    No, as Minai said and others have said you can only do a max of 6UOC of gen eds from any single one faculty (see first post in this thread as well).

    You can't do any more gen eds from the Arts faculty (ie, JAPN1002) after you do JAPN1001 because you would have already done 6UOC from Arts.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    I'm most likely going to do JAPN2000 in S1 stage one as part of my Advanced Science degree. In Avd Sci you start GenEds in second year. Will I be able to substitute the 6UoC I did with JAPN2000 in year one session one for 6UoC of Gen Ed in year two, and do a different 6UoC course, possibly a science one (or more Japanese)? Or do you have to do your substituted course at the same time as you would have done the Gen. Ed?

    That's fine. You can do your gen ed (or JAPN2000) whenever you want as long as you have done it.

    Unhappy Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Hey,
    Does anyone know what the attendance requirements for tutorials (thinking of doing a 6unit course in the school of mathematics) are, because some of them clash with my main course lectures?
    one day, a day may come when you have to choose between what is easy and what is easier and when that year comes......remember FUNNYBUNNY

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    I just finished those geneds last week. You're meant to take only one of them for the 2 weeks.. and taking 2 of them will tax you with so much drawing (imagine doing 9 hours of drawing everyday), but I seem to manage just fine. It was a load of fun though, particularly with getting your hands dirty with charcoal for the first time ever. Definitely highly recommended.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    GENM0701 is a pretty easy - Medium Gen Ed.

    Assessment consists of:

    2 essays each worth 30% = 60% total
    Discussion Posts 20% (There are 12-13 modules in which you need to read the relevant section of the textbook, and answer the module questions (agreeing/disagreeing with other student's replies + reasons will give you extra marks in the discussion post %)
    Group Essay 20% (Focused on a bioethics topic your group chooses out of a possible 2 choices)

    The hardest marks to get are usually the 2 essays. Make sure you reference em properly, and provide good criticism, and don't aim for those 'philosophist views'. Finding relevant textbooks in the library, and borrowing their ideas (REFERENCE THEM!) is the key

    When I did it it was reading a sci fi novel and watching a sci fi movie and writing a review/diary on it with your thoughts etc. And there was this small research paper...nothing too intense.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Though Sunjet, it looks like you're a BCom and B Eco student. If that's the case, you're exempt from doing the Gen Eds.

    In a way, you're missing out on free HDs for 12 UOC though.

    All the assessment information for GENS1004 can be found on www.chem.unsw.edu.au

    Apparently you watch a movie each day and do a group presentation at the end.

    I don't believe that applies if both degrees come under the same faculty.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    I did 2 Psyc courses in my first year Psyc 1A and 1B.

    So does one of them automatically count towards a gened, or do i need to get approval. As they are Science courses would i be able to take the gened:

    HIV and Other Unconquered Infections - GENS6033


    as that sounds like a science course.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    thanks for the correction!

    Always good to be sure.

    You must obtain approval from your faculty's student centre. And not all courses can be counted as 6 UOC Gen Eds. I think its primarily Language courses.

    HIV is under the Science Faculty.

    Re: General Education (Gen Ed) FAQ

    Would you be allowed to do all 12 UOC of Gen Eds in one summer session? For example, could I complete them all during the 2009 summer session, rather than do them during the 2 main sessions?
