Aye, at the present I would like to read Political Science or History as my major. If my grades in NUS permit, probably a double major.

Communication and New Media sounds interesting, but I guess it all depends on how well I do for my exposure modules.

What about you?

I'm most probably making Econs my major!
I'm gonna try out pol sci & cnm in my first sem too and see if i like them. if i do well enough, i'll try a double major!

I heard that you will get your declared major as long as you pass that major's exposure modules.. Not sure how it is though. I should probably go ask some of my FASS Seniors.

potential coursemate spotted (except for econs)! :P

Well, there is a CORS bidding system where you have to bid for your modules. If you want a particular module (or that is more popular), you have to bid with higher points in order to get that module.

SMUgger is right. To declare a subject as your major, you need to do pass the exposure module of the subject.

Psychology FTW. (:

Haven't accepted the offer though, will have to soon. FASS was the one and only faculty I applied to.
