Intro to ModReg@EduRec

ModReg@EduRec is the new consolidated module registration platform that replaces OurCORS with effect from July 2019. Please refer to the ModReg User Guide for Students to navigate the system. You may also contact Yale-NUS Registry if you have any questions.

Rule-Driven, Priority-based Allocation

ModReg@EduRec employs a rules-driven, priority-based engine to allocate modules based on each student’s curricular needs, seniority in the programme and module preferences. 

  • Rules-Driven: Curricular Needs
    This rule ensures priority is given to students who need a particular module to fulfil the curricular needs (eg. Major and Minor requirements etc). Please log on to myEduRec and generate the ‘My Graduation Audit’ report. This report provides an overview of your eligibility to graduate based on the academic plans declared, and modules that you have passed. Please refer here for the user guides.
  • Priority-Based: Student Seniority
    This rule ensures priority is assigned to students based on their year of study (eg. Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4) since senior students have a more limited time than junior students in securing modules before graduating.
  • Priority-Based: Module Preferences
    In ModReg, students will be required to rank the modules they have selected in the order of their preference. This rule recognises that one student’s desire for a module may be different from another. Hence, priority is accorded to the student who ranks a module higher than another.

Priority Score is computed for each module selected by students based on the above factors.

Priority Score

Where demand for a selected module exceeds the available places, the Priority Scores of students seeking to read a particular module will be used to determine module allocation.

The Priority Score for a module selected by a student is computed based on the Priority Scoring Rubrics as follows:

Programme Requirements Category (in descending order of points) – An

  • UTown/USP modules
  • Major core and 1st Major 1st Specialisation modules
  • 1st Major modules
  • 2nd Major Specialisation modules
  • Faculty Requirement modules
  • 2nd Major modules
  • Restricted/Direct Minor modules
  • Unrestricted Elective/General Education modules
    *Only those that are highlighted in blue are applicable to Yale-NUS students.

Students’ Seniority (in descending order of points) – Bn

  • Year 4
  • Year 3
  • Year 2
  • Year 1

Rank Preference of Modules (in descending order of points) – Cn

  • Rank 1
  • Rank 2
  • Rank 3
  • Rank 4
  • Rank 5
  • Rank 6
  • Rank 7
  • Rank 8

Priority Score of module(s) = An x Bn x Cn

When students have the same Priority Score for a module and the demand exceeds the places available, tie-breakers are used to determine the final module allocation. The tie-breakers in descending order of consideration are:

  • Students who have not attained minimum workload
  • Student’s home faculty is module host faculty (Eg. If there are NUS students applying for Yale-NUS modules, priority will be given to Yale-NUS students)
  • Remnant CORS points (applicable to NUS modules for AY2019/2020 only)
  • Module feedback points (applicable to NUS modules only)
  • Random balloting

The above information is adapted from NUS ModReg website

Round 1 Instructions

In this round, you can:

  1. Select Yale-NUS modules via ModReg@EduRec. Please refer to Module Brief for a list of Yale-NUS offerings.
  2. Select NUS Centre for Language Studies (CLS) modules.
  • Students who are interested in beginning level CLS modules and students who have taken a CLS module and progressing to the next level, please login to Canvas (active during Round 1) and submit your request. This link will be open from Monday, 11 November 2019, 0900 hrs to Wednesday, 13 November 2019, 1200 hrs (noon).
  • Please refer here for CLS timetable for Semester 2 AY2019/2020.
  • Successful applicants will be pre-allocated with the CLS module and the outcome will be available at ModReg@EduRec when Round 2 opens. If the pre-allocation is unsuccessful, you may register directly via ModReg@EduRec when Round 2 opens.
  • For modules with multiple tutorial class options, you will only be pre-allocated with the main lecture class. You will need to select your tutorial class via ModReg@EduRec in January 2020 according to the ‘Select Tutorial’ schedule that will be published on NUS ModReg website.

Note:

  • Students who are interested in registering for CLS 2000 level and above modules but do not meet the prerequisites are required to register for a placement test. You may look out for the notice of placement tests posted on the CLS website or contact the CLS General Office directly. After you have completed the placement test, you will be notified of the outcome by CLS. Accordingly, you will register via ModReg@EduRec during Round 2 or Round 3 depending on when you have completed the placement test.
  • Students who are interested in registering for other NUS (non-language) elective modules will do so via ModReg@EduRec from Round 2 onwards. Please refer here for the list of NUS elective modules that are to be offered in Semester 2 of AY2019/2020.
  • Students reading NUS modules are subject to NUS policy and guidelines governing these modules.

