    ECON241- 51

    I really messed up that unit, I'm only 50% confident I passed.

    I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed that you pass mate. I’ve heard it is one of the hardest units that you’ll face in your degree.

    Does anyone think they have a chance for a prize for any of their subjects?

    Re: Semester 2 2018 MQ Results Discussion Thread

    Managed 3Ds, was much better than I could have hoped for and helped by a 3rd Yr PHYS policy of 'if you do better in the Final exam than your Mid-Sem test then the Final exam result is used for the mid-sem weighting'. Considering I barely got over 50% in my mid-sem, even acing the final would have only got me in credit range without this policy. Can't complain!

    Re: Semester 2 2018 MQ Results Discussion Thread

    Did quite bad this sem due to laziness, didn't expect a Distinction for ECON241.

    Will need to work hard for the next half of my study period.

    2 P's 1D, luckily I only took 3 units.

    Grats to everyone who got good results!

    Congratulations on the impressive results everyone.

    If you have time pop over and review your subjects so the next cohort going through can benefit from your experience.

    Yeah commenced 2016 - so the new system differentiates between Distinctions and High Distinctions, is that right? If so, I'm happy to be on the old system, I'm 21 units in with one Credit and a 50/50 mix of Ds & HDs #humblebrag

    I actually deleted my 1st year reviews of Math, Phys & Astro subjects because, on reflection, I've noticed how deeply personal and varied these experiences become. For example, in second year math units I had a lecturer who I (still) consider to be the worst communicator I've had the personal misfortune to endure - but - I have spoken to a fellow student, who I have the greatest respect for (AND this person has outstanding results and understanding), who felt this particular lecturer was "excellent". That's just one example. So I'm quite uncomfortable with 'reviews' but always happy to give informal replies when I may have specific unit insights to a question!

    2 Ds in busl320 and accg340. Had a turbulent final semester dealing with personal problems, but glad I finished strong. Will review a few subjects which hopefully will help those next year.

    Well done! Even people I know who recieved HDs in all other subjects got a mid credit in ACCG340 so you should be proud.
