CAP fell after a disappointing semester

After a disappointing semester taking 3 tough Computer Science modules, of which 2 were research-based, competing with research-oriented PhD students, my CAP score unsurprisingly fell to 4.14/5.0.

Lesson learnt is overloading myself with 3 modules for a part-time course is madness, especially when all are Computer Science modules. For the coming semester, I shall make sure I choose my major Information Systems related modules.

Yes, I will still be taking 3 modules next semester since that's what I have left anyway.

An article on Technet help solve my trouble. To stop FortiClient from starting automatically, try the following:

Run net stop fortishield on command prompt.
Run msconfig.
On msconfig, switch to the Services tab.

Switch Startup type to Manual.Restart your computer. FortiClient should not be running automatically the next time round. Hope it helps.
