I tried choosing 6 subjects for sem 1 but got told i would die if i did. But other than dying nobody told me it wasn't allowed so it must be possible for some people.Hmmm, I'm also thinking of doing 5 subjects (30cp). Has anyone tried doing 6 subjects (36cp) before? I won't be working but will be living in college (but I'm not much of a party-goer anyway)
Some faculties allow you to do just do it on myuni. But my faculty (Economics) insisted that I fill out a form and ask for permission. So I guess its different for every faculty.i'm doing 30cp at usyd in sem1, except i never asked anyone for permission, and the website allowed me to :\
should i have asked first?
if you're doing some kind of science degree, you will not be able to catch up enough. Not to mention the time each subject takes...science degrees usually have 25 hours per week so assume around 6 hours per subject per week..you're looking at 36 hours of just lectures and tutes, plus they recommend for every cp you do you devote 1.5 hours of your own per week time to it. so thats like (1.5x36) 54 hours right then. Put it simply not enough time.I tried choosing 6 subjects for sem 1 but got told i would die if i did. But other than dying nobody told me it wasn't allowed so it must be possible for some people.
