Name. A subject requires a meaningful name. For example, Piano for Kids.

Subject Code. A shortcode for the Subject is defined with a predefined pattern.

Type. A Type has three values; they are Theory, Practical, and, both.

Subject Type. A subject Type can be used to define to be either Compulsory or Elective.

Grade Weightage. This will be a value to scale the Grade.

Parent Subject. We can assign another subject to be treated as a parent subject. This is optional.

Information! It is a best practice to follow a standard coding system to keep consistent definitions. A code also helps to easily identify the subject.
