you have need to do a min of 7 elective and that is it.

3. In soc, you are given the choice to do HYP (Honour year project) (like poly fyp) or to siam HYP by doing 3 more yr 4 module from the elective list in compensation for not doing fyp. So basically u have to either choose between (7 elective + HYP) or 10 elective

4. If u don't do hyp, the most 'severe' consequence is that you would not be awarded first class honours (Your degree will be capped at second uppers even if u get max cap/gpa). To get first class honour, u need to get a min cap of 4.5 AND score at least a A- in HYP (Else, Your degree will be capped at second uppers even if u get max cap/gpa).

5. CP4101 is not automatically given to students. In soc, there are only limited slots and about 90% of the project offered requires u to at least hit CAP of 4.0 (in reality, CAP 4.3-4.5) at the time of application in order for you to even stand a chance. Also, in reality, there are only average of about roughly 5 HYP project meant for IS student (Majority of the HYP project in soc are meant for CS dept student)... So, most IS student don't actually do HYP (only for those gunning for first class honours)

6. Some replanning would be necessary from my experience due to structral differences in each of the courses

7. Don't worry, the cors system, despite its misgiving, will show the correct category for the modules (provided u know how to read the module category code)

8. For the case of a IS student, it only affect IS2101 and implictly, IS3102 cos the pre-requsities for IS2101 is (pass/exempted qet or pass es1102) while pre-requsities for IS3102is (IS2103+IS2101)

If u fail qet, either ET1000-> ES1102 -> IS2101 -> IS3102 or ES1102 -> IS2101 -> IS3102

If u pass qet, IS2101 -> IS3102

ok, thanks for all your help. still got a couple more qns:


1) Do i need to finish all the compulsory modules before taking electives or i just have to look at the pre-requisites?

2) ES1102 counts towards where? I won't be taking QET due to a part time job, so if i don't pass, my IS2101 and IS3102 will have to be taken quite late liao..

Compulsory means u die die must take.. so the list are all your MUST TAKE modules, cannot escape

Do i need to finish all the compulsory modules before taking electives?
No, as long as u fufilled the pre-requistes

so i assume there are two levels of failures? one is fail and another is epic fail?
Yes, and as buaya pointed out in his post it will affect IS3102
ES1000->ES1102->IS2101->IS3102
ES1102->IS2101->IS3102
Pass = IS2101->IS3102


ES1102 counts towards where? I won't be taking QET due to a part time job, so if i don't pass, my IS2101 and IS3102 will have to be taken quite late liao..
ES1000 and ES1102 contribute ZERO mcs so it doesnt count towards anything at all, it just makes u feel beh kan,
if u epic fail ur stucked, my friend couldnt secure a place in ES1000 for 1 sem, note that the vacancy availbles are VERY LIMITED WITH ah tiongs, so dun risk or gg, u must use P points to secure ur spot in English mods, these points will be refunded to u after u pass the mod, but using 1k points + to secure a place is serious, not joking



CP4101 looks pretty good game man. are there many people who's taking it?
