Just a word of warning:

This thread serves as a general discussion thread for USYD students. Please keep all the miscellaneous and off-topic conversation here as well as comments/queries/observations that don't warrant a new thread. While posts that would generally be considered spam elsewhere are tolerated in this thread, please note that this is not a substitute for Non-School.

Best wishes from,

OzKo & Blue Suede

Hi aerath :]

I am too dreading uni. But perhaps at least I may enjoy some subjects so it'll be bearable.

Also second day of sem1 exams is my 18th. Yes. So stoked!

Mixed feeling, looking forward to it but at the same time dreading the looming workload :(
if you discontinue (not fail) a unit, will that show up in your degree information after it's completion?

I have my first mid-semester exam this year :( The weighting of second year assessments isn't cool - I gotta put in an effort and a half now.

Enjoy first year you guys! :p

So nervous. So not ready.

Quick question. INFO1903 counts as a junior science elective, right?

Mentally preparing for an overload of work compared to the beautiful nothing I was doing for 4 months.

Well I have two solid proposals ready to go which I think would be quite applicable to the business environment so it should be quite a good thing to be doing while I'm applying for graduate jobs.

That being said, I'm meeting my supervisor on Monday to discuss them so we'll have to see what he thinks as well. Only issue I see is that it could be a bit broad but I already have a large set of data to work with already.

if it's in the science handbook then yes it is.

anyways, just looked at what days all my maths quizzes are on and when maths assignments are due and so far they all happen on Thursdays. Gonna have 8am quizzes twice for MATH2961 lectures D: and my MATH2962 and MATH2969 quizzes are on the same day both times. Also, I hope I don't die in STAT2911...

hey Britt,

I've been looking at my timetable and I don't have to go to 8am maths in the first week because there are no tutes so I can get to the 11ams. Join me there instead?
