    Actl2111, Actl2131, Fins1613, Fins1612, Fins2624, Econ2206

    Hey guys, just wondering apart from the compulsory 2111 and 2131 courses, what i should do to get better marks. ik fins1613 helps heaps in 2111 (and i should have done it before) but in actl1101 it was fine and i got nearly all of financial maths part without much difficulty.
    Also will doing econ2206 help 2131 as they are both based on stats.
    Any advice is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Just completed FINS1612 in S2/17. What I can say is that FINS1612 is extremely qualitative in nature especially for the first 8 weeks of content, and FINS1612 really requires students to read the textbook many times over and over again if they really wanna score well for the quizzes. The textbook is a truckload of content and the LIC likes to make the quizzes hard by going extremely into specifics for the questions even if it's not the main focus of the chapters. However towards the end of the semester you start to piece everything together and it somewhat becomes easier even though the last 4 topics require a lot more understanding and thought compared to the first 8 weeks. Historically it's a 5% HD rate and 20+% distinction rate, which doesn't make it entirely easy to get better marks if by better you meant HD. If I am not wrong 1613 has a higher HD rate of 15% or so, so you may want to consider doing 1613 (only if in first semester).

    Yeah do FINS1613 in sem 1 its pretty good then (I did s1/2017) you probs have Rob as your lecturer and he is a finance beast. Its a bit more content in sem 1 but the exams are very fair and they scale the marks if the performance is not that great. 2206 is introduction to econometrics unless you need to do it for your course than im not sure it might help (ask the business student centre) its a core for all eco students cos it teaches key modelling and stats content needed for higher years.

    Anyone also do econ2206 and/or econ3209 (business forecasting) and have any thoughts on them. Also is doing econ2206 2nd year 1st sem a bit too early?
