    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Haha I saw some comments that the e7a roof was leaking yesterday and people were using umbrellas inside.

    I look forward to my lecturer ranting about this on Friday. He enjoys ranting about e7a and the "real world".

    I was pretty bad though, I didn't buy a permit for the entire time I attended MQ

    i got this theory one wrong about neg. interest rates, was confused between that and the right one. Tho honestly I didnt find anything about negative interest rates in the lecture and the relevant textbook chapter, but myb I didnt look hard enough in the textbook.

    Also a friendly reminder:

    This coming Sunday, March 26, 2017 is the last day to drop a unit without academic or financial penalty.

    After Sunday, you can still drop a unit, but you will incur financial penalty. The date for academic penalty (Withdrawn Fail) is not in the immediate future.

    It's not really from the slides, but rather an understanding question of how negative values work. I got stuck on that one for a bit but if you think about the equation it'll be clear.

    Explanation below
    Spoiler (rollover to view):
    The Fisher equation is i = R + P, where i = nominal interest rate.

    Rearrange to subject P (inflation rate).
    P = i - r,
    For it to be negative, i must be less than r or moreso, r has to be more than i.
    For it to be positive, i has to be more than r, or r has to be less than i (more negative).

    Assume all above values are positive.
    For the question, you can think that r and i are both negative, and use different laws to get your answer.

    Some tutors will not mark (flat out refuse actually) your attendance or homework if your not in that tute. If this is an assessment requirement (ie. Must attend 80% of tutorials or must make a legitimate attempt at 9/10 homework), then you will have an issue.

    Additionally, if the other class is full to capacity, they can ask you to leave because of OH&S requirements.

    I've seen people attend other tutorials, but generally this is with written permission from their regular tutor/lecturer/unit coordinator and is only for a single occasion where they couldn't attend their regular tutorial but could't get disruption to studies.

    I believe you can't add units after week 2 normally. I'd ask on ask.mq to see what the actual date is. We are only approaching week 4, surely you haven't had enough assessments or time to screw up yet?

    Another FYI, dropping from 4 to 3 units still means your a full time student.

    Nah didn't screw up academically. I just wanted to change a unit so I withdrew from it only to find out that it's too late to enrol in any new units and so I only have 3 units this session now. Guess I have to apply for credit over load next session.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Not gonna lie but I've had a much better first seminar experience at UTS than I did at MQ...

    Maybe it's because it's a later unit and everyone there are people who've survived law school up to fourth year, I don't know.

    Maybe it's too early to say which I like better...

    Stop that.

    I've personally found higher level subjects to be better. People seem to actually start caring about the content and doing well

    Can you take the unit over summer instead of overloading? Overloading may be difficult to get permission for after only a semester, especially with 3 units completed.

    Yea but I want to transfer to comm/law next year and 24cp is a requirement and if I do it over summer school the earliest I can transfer is next yr session 2. In a bit of a tough situation right now hahaha. But how hard would it be to receive permission for overloading with only 3 units done though?

    Well permission for overloading is at your faculty's discretion.

    If I remember correctly, you'll need at least a 3.0 GPA (on the new scale that's probably a 6.0 or distinction average) and a minimum of 1 semester full time study.

    Obviously, 6.0 after only one semester with 3 units isn't impossible, but though 3 units is technically full time, they may be hesitant about you taking on two more units on top of what you've shown to be capable of handling.

    Delaying your transfer by one semester isn't the end of the world. You can easily take summer classes and overload later in your degree when you've adjusted to University life some more.
