It is the students' responsibility to strategize and plan to finish the second major by the time they are due to graduate

I'd like to read a primary major in Statistics with a second major in Mathematics. Are there any special conditions to fulfil?

__ For students who were admitted in 2013/14 or earlier,__ you must satisfy all the following conditions:

- You may use the following five modules to count towards the graduation requirements of both majors:
- MA1101R,
- MA1102R,
- MA2108/MA2108S,
- MA2216/ST2131,
- ST2132;

- You are not allowed to use modules other than those listed above to count towards the graduation requirements of both majors;
- You must read three additional MA or ST modules at level 2000 or above, and which are not overlapping with any other modules used to satisfy the respective primary major or second major requirements. The additional MA or ST modules must belong to the elective lists of the primary major or second major.

__ For students who were admitted in 2014/2015 or later,__ you are not governed by condition (3) above, but the university rule in double counting of at most 16 MCs between primary major and second major requirements applies.

I am reading/planning to read a second major in Mathematics but it has more than 8 MCs overlap with the core modules for my first major (which is not statistics).
Am I allowed to use other modules to replace/top up?

__ For students who were admitted in 2013/14 or earlier:__

- You are only allowed to double count up to two common modules (or 8 MCs) which are essential in your primary major and which satisfies the requirement for second major in mathematics.
- If there are more than two such common modules (i.e. X), you must read an equivalent number of extra MA modules (i.e. X-2) at the same level or higher to satisfy the remaining requirement for second major in mathematics.

__ For students who were admitted in 2014/15 or later:__

- You are only allowed to double count up to four common modules (or 16 MCs) which are essential in your primary major and which satisfies the requirement for second major in mathematics.
- If there are more than four such common modules (i.e. X), you must read an equivalent number of extra MA modules (i.e. X-4) at the same level or higher to satisfy the remaining requirement for second major in mathematics.
