    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Random question, but how are the graduate fairs? Worth going to? I registered for the one in August, and I dunno if its intended for first years.

    I think I will go. I've realized in the past couple of days to "not put all my eggs in one basket"- so have an open mind esp about the private sector (which tbh, I never considered before). I just have no idea what to expect from a careers fair because I've never been to one. I don't know what companies / departments usually show up, so if anyone has been to one and can tell me more, that would be highly appreciated!

    I plan to do an internship / work experience next year, get my PACE unit out of the way lol

    You get more restricted lecture times the further you go in your degree!

    What's the pace like. Cause I've enrolled in acst101 so I will only have to do 3 subjects in year 2 semester 1. All my subjects are CT exemptions then so I thought doing 3 instead of 4 would be a better idea.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    It's definitely more intense.

    You'll probably have 3 lectures and tutorial/practicals a week. Each day is a new "week"/topic. So if you fall behind, you'll fall behind faster. For me personally though, I found then more intense timing meant I focused a lot more and meant I didn't forget concepts because we learnt them 12 weeks before. You'll also get a week or two break over Christmas and New Year's, but you'll probably have assessments due immediately upon return.

    Assignments tend to be the same as a full semester, though occasionally there was a different or easier version of an assignment due to the shorter time frame.

    If your not doing anything over summer, it's good. If you want to have a rest or work though it can be difficult to manage.

    acst101 is easy as shit. As you are doing actuary i assume you are good at maths so I'm gonna say you'll kill it.

I think I have to choose some units further on down the degree, is it possible I can pick maths? It's not explicitly in my program after year 1.

    You should be fine, if anything at times the course was very slow when I was doing it.

    You'll almost certainly get a D+, and an HD should be well in reach if you are committed.

    Legit the whole course is just rearranging annuity formulas and finding the present value of investments.
