    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    What subjects is everyone doing?

    Particularly interested in the others doing App Fin Prof Acg. Expecting more intense subjects. For 200s I haven't done AFIN270, ECON204, ACST201.

    Might do 3x 300-levels and 1x 200-levels rather than 2x200 & 2x300 for S1, then do my other 200s next sem. Probably do my PACE units and electives one per semester for 4th/5th year.

    Currently enrolled in ACST201, ACCG315, ACCG308, ACCG399.

    Still not sure if I should drop to 3 subjects or if its a waste of time. ACCG399 will have no Final Exam though which is nice. Hope I don't regret doing 3 ACCG subjects in a semester.

    Thought ACCG315 was a prerequsite for ACCG399?

    Did you apply for a waiver?

    Ah I thought I enrolled without issue last night. 315 is indeed a prereq for 399.

    Currently enrolled for ACST201, ACCG301, AFIN270, ACCG308 in S1 '19.

    Heard ACCG308 will be hard. Doing AFIN270 since it is a prereq for most of the finance 300 units.

    If you liked/did well in mktg101 then the advisory part of the course should be relatively easy. Don't bother watching the online videos for the advisory parts, waste of time. Do put a significant amount of effort into the advisory part homework as it forms part of the business report which is your first major assessment.


    ACCG301 is okay but is made tougher then ACCG200 due to very strict time limits for doing in class quizzes.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    So in a blaze of no publicity, MQ seem to have dropped the People / Planet requirement for anyone starting a degree this year?
    I heard from a staff member that this was the case a few weeks back but couldn't find any info. A look at this years handbooks and the requirement seems to be gone. Seems a bit sad really, being forced to do a people unit made me take a philosophy unit I never would have chose on my own volition and I really enjoyed it. I wonder what the thought process is in removing them?
    Possibly the confusion that results from the 'must not be the same faulty' / 'must not be part of your major' stuff, I'm guessing.

    But ive heard thats its good doing them as your electives because they are normally easier than other units so they can bring up your GPA. Can someone confirm this?

    If you have electives you can literally choose any unit I think (i only have one elective for my degree but), and yes most people either use GPA boosters or get a minor if they have a lot of electives. People & Planet were in a way electives, but they forced you to choose out of a certain list for both units. Im guessing they replaced them with regular elective units in this case but not sure as I havent heard anything about it

    I only came across one of my favourate units as it was a people unit which did not have a very clear name so investigated it and realised I was interested in it.

    Looks to be replaced with normal electives. Could've got my eco minor in if they did it earlier.

    Yeah I definitely agree, the requirement made me take a international relations unit which I also really enjoyed. The people/planet requirements really does fulfill its purpose of providing student with actually useful knowledge about people and our world lol.

    My experience of people planet was a let down. There were lots of errors and the content was oversimplified. Albeit, I shouldve taken stat175 in 1st year not 2nd

    It depends some come up on Monday of the first week or some may already be out. There is a way to check the due date for when iLearn should be available but can't remember the whereabouts you can check at the moment.

    Or both over complication of relativelly straight forward concepts I found with my planet unit. My people unit was a enjoyable experience.

    Check your unit guide (if it's out yet).. https://unitguides.mq.edu.au/units
    Or wait for your iLearn to become active, this can be as late as the Monday of week1 (but only if you're doing physics!), most will come active the week or weekend before uni starts - don't panic, you'll be fine, all will be made clear.
