Sa lahat ng mga magsisipagtapos na DS majors sa susunod na semestre,
tiyaking nakuha na ninyo (at may grado) ang mga sumusunod na asignatura:
-NSTP (2 asignatura)

-SSP (5 asignatura)
-AH (5 asignatura)
-PE (4 asignatura)
-core subjects
-electives (3 asignatura)
-cognates (3 asignatura)
May mga RGEP subjects na magkaiba ang code pero itinuturing na iisa
dahil halos magkapareho ang nilalaman (halimbawa, History II at History III).
Magsadya sa OCS para sa kopya ng patakaran ukol sa RGEP.
Tiyakin din na hindi labis ang cognates pero kulang naman sa electives,

Minsan inaakala ng mag-aaral na maaring cognate ang RGEP.
Marami nang nabiktima ng maling akala at maling payo ng guro.

  • free market = an excellent mechanism for balancing supply against demand. If it’s too cheap, it gets wasted, scarcity occurs and prices rise until a balance is reached.
