After the course code and course title, each course description shows codes to indicate the semester, mode and location in which the course is offered (refer to the key at the right). A slash (/) between two semester codes and/or mode codes and/or location codes means that all values to the left of the slash go together, as do all values to the right. Most course descriptions will indicate what prerequisites are required before registering for the course and what percentage of the course is assigned to continuous assessment and the final examination.
