Red face Help out a fellow freshie here!

Hi, im an incoming freshman into FoS in AY2014/2015. are there any seniors here who can advice me on some stuff? As im quite certain i'll be declaring lie science as my major, I was doing some research on LSM mods. I understand that in Yr 1 Sem 1, we will be pre-allocated modules; either LSM1101/2 or LSM1103/4, and also CM1401. Since all 4 LSM mods are offered in both Sem 1 and 2, which mods do we take in sem 1 then? As I would want to plan out my timetable...

Also, based on your experience, what modules would you recommend us taking? Like maybe it builds up foundation for secondary years/ easier mods to do to survive in NUS.

PS: I understand we are also pre-allocated LSM210X in Yr 2, is it possible that we bid for them in Yr 1 Sem 2, provided we do LSM1101/2 in Yr 1 Sem 1?

Thanks in advance!!

Hello, just finished my 1st year and going into 2nd year so I think I'll be able to answer some of your qns (based on my year)

Firstly, all LSM110X and LSM210X mods are pre-allocated each sem, you cannot bid for them in CORS at all. You're right that in Sem 1, you will take CM1401; and either LSM1101+2 (Group A) or LSM1103+4 (Group B). Whether you are Group A or B is randomly allocated, then in Sem 2 you'll switch over. So no, you can't bid for LSM210X in Year 1 Sem 2, cause you have to do the other 2 LSM110X first. In a way, you have to complete the whole Level 1000 basket (1101-1104) in your Year 1 before advancing to Level 2000.

Your other two mods in Sem 1 will be non-life science mods, you can choose to fulfill your GEM/SS/UE/Breadth/Fac Req etc. I'd recommend taking ES1541 Exploring Science Communication through Popular Science first in your Year 1; it's a new module (just introduced in my year, we are the guinea pigs lol) which is a requirement for graduation. Cause if you're planning to go for exchange, you must read and pass ES1541 first, so better take it early So my overall Sem 1 timetable was like this: LSM1101, LSM1102, CM1401, ES1541 and a GEM mod; and Sem 2: LSM1103, LSM1104 and 3 other mods of my choice.

As for recommended modules to take, actually most of the Level 1000 and 2000 mods are already pre-allocated and are also the prerequisites for the Level 3000/4000 mods. You can choose to take the optional LSM1000 mods (LSM1202 Human Anatomy and PC1421 Physics for Life Sciences) but it's not really necessary, I took LSM1202 only because I had interest in anatomy.

Sorry that was a bit long (and maybe kinda confusing), but I hope I managed to answer some of your questions. PM me if you have any more questions! Also, do check out the Life Sciences major requirements and Study Plan for more info!

Default Lab sessions

Hi there!

Can anyone tell me if lab reports for Life Sciences have to be handed up within the session itself?

I'm planning my time-table and i'm wondering if I should schedule a tutorial right after lab with no break between. I'm worried I cannot finish the lab report and may have to stay back and will be late for my tutorial (esp when I still have to walk there)

Thanks in advance
