That makes sense. .5454545454.... is 6/11, consistent with 11 subjects (4 + 4 + 3). It just means your WAM can be divided by 11 with 6/11 as a remainder.
Cheers. Guess that confirms it then

The total of n integers will have a remainder of either 0, 1, …, (n-1) modulo n. This means the possible fractionals parts for the average are just: 0, 1/n, 2/n, 3/n, …, (n-1)/n.

E.g. If 1 subject: only can have decimal of 0.

If 2 subjects: only can have 0 or 0.5.

If 3 subjects: 0, 0.333..., or 0.666...,

If 4 subjects: 0, 0.25, 0.5, or 0.75.

Etc.

So a fractional part of 0.25 for instance means the no. of subjects must have been 4 (or something divisible by 4).

(Assumption: weights in average are equal.)
Haha here's the mathematical answer.
Does this assume that all marks are integers ?
Yes. They are always integers.

I hope it's all 4 subjects, I did first year commerce subjects so econ1101, acct1501, mgmt1001 and econ1203, but thanks for the reply!
Through investigation mreditor deduced that all 4 of these should be out.

In general, does your wam tend to drop as you progress through your degree? [emoji38]

Mine has been rising at a faster rate each year... Doubt that will still happen in my final years though

Most of my other friends have it stable or dropping.

Really depends on the individual.

A lot of misconceptions floating around in the last two pages. Just to be clear, the stream declaration WAM is your course WAM, NOT your WAM for this semester.

Aside from that, assuming fins2624 has been put in, either acct2522 or econ1202 i think must have been put in. That's about all i can get from it. Interested to see what other people can deduct
FINS2624 has definitely been put in!

how sure are you that actl2131 is reflected, and not Actl2111.. im assuming that you do 2111 as well.

currently my mark reflects 3 subjects.
Because on Tuesday morning at 8AM, my stream declaration WAM reflected two subjects, and then at 11AM, it had changed and then reflected three subjects. By asking around (and comparing with students in my cohort doing different subjects e.g. B Actl Studies / B Adv Maths who don't do 2131 and whose WAM didnt change), we deduced that 2131 was uploaded then.

Does course deceleration wam include the wam of our previous course if we have transferred?

It's actually program wam if you want to be super clear. Courses are the subjects.

For clarification, mreditor meant University WAM for the current program you are enrolled in

Feels when your overall WAM dropped by nearly 2.

Expecting that Admin law was a big reason for that.

How do you know your WAM dropped by 2 when the results are not out yet?

The myunsw stream declaration 'trick' that has been discussed in the last few points.

I think all 4 subjects have been included for me by now.

how hard is it to get your wam up after doing pretty terribly in sem 1 LMAO

are all law subjects wam killers or does it get better when you get the hang of what law is? (i.e. the bell curve thing)
