    Re: The UNSW Scaling Thread

    How's the scaling with MATH2931 (Higher Linear Models) with Libo Li as the lecturer?

    Does anyone have past papers?

    Re: The UNSW Scaling Thread

    There's generally no scaling at all for all courses.

    The course convener will decide how easily/harshly they will set the marking rubric, and that will effectively 'scale' your mark.

    Should always assume there's no scaling.

    100% agree here

    i think i posted here a few months back in this thread trying to make it clear. Over 4 years, i think 2 subjects had scaling (small amount of marks too) and it's a common misconception that fresh hsc kids bring into uni.

    Re: The UNSW Scaling Thread

    ACTL2102 - Midterm was scaled to a CR average but nothing else was scaled.

    FINS3616 (S2 2016) - Only the finals was scaled up by 8 marks to make up for having no partial marks (even for the short answer calculations). Nothing else was scaled. Please note this was the first time the LIC took charge of this course, past semester 2s had no scaling according to the previous LIC. I heard that in S1 there is no scaling for this subject as well.

    Re: The UNSW Scaling Thread

    Hey fam, I've got an interesting subject with weird scaling.

    So it's one of my second year elec subjects, and lots of ppl got lower marks than expected to different extents. Only a few are cool with the mark.

    These are the possible things I could think of that the lecturer has done to the marks, but idk which of them actually happened.
    1) The marking was very harsh. The lecturer was expecting very detailed answers and put heavy penalties on errors.
    2) The course marks have been scaled down.
    3) The percentage of the assessment items has been adjusted (i.e. different from what is indicated in the course outline).
    4) The lecturer just took our midterm exam marks as the final marks (many ppl's marks are so close to or exactly the same as the midterm marks).

    Backgrounds:
    The course is relatively easy among all elec courses in terms of contents. Some of the assessments during the semester have already been made harder to suppress the marks. The final exam was standard and reasonable, with first half of the questions being straightforward and the second half being harder, and half of the cohort think it was easy while the other half think it was hard.

    The final exam weighs 50% of the course. Some ppl who had got around 45/50 pre-exam ended up with PS or low CR, which means they've got less than 25/50 (50/100) in the final exam assuming no scaling. It is possible that the pass mark of the final is < 50, but I don't think they could lose that much in the exam.

    I'm also doubting the motivations behind scaling down. Although the contents is easy, our final was not, and some ppl even had to skip 1 or 2 questions. Even so, most of us got further lower, pretty much like HD->DN, DN->CR or even PS. Btw, I don't think there would be many HDs even if it's not scaled, so it's really confusing why he did that.

    Re: The UNSW Scaling Thread

    Latest:
    ECON1101 - raw mark or scale-down

    ELEC2133 - raw mark this year (the final was easier than past years')
    ELEC2134 - raw mark or scale-down in summer term, raw mark or some scale-up in semester 1
    ELEC2141 - crazy scale-up, final was AIDs
    ELEC2142 - tfw everyone thinks there's at least some scale-down but the lecturer says there has been scale-up :'(
    ELEC3104 - raw mark in top range

    MATH2069 - some scale-down
    MATH2099 - some scale-up
    MATH3411 - raw mark

    They're very likely to change, so take them as reference only. Generally it depends on the difficulty of the exam but for easy courses like ECON1101 they always want to control the marks.
