Monday 7 March 2016 (week 2):

Changing your timetable (enrolled lab/tutorial)

Before you request to change labs, please note that:

  • The full list of available labs is on the course timetable
  • Your request is only approved when you have received a reply email confirming the lab change. Until then, you have still not yet enrolled in the new lab.
  • You may only change the lab that you are enrolled in only once during the semester - please choose carefully
  • Your enrolled lab cannot be changed for a lab exam once the previous weekend has begun (but your enrolled lab will change after the lab exam)
  • Some students will drop out of the course during later weeks, especially weeks 2-3, which will free up more seats
  • Requests will be handled in the order that they are received, with priority given to requests received earlier, and to correct requests (see below)
  • We will try to satisfy every request, but this may not always be possible since some labs are full
  • If your request cannot be satisfied now, we will keep it in a queue, and in case some spaces frees up later, then we will satisfy your request when it is possible; we will email you when this occurs
If you would like to change the lab (same as tutorial) that you are enrolled in, follow these instructions exactly (requests that do not satisfy these instructions will be given lower priority):

  • Write an email to
  • For the email subject, type "Request to change lab"
  • In the body of the email, type each of the following on separate lines:
    • Your full name, with your family name all in CAPITAL LETTERS (e.g. "Jason CHAN")
    • Your student ID number (e.g. "321456789")
    • Your unikey (e.g. "jcha1234")
    • The time and day of the lab that you wish to move to (e.g. "10-12 Friday")
    • If you wish to move to a particular room (optional), give the room name (e.g. "SIT 115"); if you don't mind which room, then leave this blank
    • If you wish to move to a particular room (optional), give the lab name, which you can find on the course timetable (e.g. "Lab F10A"); if you don't mind which room, then leave this blank
  • Do not write anything else in the email, unless it is information related to the request. Reasons for your request are not required.
For example, if you want a lab in a particular room, then the body of your email may look like this:
Jason CHAN
321456789
jcha1234
10-12 Friday
SIT 115
Lab F10A
or if you don't mind which particular room (which increases the chance of getting your request satisfied), then it may look like this:
Jason CHAN
321456789
jcha1234
10-12 Friday
