Java Confidence Course

Java Confidence Course

Targeted at freshmen and Java amateurs, this workshop aims to familiarise students with the Java programming language and object oriented programming (OOP) concepts in the language.

This workshop also hopes to serve as a stepping stone to their data structure modules.

AY2016/17 Sem 2 Notes

In AY2016/2017 Semester 2 online module registration via CORS, students reading GEH, GES, GET and SS modules can only select a 2nd module within the same pillar/same group from Round 2B onwards, subject to availability of vacancies. Appeal is not required if you are prompted with a fail pre-requisite message when trying to select a 2nd same pillar or 2nd SS module in Round 2A, but please wait for Round 2B to select the 2nd same pillar or SS module, subject to availability of vacancies.

Students admitted in AY2016/17 and beyond (except those from RVRC) will be required to read a module from the “Asking Questions” pillar to fulfil the GE requirements. A portion of students who have completed GER1000 Quantitative Reasoning in Semester 1, AY2016/17 may be pre-allocated GEQ1000 in Semester 2, AY2016/17. All other students of Cohort AY2016/17 will be pre-allocated the “Asking Questions” module in the subsequent two semesters thereafter (in Semester 1 or 2 of AY2017/18). 

S/U related matters or Online S/U Declaration (AY2016/17 Sem 1)

Students can now refer to the S/U Home Page for useful links and information on Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) option matters. You are also strongly encouraged to familiarize yourself with the set of S/U Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) relevant to your admission cohort.

For students admitted in AY2016/17 and after, we have prepared the online ‘Guidebook to S/U Declaration Exercise for Cohort AY2016/17 and after’ to provide useful information on how to go about making your S/U declarations.

On a separate but related note, the online declaration for S/U option for current semester will be held from 20 to 22 December 2016 (by 6pm) upon the release of results for Semester 1, AY2016/17.

Should you have any queries, please email to [email protected] using your NUS email account.

Thank you.
