You should be able to deduce from the numerical value i.e. the decimals, how many subjects got added.
    Yeah I was wondering about that! Are our final course marks included in our WAM all integers? Because I'm pretty sure that my raw mark overall for micro was a decimal w/ .5, so would they just round that into the nearest integer for the WAM?

    Yes, all uploaded and reported marks are integers.

    Ah cool thank you! Also wondering if you could help me figure out how the decimal place thing works? The first time I checked my WAM it ended in .5, the second time I checked it was .333 and currently it is at .75

    If it ended in .5, 2 courses have been added (sum adds to an odd number and is divided by 2), Ending in .333 shows that 3 courses have been added and .75 shows that 4 courses have been added. Integrand has gone much more on detail regarding this topic.

    I can't guarantee it is without scaling, but I am 95% sure that it wasn't scaled. Reason being my final grade was spot on as I predicted if the course wasn't scaled, my friends likewise did as expected without scaling. Furthermore, when your overall grade for a course has been uploaded on stream declaration it almost always is final.

    That's dissappointing our quizzes and final were much harder than last year, yet last year the quizzes got scaled. Fml

    Sounds like Robert Tumarkin wasn't in charge this year, the lad was the type who probably couldn't sleep if his students did poorly.

    Re: UNSW S1/18 Result Thread

    Hey everyone! I am mathematically challenged, and have a question about the stream declaration thing. I only did three subjects this sem, and my stream dec was at .5 a few days ago. It has since jumped to .822, but I'm pretty sure that isn't accurate based on my shitty performance in the third course (and the final was on the second last day of exams so it would have been a really quick turnaround for my very slow lecturer/I think there may be double marking?)

    Is it possible for all three to have been added with it ending in .822? I thought for 3 subjects it could only end in 0.33 or 0.66. Maybe the marks aren't finalised or something?

    I also did 3 subjects this semester (econ1101, acct1501 and fins1613 which have all been released) and mine is just an integer (.0)

    Well I emailed Peter after the exam and he said the difficulty of the two semesters has been normalised. He also added that the questions we got in the finals were probably harder than Sem 2. So props to those who still managed a HD though we did it in a harder sem.

    What i heard was that if you take your wam and multiply by the number of subjects youve done you should get an integer ~ e.g. my wam ends in .636 and ive done 11 subjects (including this sem) if i multpliy .636 by 11 i get close to 7 which indicates all my subjects have been updated on stream declaration
    hopefully someone can confirm is this is true

    Yes, that's how it works, since your WAM (assuming all your subjects are worth the same UOC) will be just the average of your marks, rounded to 3 decimal places, and since your marks for every subjects are integers, their sum is also an integer (which is the average * number of subjects).

    For example, mine ends in .75 right now, and I've done a total of 13 courses, 4 of which were this semester. The only possible number of courses that have been entered are therefore 10, 11, 12 or 13.
    10 * 0.75 = 7.5
    11 * 0.75 = 8.25
    12 * 0.75 = 9
    13 * 0.75 = 9.75

    Therefore 3 (12 - 9) of my courses from this semester have been added in to my WAM so far.
