Exemption for IS200/201/202

I'm a diploma grad, is exemption granted automatically based on the poly grades or definitely need to seat for waiver test?

IS 200 is auto exempted if your poly GPA is high enough. I can't remember how much.

If your GPA not high enough, need to take exemption test.

IS 201/202 MUST take exemption test even if your poly GPA is 4.0.

Disclaimer, the above info is for my year, 2010. May have changed because my senior auto exempted for IS 200 and 202.

On the side note, I personally recommend you to take these 3 modules, I scored A+/A+/A which is damn easy if you remember your poly stuff.

btw, I assume your diploma is IT-related?

sorry for the late reply. Hope it's still useful to you.

IS200, a lab test, coding only. 3 questions. Loops, array list and I forgot the last one. Need to know if-else, modulus, and probably some other basic stuffs.

IS201, lab test also, coding + diagrams. Need to know how to use bat files to compile + run. Will give a library for you to use, need to know how to include the library in your bat files.

IS202, lab test again, 1 diagram + SQL queries. This is a killer for me since the most complex SQL statement I could do at that time was

select something from sometable where somecol = (select somecol from anothertable where whatever = 'apple')

Don't be disappointed if you fail IS201/202 exemption tests, their aim to make you fail because a lecturer mentioned those those are exempted from IS201 always did horribly in subsequent modules with coding
JinYuan and brokenshardz like this.
