I'm not too sure because I'm not usually the kind who will look out for an A and scrutinize the details on how to achieve that grade, but just give it my best shot and get a passing mark at the very least. But from what I assume, it's about a 75/100 grade, which is pretty good marks that will give you a higher chance of obtaining an overall A for the module!
It will depend on how much percentage the test weighs for the module, but I feel that percentages in Semester 1 usually weigh lesser as compared to Year-End-Semester grades.
I first got the chance to visit the restaurant when I booked a deal to one of the Bintan resorts online. (i.e. Bintan Lagoon Resort, Nirwana Gardens) They usually come in a package which includes a meal at Kelong Seafood Restaurant. These deals come by often so you can just keep a lookout for them. Here's an example: http://www.deal.com.sg/deals/last-day-bintan-2d1n3d2n-stay-5-star-nirwana-resort-hotel-includes-2-way-ferry-t
I got it from a swimwear shop in Surfers' Paradise, Gold Coast Australia!
I'm not sure about that because from what I know, answers are usually found in your lecture notes. If you had a textbook for the particular module, you might want to refer to it as it will contain more content as compared to the summarized lecture notes.
I actually felt exactly the same way as you initially and was wondering if I had problems. Then I found a group of friends from another class whom I could actually clique with and all is well until today! As for the lectures, you should consult your lecturers during tutorials and consultation lessons. The tutorials will come around the end of each week and lecturers will recap what they have previously covered.
Haha! Apart from my own course mates, it's usually through camps and CCAs. Yep, majority hi-bye friends except a few whereby we still keep in close contact even after camps or stepping down from CCAs :-)
My bf didn't go for the orientation too! Don't worry, you'll still have lots of chances during your first few weeks of school, such as during lunch breaks or project work. Stay friendly and helpful!
Are you referring to your lecturer? I think you can share your feelings with your friends and get them to help you along the way if you're too afraid to approach your lecturer. However, lecturers who appear strict and unfriendly might not be the case at times. Sometimes, it's just a way of letting students know that there's still a fine line of respect you need to give them. Maybe you can try understanding your lecturer and look from a different perspective first - it might help in improving your impression of him/her :-)
Maybe you wanna try opening up to others a little more and show them that you listen more than you talk. Be friendly and participate more enthusiastically in camps and activities and widen your connections. Of course, it's important to be genuine while making new friends too!
I think it depends on the school you're in, e.g. people tend to think that students from the business school or design school are more materialistic. But my boyfriend is from business school too and he doesn't give two damns about what people think of him in the same old clothes even when they tease him from time to time. So don't worry about it unless you're really required to dress up on important days such as presentation dates. Have confidence! ^^
Depends on your timetable actually, but usually that's the case. Unless you mean the first day of orientation in school then nope it'll just be games and bonding. :-)
For BBDC, they will send the remaining balance back to your mailing address in 2 weeks' time after you've graduated from your course. You can read more here - http://www.bbdc.sg/bbweb/FAQs/PracticalRelated.aspx
Yay, congrats!! :-)
It depends on the lecturers you meet as some might not be as helpful or dedicated to their job. However, I've been blessed with many nice lecturers who are always there to guide us through our projects. I'm sure there will be a few that you'll meet to guide you along the way! Also, it's not everybody who dislikes slower team mates. It really depends on the people you meet, but the most important thing is to try to stay confident and not be too insecure. Help others, and help will come your way when you need it eventually.
Nah, you don't have to maintain talkative for 3 years. Maybe just for the orientation, try to open up more to the people around you. I usually do so especially to people whom I feel are similar to me in terms of behaviour. (i.e. I won't hang around too much with the overly enthusiastic people bcos it honestly drains my energy HAHA) Just get to know your new friends better and you'll slowly get used to their presence :-)
Hello! I think the most important thing you should do is just keep going for practice lessons. It really helps a lot as you get different tips from different instructors and familiarize yourself better with the routes you might take during your actual test. Sometimes, I write notes down to keep them fresh in my head when I take the test. An instructor also once told me not to go for practice lessons a day before the actual test, but to rest my mind and sleep early to prepare myself. Last but not least, be confident with your skills and drive safe. Good luck to you!
Yeah it will because you have to pass the respective stages which includes sub-stages (http://www.bbdc.sg/bbweb/Portals/0/class%203%20new%202.jpg) before advancing up. Not sure about what your instructor said because it didn't apply to me, unless he was referring to a private school. But sometimes, it's better to focus more on the practical training schedules than being eager to obtain the license. Safety first! :-)
Hiya! It depends on whether you went by private or sch as private students tend to advance faster as they don't necessarily follow "by the book" practical classes. I took sch (BBDC), plus I had my poly studies simultaneously and took my own sweet time, so I took about 1+ to 2 years? But I feel that as long as you study well for your theory tests, pass them quickly and not drag your practical classes, you stand a high chance of getting it by the end of the year! :-) Attend your lessons when you have the free time, and of course, drive safely. Also, before the actual final driving test, practice practice and practice! It's better to practice for a longer period of time and pass the test than having insufficient practices and having to wait another 2 months when you re-book for the test again. Hoped these tips helped!
Of course you don't know anyone yet because everyone's new to one another :-) We all started out making friends even in pri/sec sch. It's great you have an open mind and are willing to try out new subjects! Instead of just focusing on studies, you can also try out new hobbies like joining dance or photography CCAs to see where your interests lie before further advancing from there. Some of my friends ended Biz course but proceeded to pursue Arts & Media afterwards instead, so there's still a long path ahead of you - you just need to slowly find out where it leads you to and work towards it!
Many of my sec sch friends entered NP too while I landed in SP. I still made many new friends here even though I wasn't exactly sure of my selected course!
Oh, sorry to hear. Be strong, ok! Even if you don't get the chance to enter into Poly, it isn't the end to life - there are so many different paths to take and you have a bright future ahead of you :-)
Not really. Many of them are a really caring bunch that students see as friends! In fact, I find that the students are actually the ones with a results-driven mindset.
Did you get rejected for your condition? I didn't manage to get into my first choice via JAE too. After PSLE, I got rejected for my first two choices even after I tried appealing. And I still met the nicest friends at schools I end up in. :-) Getting rejected is perfectly normal! If not specified, I'd dress smart casual and just be/look confident even if I feel nervous inside.
