    Re: UNSW chit chat thread 2016

    Actually getting scared for uni. So many hours of actual uni, then all this homework + study for quizzes + online tutes + watching/reading material before lectures. And it's not going to be easy a couple of the subjects I'm doing, hence gotta really focus on those. Then I gotta work on top of it all.

    Should I stop working and focus on uni?

    Think it really depends! I found uni quite okay and in a away less stressful than high school (where you had to study to get into a course you really wanted!)

    Perhaps get a feel of uni first and see how you find it. And how valuable work is to you (e.g financial source which is essential for your family). Most people I know work once or twice a week but not everyday (unless they are on a cadetship)

    Ultimately, it's up to you! You should set aside some time for Uni work (it's all about good time management and self directed learning!)

    I know but I worked during the bridging course and got shit marks. So I don't think that will be acceptable at all during uni. But I was working crazy hours and stuff, which wouldn't happen during uni. Want to aim for 'distinction', and not just 'pass'.

    Because at the moment it's looking like, uni&work uni uni uni uni work work, then repeat. I've asked for 2 shifts max, but even then... I was a little worried when I was just considering the contact hours of uni, now I'm thinking about the rest expected of me and needed to do well.

    If you guys had 25.5 contact hours of uni (9am starts, 5 days a week), how much would you work? I don't know if they'll let me just do 1 shift.

    Re: UNSW chit chat thread 2016

    I had a similar number of contact hours in my first year and went to uni five days a week. I worked maybe 10 hours each week. There's a learning curve for most people in the first semester or so of uni so give it some time. Be good at planning. Block out time that is non-negotiable (classes, work shifts etc.) and see what you're left with.

    Do you have like 1 day where ur not working?

    Depends on how long ur shifts are. Mine are usually 4-6 hours and I do 3 shifts/week. Assumin you get paid just as much as me that should give you about 300-400/week to afford rent.
    And then as soon as holidays come just work everyday save up.

    And I usually do it after uni so I actually get days off during the week. That's when I catch up on all 4 subjects.

    Yeah I'm doing MGMT1001 but with the introduction message they say "We look forward to seeing you on the 29th of February" as opposed to the introduction to ACCT1501 where they explicitly state that tutorials will commence from week two onwards :/

    This can be checked on the my.unsw website where you can view your timetable. On that you are able to check your schedule on different weeks. I know for ECON1203 their tutorials rune bi-weekly which was shown on the timetable when i checked w3, w4, w5 etc.

    I'm not working on most weekdays when I got uni (because I got 9am starts next day). So I suppose I got arvos to study and whatever. I don't get paid that much tbh, but get pretty long shifts (8 hours usually).

    Okay maybe if I work 2 days max, I should be fine. Would love working monday arvo + 1 weekend day. So I get one whole day fully off to do whatever.
