In all Faculties, students must earn a minimum number of modular credits at various levels of study to graduate.
Students must read and pass a maximum of 40 modular credits of Level 1000 modules. This is to ensure, especially in taking breadth modules, that students take modules from different levels of studies.
For students who have accumulated more than 40 modular credits of Level 1000 modules, the extra modular credits will not be counted towards the modular credit requirement for graduation. They, however, will count towards the grade point average (GPA) and cumulative grade point average (cGPA) calculations.
Students are not encouraged to take a breadth module in their declared major. If, however, for students who do so, the accumulated modular credits will not be counted towards the modular credit requirement for graduation. They, however, will count towards the GPA and cGPA calculations.
For single major, students are expected to pass a minimum of 24 modular credits of Level 4000 modules in their major subject (They are some variations to this requirement for the different programmes. Please refer to the relevant programme regulations).
In some Faculties, students may be allowed, in lieu of their Level 4000 modules, to read a maximum of 8 modular credits of Level 5000 modules (subject to Programme approval and module prerequisites, if any).
The rest of the Level requirements can be read at either Level 2000 or Level 3000 modules.
Students are free to choose modules from different levels of study (except for modules with prerequisites) in any one semester. With the flexibility, however, comes responsibility. Students are strongly advised to consult their GenNEXT Coordinator, Programme Leaders or Academic Advisors before signing up for modules.
It is also important to emphasize that in selecting modules, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that there are no time-table and examination clashes. Students cannot sign up for modules where there is a time-table clash for lectures or an examination clash. Students are strongly advised
