    Your math needs work

    Not sure where you're reading that...

    The Essential Atlas (EU/Legends) had:
    - Tatooine as a 23h day and a 304 day year
    - Coruscant as a 24h day and a 368 day year

    NuCanon revised those to:
    - Tatooine as a 34h day a 304 day year
    - Coruscant as a 24h day and a 365 day year

    You are forgiven. And its my mistake, it was not in my Atlas it was in my Saga edition core rules for the Star Wars Saga edition of the RPG series

    Also I have always thought that Coruscant always was a 24h day with a standard 365 day long year ? When did that become offical canon ?

    The history of the old EU/Legends calendar measurement is....convoluted and inconsistent to say the least. The short version:

    It was actually the SW RPG originally established that a Galactic Standard Year was a 10 month year, where each month is 7 weeks of 5 days (=35 per month x 10 = 350), plus three Fete Weeks (3x5 = 15), plus three holiday days (350+15+3 = 368). Later sources revised it to a 12 month year, but still 368 days -- but without giving any detailed breakdown on how the year works. Buuuut some writers still used the old system even after the revision (Karen Traviss used the 10 month year when writing the Republic Commando books, for instance).

    Fortunately, once the Disney reboot came along, sanity prevailed: the reference book Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know established that, in the rebooted universe, a Coruscant calendar would match an Earth calendar - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    And thank god, too, because what a pain in the ass the 10/368 was to figure out relative to other events that were being measured by the 12 month calendar!
