Re: UNSW chit chat thread 2016

I cringe so hard every time the exam coordinator says ‘make sure’ instead of ‘endure’. My principles of conciseness won't allow it.

I usually take the 891, and walk for like 5 minutes. But you can take the 372 (which is arguably easier if there is a bus)-you will probably need to use google maps to know you are near randwick (if you haven't been) or just ask bus driver (but always ask). I think 891 slightly increases in frequency in exam periods.

People says 891 don't operate on weekends :(

Re: UNSW chit chat thread 2016

Ok so I got a supp exam right. So assuming I pass this, what mark goes on my transcript? Is it just plain 50, or is it a PC, or is it 50% of the final + rest of course mark? Chem course btw.

Re: UNSW chit chat thread 2016

only do it if you don't care about wasting your time at uni, very pointless imo. I would pick comm1000, no quizzes no final and you actually do learn about making a difference in your community. Marks come from tutorial work, 2 simple journal reflections and 1 group project about a social issue. It's also incredibly easy and no pressure.
MGMT1101 was very much a low pressure course. That said most people think its a WAM booster without effort, which it isn't unless you do the work and that ended up catching a lot of people by surprise when I did it I think. You've really gotta put the time into the group assignment to get the marks there and the journals are marked hard too, so you've really gotta write them well, which together a significant part of the course overall. And most of the tutors don't just give away the participation marks either. I enjoyed the subject but it is very fluffy in terms of content.

It's usually just plain 50 or 51. No more PC grades are given out

Okay so for chem it's a bit different here. You needed to have got a mark of 35% in the final exam in order to pass the course.

As for the mark in your transcript, it's the sum of your pre-final mark + your supplementary exam mark (or your final mark, whatever is higher), but your supplementary mark might be capped to a credit I think. I remember you do not get exactly 50 for the course.

Thank the lord man, nice to know you passed. (Y)

The chemistry 1A final exam is pretty hard especially if you haven't done chemistry before though.

This makes absolutely none sense.
