Students who were admitted directly to read primary major in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics with second major in Management:

  • BSP1703 Managerial Economics and DSC1704 Decision Analytics will be pre-allocated in Semester 2 of Year 1 of their candidature.
  • Both modules will only be pre-allocated once. If students drop any of them after pre-allocation, they will have to bid for the module/s regardless of the reasons for dropping.
