Each study-unit offered by the Department of Statistics and OR is given a tag with the template “SORabcd”, which can be deciphered as follows:


SOR stands for the Department of Statistics and Operations Research.


For the B.Sc. Hons. Course

a - unit level code
study-units for students choosing Statistics & Operations Research as a major subject or for science students who may need advanced study-units in statistics. For these units we have the convention that the unit level code a will correspond to the year when a statistics & OR student would take the unit:

  • a = 1 – units which students may select during their first year
  • a = 2 – units which students may select during their second year
  • a = 3 – units which students may select during their third and fourth year*
  • a = 5 – onwards for postgraduate units

b - subject code
  • 1 - Probability
  • 2 - Statistics
  • 3 - Operations Research
  • 4 - Financial and Actuarial Mathematics

cspecific unit code
specific number given to the unit within its subject and level range

dunit sublevel code
study-units for students choosing Statistics & Operations Research as a major subject or for science students who may need advanced study-units in statistics.
  • d = 0 – units intended for students in the first, second and third years.
  • d = 1 – units intended for students in the fourth year

Furthermore study-units which need to be broken down into smaller sub-units have a unit sublevel code of 8 or 9
  • d = 8 – for 1st semester
  • d = 9 – for 2nd semester


For Servicing Study-Units

a - unit level code
study-units available for students from other departments/faculties who use statistics primarily as a tool and units of this type have a unit level code of 0 or 1
  • a = 0 - applies to units intended for students with limited mathematical background not exceeding that at Ordinary Level
  • a = 1 - applies to units intended for students with Advanced Level Mathematics which require topics in Statistics or Operations Research as a tool rather than an object of direct study

b - subject code
  • 1 - Probability
  • 2 - Statistics
  • 3 - Operations Research
  • 4 - Financial and Actuarial Mathematics

cspecific unit code
specific number given to the unit within its subject and level range

dunit sublevel code
study-units available for students from other departments/faculties who use statistics primarily as a tool and units of this type have a unit sublevel code of 0 or 1
  • d = 0 – will apply to units intended for students with limited mathematical background not exceeding that at Ordinary Level
  • d = 1 – will apply to units intended for students with Advanced Level Mathematics which require topics in Statistics or Operations Research as a tool rather than an object of direct study

* - For study programmes which started from October 2003 onwards, value 3 will be used for both the third and fourth years.  They will be distinguished by the sublevel code d.

† - Applies only to course programmes which started from October 2003 onwards.
