Order of Preference

The top options selected that FIT will be used, in order of preference - order chosen, (ie: top choice first, next choice second, etc).

 

Fit

  • When course selections are all entered, some courses will not have sufficient students to run and will be folded, then the next suitable choice is used

  • If a student cannot take one of the options selected then the next suitable choice will be used

  • If a student has made incompatible choices then the lowest choice will be removed and the next suitable choice will be used eg: too many vocational courses (without arrangement with CSE) for seniors, or if two courses that cannot be taken together such as HPE11 and HPS11, or more than two electives from one subject area for juniors, etc
