SLIIT : Attention First Year Students - 1 semester

This post is specially for Newcomers and First year students @ SLIIT

Don't be lazy in your first year, it's the easiest year you will get a Scholarships full or partial according to Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.5 or more out of 4.0
Full Scholarships - 3.8
Half Scholarships - 3.5

Getting a Scholarships is really easy than you think, I was too lazy and missed my chance :(

Here are the secrets:

1) Do your midterm really well.

2) Let' see what we got in Year 1,
    Semester 1 Subjects

Introduction to Programming Environments (C++ / UNIX) - IPE
This subject is really important for your future studies.
Get the basics right and you'll be a great programmer in later years.
Never cut practicals for this subject - I mean never never

Information Systems - IS
From the book.
Really easy.
Do some past papers and you'll be fine.

Computer Fundamentals - CF
From the book.
Get the binary, memory and gates stuff right.
Do past papers.

Mathematics for Information Technology - MIT
The pattern is always the same, practice some past papers (if you have done maths in A/L, this would really easy)

Technical Communication - TC
Easiest of all subject, If you have a sound knowledge in English you'll be fine.

3) Do at least 3 years of past paper before the exam.

4) Teach your friends about what you know.

If you need more help on subjects please feel free to send me a mail to

Good Luck

Tomorrow I will discus about year 1 - semester 2
