    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    I got the email on 28/03 (today) 3:45 pm last year. So idk we shall see. Tbh it's not that special, it just looks good on your transcript. It's not the same as being a merit scholar. Btw uni is very peaceful at 6am. Don't enjoy it from 10am-2pm. Too many people.

    Maybe you should petition for more extremely early classes or do more night classes if possible?

    The NSW Ministry of Health has informed Macquarie University that a person who was at the University on Wednesday 3 April and Thursday 4 April has been diagnosed with measles.

    If they do a lot of companies do not mind vacationers leaving a week or so to go on the exchange. But they probably won't cross over.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    What time are evening classes usually on?

    Also, if there's only a day class option for a unit, are teachers flexible at all if you work full-time? Specifically looking at Business Analytics classes.

    Appreciate any help on this, thanks.

    Will vary depending on units how flexible they are. Later units in the degree (and for some degrees even in the first year) often have evening tutorials available. As most lectures are recorded/non-compulsory to attend then you are likely only to have to worry about scheduling tutorials.

    Also, graduation hoods on the gowns seem to choke similarly to ties.
