You may do so during the Select Tutorial and the Add/Swap rounds to change your classes in ModReg, subject to availability. Details on the rounds can be found at Tutorial Balloting.
4) I requested for a swap during the Add/Swap round. How do I know if it is successful?
If ModReg does not swap your tutorial by the end of the Add/Swap round, it means your request was unsuccessful. Details on the rounds can be found at Tutorial Balloting.

For Semester 2020/21, all tutorials will be conducted via Zoom. Your Tutor will create and send you the zoom link.

There is no need to as classes end 30 minutes earlier to allow travelling time to the next class.
