    Anyway

    Isys302 and Isys360 - Expecting passes for both, but depending on exam results my final mark could be anything

    More confident about isys302 than 360 though.

    Econ131: 83-85 (got my final exam result back of 92 but fucked up a 25% assignment hard)
    Accg100: 70-75
    BBA102: 82-85

    This is probably gonna be the dumbest question asked but I'm a really paranoid person so bare with me hahahah. Basically for the multiple choice answer sheet I didn't put a space between my first and last name in the section where you fill out the bubbles for your name like the photo below. Please don't tell me the machine will not mark the multiple choice part or something.

    You just colour in the in bubble with the comma, it's above the a from memory. I only had to do it for eco. If you are concerned there is an error in your mark because of it you can ask for your script and submit an appeal. I'm sure they have stuff in place to make sure the computer sorts its out.

    Did you have to enter your student number as well?

    I'm fairly sure if there is an issue with the computer marking, somebody manually checks. It would be insane if someone failed simply because the computer was being stupid.

    Pretty sure I did this for the multiple choice section for an exam and I'm pretty sure that they included the multiple choice, so you should be fine.

    Don't understand why people want to do pointless easy units. Why not just pick relevant or fun units ? smh

    Because some people need GPA.

    Not that it's necessarily the best way to fish for GPA. But it works.

    May I ask if the Final was a 2 or 3 hr exam? I just found out I have an overall 96 in Math235, it was a 2 hr exam (worth 40%) and so they cut all the Gnarly Qs from the days of yore, and of course it's easier to do well. I can honestly say (apart from Physics exams) last years Math135 3 hr exam from Semester 1 was the hardest i've faced yet, I'd be interested to see what you think of it (if you have time). Congratulations though, good grades are good for the ego and actually motivate me to then re-look at content I didn't quite get or prep for future Units. Content and Understanding is the goal (if you're not money motivated )

    The exam was two hours but if you had done all of your tut q/assignment q and understood everything it was fine. I had a look and tbh it looks pretty easy. Some of it you might think are difficult upon inspection but it's not that bad and you have 3 hours. I think the main difference between math132 and math 135 is that in 132 you do more theory like the definition of a limit and various proofs, whereas in 135 you just do the questions. But just as a disclaimer, I don't actually think I'm that good at maths I just enjoy doing it/learning about it. Like I found the concept and resulting proofs of supremums and infimums very cool and then how thats built upon to develop Riemann integration and then how that approximation can be used to find the actual integral when the supremum of the lower sum is equivalent to the infimum of the upper sum. I'm rambling tho...

    Unfortunately I only do math133 next sem then that's all the maths for my degree

    Thinking about doing a postgrad tho

    Tbh I wouldnt really worry about money. Happiness and wellbeing is key, but mind you getting 80k+ for a grad salary, know some people who started at 100k+super after doing a 4 year acst course @ mq. But I think once you enter the workforce, you learn how fortunate you are to be able to study and have the opportunities to do what you do. I have the utmost respect for people in hospitality, tradies etc. they are hard jobs which often dont pay much at all. Like 50-60 hours a week is roughly 60k for a fully qualified chef. I'm just happy with my 400 bucks a week from weekend work to pay the bills. Any real money is a long waaaaay off

    On another note, I was talking to a professor and as a general rule, 2 hour exams are pretty easy (given you've done all the work etc), but 3 hour exams+ give you the extra time because they require you to think and assess stuff in different ways. For example a lot of the maths paper was very similar to assignments/tut questions, meanwhile my acst152 (introduction to actuarial) was a bit more difficult because you had to sit there and think for a few minutes.

    I'm a little unsure you read the emphasis in my post accurately?

    Re - 3 / 2 hr exams, you and the Professor have correctly regurgitated what I have experienced with the new 2 hr Math format. However, not only is there less content examined, but also the 'extension' or traditional Section B questions are dropped almost completely. The 3 hr exam info is completely misleading ; if anyone has ever done a Math or Phys 3 hour exam they will be well aware there is no "extra time", i'm surprised this Professor feels this way. Seems like they may be a little out of touch with what it is like to learn new content and then be extended in interpreting it in exam conditions.

    Anyway, congrats again. If you haven't already been emailed, I'm sure you will be invited to enrol in Math 188 or 288 and these are very interesting tasters of the post-grad world, so could be a good option if you think you may be inclined to explore that direction one day.
