Quick one.
I've read the other threads on 98806 by searching on the forum and cannot seem to find the answer hence asking now.

Can I do any 3 modules in 1st year for 36 credits , then do any 4 modules in 2nd year for 48 credits , then do any 4 modules in 3rd year for the other 48 credits ?

Or

Must I do ALL the courses to finish a year as per table below.

From your second year of study, you need to pass a minimum of 48 credits (4 modules) per year/over two consecutive semesters. If you don’t, you won’t be allowed to study further at undergraduate level, unless you complete a one-year certificate programme (NQF level 5) from an accredited university after the year of exclusion.

You need to do all the modules listed in order to complete the course.

The credits policy you quote only specifies that you have to attain at least that many credits per year in order to be allowed to continue studying. If you register for 5 modules in your first year, you have to pass at least three of them.

You need to finish ALL modules listed. And pass a minimum of 3 a year. You may take a second year module in your first year as long as the dependencies are met. So you can do this in the recommended 3 years or take your time and do it in 6, your choice.

There's no way in hell it's ever recommended to do a 3 year degree/diploma in 3 years by correspondence.
It's a 3 year FULL TIME course.
Depending on your work load and aptitude, I would say 3 or 4 modules per semester is where you want to be. I did 5 second level modules last semester, it was a bit too much.

I did my BSc Inf degree in 3 years while working full-time. It was manageable, but it was rough. Definitely not recommended for most people.

As above, do 3 a semester and life will be relatively easy. 4 would be tough, especially for those modules with hectic assignements

Doing this diploma in three years, while working at the same time can be done. I did it.
But then you need to either work really hard or have lots of it experience already (myself programming for more than 10 years - Delphi)

For a person still wanting a personal life or with less or little working experience, I would suggest 4 first year modules to start with, you can from there increase or decrease as needed, but start with too little, and you might feel like you have wasted some time. If you have some IT knowledge/experience I would suggest 5 modules for your first year modules per semester. These are the easy modules... the third year modules takes up more time...

Keep an eye on the exam dates when you choose your modules, writing 4 modules in 4 days really sucks
Also that EUP thing is such a breeze...

I think what is important is to do semester 1 and semester 2 in 1 calendar year.
What I initially did was register for 5 modules in semester 2 of 2013 , I then failed 2 and wrote one late (aegrotat exam) now in June 2014 which I passed.
So now I am registered for 2nd semester 2014 for 3 subjects.

Now the question is , the modules I failed , do I have to retake them in order to fulfill doing all 10 modules before going to the actual 2nd year of study ?
Would I take them in 1st semester 2015 and then do the balance of the modules with them or do it over 2 semesters in 2015 ?

Are they pre-requisites? You can't register for new modules if you don't meet the pre-requisites.

Bopman, you rock for this (Steals entire post)

You have me worried about ICT2622 now, doing it this semester

Reply

Sinbad 01:49 PM 14-07-2014

I didn't find ICT2622 hard. I barely did any work and got 69% IIRC



//I lied. 58%

Still not hard. I was just super lazy last semester, and also did 5 modules

Reply

DrewChan 01:57 PM 14-07-2014

I've been averaging 60% with minimal work, I'm probably going to have to step up the effort. Especially if I want to go for btech.

Only took 3 subjects this semester

ICT2611
ICT2622
ICT1532

fismail 05:23 PM 14-07-2014

ICT1532 is easy.
for me I think I under-estimated the amount of work to be done and did not focus too much.
when exam time came I was like uh-oh.
