My predictions (not including scaling)

COMP4128 - 87 (That's my actual mark unless scaling happens)
COMP3821 - 97-98, or 100 if bonus marks from the assignment count for final
MATH2111 - 89ish
MATH2601 - 75-80

how much harder are the higher math courses than their lower counterparts (math2011, math2501) ? Most likely going to be majoring in stats so was wondering if the higher counterparts are more useful or anything?

I would say higher is made significantly harder. Depends on what you mean by useful, I don't really think either course relates to statistics like, at all (apart from the really basic matrix stuff at the beginning of linear algebra)

is there any benefit to doing higher courses? or is it just for love of math + possibly better scaling

pretty sure econ1102 is up (or could be acct2522 but unlikely)

Scaling isn't really a positive or negative thing (someone who does well in higher will get ~100 in regular, someone who is struggling with regularis only gonna do worse in higher). You should do it if you think you'll enjoy it (or if you want to major in Pure Mathematics, because it's compulsory. Not sure about Applied).

Mark changed this arvo. I reckon it's MGMT1001 but if anyone can confirm this that would be great.

Yes, you're spot on there.

Math marks are out. Did you get what you expected KingOfActing? I got lower than I thought for 2601 and higher than I thought for 2111

I didn't do MGMT1001 this sem so unfortunately I have nothing helpful to say about that.. but I was wondering if anyone could confirm if FINS1613 is out?

Wait are you sure FINS1613 is out.. because I legit thought I failed because I guessed like half the paper... but my WAM isn't that tragic?? I'm so confused.. but I hope so
