Thanks for your prompt replies!

I already e-mailed NUS regarding this and they have responded saying that they will send the IPA letter within the week. :)

Hi,

you need to open the link that is given at the relevant undertaking sections...and go the end of the doc immediately and press the applicable button....the option are given at the end of the doc....when you press it u are automatically directed back to the page where you started before filling in the section...once you fill in the section of undertaking in the given link, it automatically puts a tick mark in the main pre-reg page also....

do try this pls...

hi aish,

log onto the URL they have mentioned in the first para under Course information and Module registration in the welcome letter they have sent on 25th June.

Before logging in, u need to check out what are the compulsory core courses u are mandated to take...then check out the time table and get it written down....u have to then opt for electives and ensure that the electives you are taking do not clash in terms of time table set out there...please ensure that if there is written exam as part of final evaluation, the same does not clash....

once you are down to 5 courses in all (totaling to 20 credits) ensure again that the time table is on a stand alone basis for all the courses....then u need to collate the module number which is given there and then go to the URL and log in with ur student number and slot out ur courses.....ensure that your personal details given there are correct.....(once u log in the details gets generated auto)

the Nu system automatically generates a mail to on the core and the electives you have opted for.....if you are from a common law background country....please send a mail to lawgradadmn (the usual mail id we use for all our correspondence so far) requesting for exemption from common law reasoning and writing and common legal system of Singapore (check the second and third para of course information and module registration of welcome letter)..usually if you send the mail in the morning....you will get the exemption mail the same day itself.....

please ensure that the same is done before 2nd july....and the site works over the weekend also for generating the system generated mail.

trust you finalise ur modules...and electives.....all the best...

Hey!

Thanks for the update...I figured the system...

But it appears that CFS guys from common law jurisdictions don't have compulsory courses...Is that correct?

Also, one needs to choose elective courses from the specialization pool totalling to 20 credits a sem right?

if you have compulsory or core course.....which am sure you would have considering that you are going in for specialisation (in my case am opting for LLM (general) for the first sem in any case), that would be included for the purpose of totalling to a credit of 20......so ideallly you would be looking at about 5 subjects of 4 crredits each ....rite...?

Yeah! But the core seems to be an 8 credit one and depends on the electives also. There r some 8 credit electives. So u could be doing only three courses for 20 credits instead of 5.

U r very much eligible for the additional baggage allowance. The Air India website clearly states "The offer is available to students starting their international journey from India and travelling on a valid student/student exchange visa". No where it is mentioned that ur classes should have started.