Instructions:

  1. Timetable Planning: You should register for modules that do not clash with your class and exam timetables. You may use the NUSMods timetable builder to simulate your desired timetable before selecting your modules via ModReg@EduRec.
  2. Overload: The recommended workload is 20 MC per semester. However, students may register between 18 MC to 22 MC per semester. This workload includes Common Curriculum modules, Yale-NUS modules, NUS modules and/or NUS CLS modules. By default, ModReg@EduRec allows you to select modules up to a maximum of 22 MC. If you intend to overload beyond 22 MC in the semester, you are required to seek approval from your Assistant Dean of Students (AD). Although you may apply for an overload with your AD during Round 1 and Round 2, for equity reasons, you will only be able to select the additional Yale-NUS or NUS elective module during Round 3 if your AD approves of your overload.
    Note for NUS CLS modules: If you register for more than 18 MC of Yale-NUS modules in Round 1, you will not be pre-allocated the CLS module. Instead, you may drop an allocated module and register for the CLS module via ModReg@EduRec during Round 2 or Round 3.
    Overload for LAW Double Degree Programme (DDP) students: Please refer here for the overload policy for Law DDP students. An overload for a Law DDP student in a semester would be defined as any module taken in excess of what is stated in your respective schedule of modules found here. If you register for more than the required number of MC of Yale-NUS modules in Round 1, Faculty of Law will not be able to pre-allocate the Law modules subsequently. Yale-NUS Registry will drop your excess Yale-NUS module(s) and you will need to re-select your overload modules in Round 2 and Round 3. Law DDP students who have completed their Pro Bono requirements are required to contact the NUS Pro Bono Office to update their completion status to avoid unnecessary timetable clashes.
  3. Underload: You are advised to plan carefully as underloading may affect your graduation progress and ability to complete your degree within the stipulated candidature period. All students are required to register at least 18 MC of workload in a semester. If you intend to underload in the semester, you are required to appeal to your AD with supporting reasons. However, enrolling in less than 14 MC requires a petition to Committee on Academic Standards (CAS). The petition should be submitted well in advance of the “Add” module deadline so that you are still in time to add a module in the event that your appeal is unsuccessful. Students who are in their graduating semester are allowed to register a minimum of 14 MC without the AD’s permission as long as they are on-track to meet graduation requirements.
  4. Common Curriculum Modules (compulsory for students from Class of 2023): Students are to select the following modules and one other elective module.
    a) YCC1112 Literature & Humanities 2 (Select either Group “A” or “B” only in ModReg@EduRec. Group A: Tue, Fri from 1030-1200hrs & Tue 0930-1030hrs; Group B: Tue, Fri from 1430-1600hrs & Tue 0930-1030hrs). In addition to selecting your preferred group timing (e.g. Group A) in your “Main List”, you should also indicate the other timing (e.g. Group B) on your “Reserved List” if this timing does not clash with the timetable of your other “Main List” or “Reserve List” electives modules.
    b) YCC1114 Philosophy and Political Thought 2 (Select either Group “A” or “B” only in ModReg@EduRec. Group A: Mon, Thu from 1300-1430hrs & Mon 0930-1030hrs; Group B: Mon, Thu from 1600-1730hrs & Mon 0930-1030hrs). In addition to selecting your preferred group timing (e.g. Group A) in your “Main List”, you should also indicate the other timing (e.g. Group B) on your “Reserved List” if this timing does not clash with the timetable of your other “Main List” or “Reserve List” electives modules.
    c) YCC1131 Scientific Inquiry 1 (Select either Group “A” or “B” only in ModReg@EduRec. Group A: Tue, Fri from 1300-1430hrs & Mon 1100-1200hrs; Group B: Tue, Fri from 1600-1730hrs & Mon 1100-1200hrs). In addition to selecting your preferred group timing (e.g. Group A) in your “Main List”, you should also indicate the other timing (e.g. Group B) on your “Reserved List” if this timing does not clash with the timetable of your other “Main List” or “Reserve List” electives modules.
    d) Do note that you may be re-allocated to another timing if the timing that you have selected becomes over-subscribed.
