Morning

I am suppose to finish my degree next year in ITM with only four modules to pass{Strategic Mangmnt 3A & 3B, COS311, COS321}. i need someone to clarify me wether i have to do java-COS214 as it appear as a compulsory module in my stream(ITM), but i did COS212 before java was introduced as a compuslory module.

And UNISA state that BSc Degree comprise of 30 modules of which if i do java i will have 31 modules on my credit/degree.

Plz somone clarify me......................

I think you would be better off phoning/emailing them and asking directly, I think if you finished the year before they changed the requirements you probably won't have to redo anything to meet the enw requirements?

Hi I had a similar problem. Basically I completed my degree on what was compulsory when I started my degree - in yourt case it will be cos212. But just contact unisa's admin dept to make double sure.

On one hand I agree - you have to keep changing your plans... but on the other hand IT is such a changing subject that universities have to change their courses to keep up with new technology. Just imagine we were all still learning Pascal (which is the language I started with in 1999 when I started my degree).

I agree with celene, The benefits of learning stuff that is relevant as opposed to outdated nonsense far outweigh any possible negative effects that subject changes might cause.
In most cases they usually give at least a years notice anyway from what I have seen...
