 Module Matters

1) I would like to read GER1000 and GEQ1000 but I can't find the module in ModReg Select Modules. What should I do?

GER1000 & GEQ1000 is pre-allocated to students according to the schedule set out by the respective Faculties. You are unable to select the module. Please refer Preallocation Guidelines for more information.


2) Am I able to choose which Semester to read the GER1000/GEQ1000?

The module is preallocated to you according to the Preallocation Guidelines set out by your faculty/department according to you Major/Programme schedule.  You are not allowed to choose the semester to read the module.  Exceptions must be cleared and approved by your faculty/ department.


3) I have recently dropped out from UTCP. Do I need to read GEQ1000?

You should receive an email from the GE committee stating whether you have fulfilled the GE requirements. If the email states that you are required to read GEQ1000, please send in an appeal to the respective mailbox with a copy of the email from the GE committee for consideration. 


4) I am from the 2015/2016 cohort, can I take GEQ1000 to fulfill the Asking Questions pillar of the GE requirement?

GEQ1000 is only offered to cohort AY2016/2017 onwards. For cohort AY15/16, your fifth GE module can be fulfilled by reading an additional module from the Human Cultures, Singapore Studies or Thinking and Expression pillar.


5) I see that there is a lecture for the module, do I need to attend the lecture?

There is no physical lecture. You only need to attend tutorials fortnightly - on Odd or Even weeks depending on the tutorial that you are assigned to.


6) I have failed/received a CU/U grade for GER1000/GEQ1000. Do I need to read the module again?

Yes. Please refer to here for details on repeat of modules. 


7) I received a D+/D grade for GER1000. Do I need to read the module again? What if I use my S/U option?

Students are not allowed to repeat modules they have received grade D or better. However, if you choose to exercise S/U option on your D+/D grade, the corresponding grade will be U (Unsatisfactory). You would then need to read the module again. Please refer to here for details on repeat of modules. 


 Tutorial Matters

1) How do I choose the tutorial slot that I want?

You have to ballot for a tutorial class. Please refer Tutorial Balloting. (For SCALE and alumni students, a tutorial group will be pre-allocated based on your study schedule.)


2) What does "odd" and "even" weeks mean?

Please refer to the NUS Academic calendar here

For GER1000 (5 tutorial sessions)

  • Odd weeks - Week 3, 5, 7, 9, 11
  • Even weeks - Week 4, 6, 8, 10, 12

For GEQ1000 (5 tutorial sessions)

  • Odd weeks - Week 3, 5, 7, 9, 11
  • Even weeks - Week 4, 6, 8, 10, 12


3) I was successfully allocated a tutorial class after the balloting round but wish to change it. How do I go about doing so?

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.


5) I was successfully allocated a GER1000/GEQ1000 tutorial at 2-4pm at FASS but I have another class at 4-6pm at FoS. Can I change my GER1000/GEQ1000 tutorial class so I can get to class in time?

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