(ii) Reading Week also addresses the need to synchronise the end-of-classes timing between Yale-NUS College and NUS, so as to avoid inconveniencing students enrolled in modules at either institution. (iii) For modules that do not involve a final examination, the Reading Week can be used for supplementary or make-up activity, provided the instructor is mindful of (i) and (ii) above.
