If it's about the feeling, there's not a lot you can do. Sometimes I'm ahead and yet I still feel overwhelmed. Best way to deal with it is probably just do whatever makes you feel comfortable and take frequent breaks.

With actually falling behind and preventing it, probably try and set scheduled study times for certain things. ie. if you have weekly homework/quizzes, set aside time around your timetable to work on these things. Even for things that might not necessarily be locked in like assignments you might want to set aside time weekly to work on them. One of the many things that's harder about uni is the lack of a rigid timetable - it's so much easier to be in school and be told precisely what to do, when to do it and where you have to do it. Making your timetable slightly more rigid may help with that (but be wary of making it too much so that you feel a bit suffocated).

Hey everyone,

I have a random question and was wondering if someone could please help me:

Do university tutors/ markers prefer that you put your references in alphabetical order?

Thanks in advance!

You need to follow the conventions of the referencing system you are using, in my experience this has almost always included listing references alphabetically by author last name.

It depends on the referencing you use

Some referencing formats use author year in alphabetical, and others such as Vancouver referencing use numbers - with no alphabetical order 😊 always check with the unit coordinator with referencing requirements (or use what the faculty your under uses if there's no preference is a safe bet)

Thankyou Bri and Insanipi for your help! :D

I just checked that I have to use the Harvard Referencing Style, so I think I might do it in alphabetical order just in case.  :)

Partially, some lecturers will only run zoom sessions. However, that possibly could be due to it just being easier for their schedule. Practicals are in person and tutorials are mostly in person (some tutors are still running zoom).

For me, there's only one practical online now (which is a pest). However, various COVID stuff is still in play while we're in person.


On another note, is it normal to feel you're going to fail an assignment?

My sister (VU) is still on online learning - apparently only has one class in her upcoming block that's in person aha

I guess it depends on which degree you do. it can be quite competitive and hard if there only few graduate jobs and lots of people looking

It depends on the job youíre after and a bunch of other factors. To be honest, itíll most likely be your skills and experience that will probably determine how hard it will be to get a job after uni. (Your competition is also a determining factor but thatís harder to control.)

I did discuss this briefly recently here, but Chocolatepistacho has got it partially right. Itís pretty normal to hear of cases of graduates searching for a job for a few months or a year or so these days and/or for them to write up tens to hundreds of job applications and attend a number of job interviews before being successful.

I'm still fully online (well, I was - term has since ended). I have the option of doing so again next term.

On another note, is it normal to feel you're going to fail an assignment?

I hate saying this as an answer, but it depends - are there any parts of an assignment you're particularly worried about? It's normal to feel somewhat inadequate but this is a generalisation not only for uni but for life as a whole. Seems like a pretty vague quip imo - maybe we can help you out more if you expand on this! ;D

Hi, so Iím currently in my first year of a double degree in commerce and comp sci and am not  doing too well. Iím really struggling in comp sci and may barely pass my units which is also causing me to do poorly in my commerce units as well (spend all my time trying to pass comp sci) and am really concerned about wam being too low to transfer. After doing the commercial law unit in commerce, it has been really interesting and Iím looking to transfer to commerce+law, but as said before my wam will be too low. What should I do? If it means anything I got an atar of around 95-96 (had Monash guarantee) which allowed me to get into my current course and would have likely let me get into commerce+law if I had chosen it originally.
I think you might like to see this recent thread that discusses a similar situation to your own.
