This website is intended for SMU student community only.

Living Analytics Research Centre (LARC) has developed the first version of a Course Recommender system aimed at providing personalised suggestions to guide students, like you, in choosing and planning your courses. One of the features of this system is the prediction of grades of courses you are considering taking up, based on data of past students’ academic performance. We would like to invite you to try out this tool by uploading your transcript and to provide us with feedback to improve this system. Thank you for your participation.
