In Singapore, courses are called modules. As I mentioned before, I was enrolled in four modules. I'm talking about their examination approaches first.
CM3212, i.e. Transition Metal Chemistry is a Junior undergraduate course.
In fact, as the "CM" represents Dept. of Chem., the first number following "CM" means the grade of this course:
1: Freshman, 2: Sophomore, 3: Junior, 4: Senior
This course was taught by 2 teachers, Chan Sau Han, Edith and Chui Sin Yin, Stephen. The first half contains 3 sections: Coordination Chemistry, Spectroscopy, and Kinetics, taught by Edith Chan S. H.. The second half, however, taught by Stephen Chui S. Y., doesn't have a clear structure like Edith's. It contains 10 lectures, all talking about selected topics of TMC.
2 examinations were conducted until now. The first examination is the so called "Mid-term". It seems that all 3 sections taught by Edith Chan shall be tested, but not. This "Mid-term" only covered Section 1: Coordination Chemistry. Both Spectroscopy and Kinetics were left to the Final.
Stephen Chui conducted an exam, called CA2, abbr. of continuous assessment, which covered the first 5 lectures of his part: MS, Supramolecules, TM Photochemistry, and POM(polyoxometalates).
So it is clear that what will be covered in the Final are: Spectroscopy, Kinetics, and last 5 lectures of Stephen Chui, to be accurate: TMO(transition metal oxides) and MOF(metal organic framework).
