NUS extends grade-free scheme for first-year students

19 May 2016 | Education

NUS will be extending its grade-free initiative beyond the first semester to allow first year students to write-off their grades for up to eight modules, close to a full year’s load. Professor Tan Eng Chye, NUS Deputy President (Academic Affairs) and Provost, shared that the grade-free initiative has proven to be a hit with first-year students. An analysis of the initiative suggests that students continued to be academically engaged, and more students are venturing beyond their academic comfort zones.
