FAQAnswer

1) I have passed some of the quizzes last semester. Do I need to do them again?

You do not need to re-do the quiz if you have passed. If you are unsure of which pre-requisite you have not completed, please check the CD Portal (under My Account > Academic).

2) I have attempted WA001/WA002/WA003 quiz three (3) times and still did not get full score, can I still go for my WA?

You are only eligible for WA after you have fulfilled all the pre-requisites.

If you have failed all three times this time round, please attempt the quiz next semester when we re-open again. Please refer to the projected timeline on Canvas to see when you can re-attempt.

3) I have passed my WA Quiz, WA001, WA002 and WA003, but CD Portal is still showing as "No".

Results for this opening period will only be mass updated on CD Portal one month after the closed deadline.

 

If you have passed last semester and result is reflected wrongly, please email CDO to double check.

4) When is the next Quiz Opening Period?

Please refer to the projected timeline uploaded on your Work Attachment Course folder on Canvas.

5) Can I attempt the quizzes next semester?

You may, so long as you are sure that you can pass before your WA commencement date.

7) I cannot find any quiz for WA004: Entrepreneurial Mindset, where is it?As mentioned above, you are supposed to attend a talk/workshop to fulfill WA004. Please keep a look out on CD Portal for the talks/workshops available or email Entrepreneurship team.
