The workload for this semester is relatively light. SAP is within my expectation, but was pleasantly surprised by my A in ST3246 as the final was really horrendous. This semester will also be the first time I'm going to use my S/U. I still can't believe I need to S/U a statistics GEM haha... maybe qualitative mod is really not my thing. After S/U, my SAP for this semester will be 4.875. Hopefully, I would be able to get a Dean's List this time.

**ST3233**
The module is taught by Dr. Alkema Leontine. She is really passionate in her teaching and very approachable for consultation. Module is not difficult, but it may take some time getting used to the various types of time series. Workload is
light with one

__take-home__mid term and a project. The only complaint I have is that she released the details for the project very late into the semester despite covering all the necessary content a few weeks prior to that. Finals was very do-able, the only challenge is probably to compete all the questions within the time limit as I overheard a few person saying that they did not have time to complete it.

**ST3246**
For some reason this module is extremely popular. I spent over 1000 bid points for the module as I'm really determined to get it because it will help me prepare for my SOA exam in February. I'm not sure why others are so keen in it tho. Perhaps, because it is only offered once every 2 years, or because of the word 'Actuarial' in it (Taking this mod, however will NOT help you break into the actuarial career if you are not intending to take the professional actuary exams).

The module is taught by A/P Lim Tiong Wee. A good lecturer and extremely patient when going through his tutorials. However the pace for tutorial can be quite slow sometimes. The workload is extremely light for this module with an average of 3/4 questions per tutorial and a total of 6 assignment questions which are a give away. The finals is, however, a completely different story. While his assignments focuses on calculations and application, his final is purely theoretical. I believe many, including me, are caught off guard by it. It also does not help that the paper is extremely difficult and I can barely do half of it.

**GEM2901**

This module is more qualitative than quantitative. Dr Chua Tin Chiu who
is also our Vice Dean, spent most of the time sharing with us his
experience as a statistics/survey consultant. Although his stories are
very interesting, it gets tiring after awhile. Workload is light, no tutorial, no mid term, only 2 very simple 800-1200 words essay.

**EC3****361**

Taught by Peter James McGee. Most of the concepts in the first half of the semester is similar to EC2101. The mid term is straight forward while finals have some challenging questions. Also, McGee like to set funny questions which often involve some extra-terrestrial beings.

Mid-Term median: 72/100

**EC3383**
One
of the worst module I have taken. Lots and lots of readings. I was caught off guard during the mid terms as I was not expecting it to test so much on readings, and got a less than desirable score. Having learnt my lesson, I spent considerable amount of time and effort going through all the boring readings to prepare for my finals, BUT NOT A SINGLE QUESTIONS ON READINGS CAME OUT. Although Alberto SALVO is an Engineer during his undergrad years, his module is highly qualitative. Will not recommend this module to those who prefer modules which are more quantitative.

Mid-Term median: 78/100

As usual, if anyone would like to have materials such as lecture notes or tutorials for any of the modules that I have taken before, you may access them through this link: NUS Modules.
