    JMP GPA and DNF grades

    Hey guys, So I called UoN the other day and asked if a 4.1 GPA would be sufficient for a completed degree JMP entry and I was told it should be fine (I have an average mark of 63 and hence why USyd doesn't use GPA - a lot of 64s that only count as 4 not 5, ack). I have a BSci from USyd...

    so, you know how you have to do poetry, shakespeare, prose and non-fiction (i think those are the categories - but it's not the point) and how paper one and two are separate? one of my friends wants to do poetry as one of her modules but also does it as her aos. do the papers get checked or...

    christianity in the media.

    does anyone else find it disturbing that there are now tv ads for jesus? i find it unsettling, it seems to insinuate that the church these days is just a corporation, and i don't understand what's with the ads? do they think they'll convert people by saying how sunburn is crap, but jesus has...

    marking creative writing stories..

    so, i was thinking the other day, and if your creative writing is about a sensitive issue that the marker has experienced, are they allowed to mark it? eg. you write a story about losing a child and the marker has lost a child, are they able to objectively mark the story?

    hey, someone posted the other day that your teachers have to let the board know which elective you do, therefore you can't just choose an elective that you want to teach yourself and do one that is different to the rest of your cohort. i'm pretty sure that each exam paper has every...

    so, got my trial results back and stuff the other day, went crap because i didn't deal with the pressure at all, but also posing the question to myself that maybe i'm not as intelligent as everyone seems to think i am, which isn't the point of this post, but an interesting thought, because of...
