    Re: MQ S1/18 Results Thread

    I'm pretty sure I'm on a distinction for one subject.

    Not sure about the others.

    Re: MQ S1/18 Results Thread

    When I was in 1st year I got results at 9am - I imagine they stagger the emails so as to cope with the deluge of incoming calls/enquiries that follow, but yeah, who knows how they choose the break up?

    Re: MQ S1/18 Results Thread

    Arghh, some surprises and some letdowns:
    Unit Code/Name - SNG (Predicted SNG)

    ACST306 Quantitative Asset & Liability Modelling 1 - 81 (76) - Definitely Scaling
    ACST356 Mathematical Theory of Risk - 90 (83) - Scaled quite a lot
    ACST358 Survival Models - 72 (86) - No idea what happened as this implied I got 53% in Finals :/.
    COMP115 Introduction to Computer Programming - 98 (97) - They rounded up my 97.4% lol.

    Overall, it isn't the worst that could happen, will definitely view script for the 3rd one to see what happened.

    Re: MQ S1/18 Results Thread

    Put a slight dent in my GPA (1C, 3D, 1HD) - again, let me recommend that students should think very carefully before adding a 5th Unit to a semester; not so much for grades, because grades are often just massaging an ego, but I found my actual understanding (+enjoyment) of concepts suffering. I'm only just starting to grasp certain science concepts in this Winter break that normally I would have had the time to read & study during semester.
