This program ah? : http://www.nyp.edu.sg/SIT/dit_main.html

According to this http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/undergrad...ly.html#TableA, you are exempted from: CS1010, CS1020, CS2102 and CS2105

Assuming u didn't go for/fail the ma1301 test in july or don't have the following cert: http://ww1.math.nus.edu.sg/undergrad...e=stu-1301test,

ur most likely allocated combo would be:

IS1103 (Priority to IS ppl to take 1103 first)
IS1105
MA1301 (See above) / MA1521 (If u are exempted from MA1301)
CS1231 (That is IF u are exempted from MA1301 first)
ES1102 (If u fail the upcoming QET And they allocated it to u (some are only allocated ES1102 in the 2nd sem))

If some of those mod above don't apply to u, you are free to take other mods

i know, but i would like to know what modules will likely be pre-allocated to me in my very first sem. wld appreciate it if experienced SoC seniors could share their experience with their first sem.

tks alot.
Hi bro, because of the exemption thingy and so on, a lot of poly students don't rly follow and get the typical module allocation.... The JC student, on the hand, roughly have the same module allocation cos not many are gained exempetions

I think u will be be given

MA1301
CS1020
(that is what i got last year)

I am not sure if u will be pre-allocated IS1103 and IS1105

ES1102 u are DEFINITELY going to bid because too many ppl fail qet (think ah tiongs)

i bid 4mods on my 1st sem btw i am from nyp DEI (but all 1 point de la)

first sem i wanna test water first. so i'll most likely be bidding for 1 ULR and 1 UE haha
ULR and UE not guranteed easier than core mod, depending on ur aptitude... Some of the more ULR and UE are so intensely popular that xing jiao got very slim chance to get one (When it is time for CORS, you can ask again)

Btw, u planning to do the IS program or the EC program?

Just to intro myself, I am a EC senior (one more sem to ord).

If u want to know the IS prospective, there is quite a few IS guy here. Like Mata Hippo and this fella by the nickname methylc. To a certain extent, you also can ask me cos I myself have do quite a number of IS side mod as core and UE...

hey guys i also from NYP. I have a diploma in IT.

there is really no guide for module bidding. i understand i am exempted from the 4 modules stated on the website.

however the question i would like to ask is:

assuming i am already allocated the compulsory modules (after getting my NUSNET id), how do i know which are the modules i need to take for IS year 1 so I can plan which to take in semester 1 and 2 including enrichment (or other) modules?

i can only refer to http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/undergraduates/is_is_2011_12.html .

however i do not know which are the ones i can or should take during year one including those enrichment/misc modules

i hope someone can clarify. i am sure when you first enter NUS you had the same questions as me!
