FST Course Timetable Clashes

If you are choosing courses, it is advised that you choose those courses that will minimize clashes to your timetable.

Please note that it is not possible to get a clash free timetable, and so the current timetable includes certain permitted clashes, which are:

  • Pre Science Courses and advanced level courses (Levels II & III).
  • First year (Level I) and advanced level courses (Levels II & III).
  • Certain Level II & Level III courses.
  • Courses and their prerequisites.
  • Courses with many streams for its lectures, tutorials, labs or field trips.  For example, a course running the same lectures twice each week is considered to have 2 streams of lectures.
  • Electives.
  • Least popular combination of courses.

It is advised that for the first week of each semester you confirm the schedules for the courses you are interested in.  This can be done by either viewing the latest timetable online or on the respective departments’ notice boards, the latter of which will only be available up to the end of the first teaching week, thereafter only the online timetable should be referred to, due to updates.

If you will be taking a course that has many groups, (streams) for lectures, then such a course will have one of, (G1), (G2), etc. at the end of its course code – you will be allocated to one of these groups by the respective department. To determine which group you are in, kindly check the relevant department.

Similarly, a course with many tutorial streams will have one of, (T1), (T2), etc. at the end of its course code – you will be allocated to one of these tutorial streams.

Also, a course with many lab streams will have one of, (L1), (L2), etc. at the end of its course code - you will be allocated to one of these lab streams, similarly for field trips, with one of, (F1), (F2), etc. being used in this case.

For a course with many lecture groups, in which each group has many streams for tutorials, labs or field trips, then a combination of the terminologies previously defined will be found at the end of its course code, for example, (G2 T1), (G1 L3), etc ., one of which you should be assigned to.
