As Singapore Studies modules are cross-listed with modules offered by various departments they have to be pegged at the same level as the respective modules. Students may attempt any module they wish for Singapore Studies.
Yes. Additional Singapore Studies (SS) modules may be taken to satisfy Breadth if the SS requirement has already been satisfied and the SS Modules are outside the student's home faculty.
Please note that for FASS, only additional SS modules which are NOT cross-listed with the students' major(s) can count towards UE requirements.
The SS module that you read may be cross-listed as an exposure module. However, you may only read the module once, i.e. only as an exposure module or as a SS module. The SS module must be outside of your major.
The SS module should be outside of your major.
The allocation of modules are based on the bid points placed for the modules. If you dropped the module offered to you, there is no guarantee that you would be successful in the next bidding.
However, you should not delay too long in taking your SS module as the longer you wait, the keener the competition for the limited number of places available.
Student can declare 12 MCs as Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (taking into account the limits specified in the case of students registered in Student Exchange programmes) in any modules except those being counted towards programme, that is, faculty and major requirements..
No, Singapore Studies is not offered as a major.
Yes, you may. As long as the module is not cross-listed with a module code from your major(s), you may read the module to fulfill your Singapore Studies requirement.
Do it as soon as possible; don't wait till your final year before deciding to fulfill your SS requirement.
You will need to consult the lecturers teaching the modules or check out the IVLE website at http://ivle.nus.edu.sg
Given that there is a CA component, every module is likely to have either a mid-term test or essay or project or some combination of these.
As you are a student from Science Faculty, please proceed to your faculty's Dean's Office for advice and procedures with regards to the conversion of module codes.
