All students are required to obtain the credits for ONE of either English 5, English 6, or English 7. Students who have failed English 5 register for this course in the sixth term of the old curriculum (i.e. the third and fourth quarters of their third academic year). This is one of the old curriculum courses offered on a semester basis.
