As far as I know, you're permitted to do both scenarios! I did 1 extended major and 2 minors - different to your scenarios, but as long as you satisfy the requirements for each major/minor you list on WES, they'll all be checked and approved when you graduate. The BA at a minimum needs either 1 major and 1 minor OR 2 majors (all listed under Arts approved areas of study).

It actually might be possible to do 3 majors depending on how someone sets up their course map? I think the degree can only list 2 majors on it though. Minors will not appear on your degree but will appear on your transcripts.

I would still recommend contacting Monash for official confirmation. I suggest using the live chat to save time waiting on the phone.

Thank you! Iíll ask them soon.

They did take a few days to reply (I didnít use live because it wasnít available when I checked), but the answer was as expected. The person who replied said that both of my scenarios were allowed, which were 2 majors and 2 minors, and 1 major and 3 minors. They additionally said that a double major doesnít require a minor, and the bare minimum is one major and one minor.

Thank you!

Hey guys! I was a bit confused about choosing electives. So as I understand you can choose 2 electives throughout your undergrad which are the same year level as you are studying (i.e. choosing MTH 1020 and 1030 in a year 2). Could someone confirm this :). Does anyone have suggestions for enjoyable electives for this semester for a first year biomed student?

do you mean not the same year level as study? anyway simply put for Biomed you can do a max of 10 year 1 subjects.

CHM1011 is a super popular first year subject for biomed

Yes, I meant same year level as study. I remember reading that we were restricted on electives on the forums somewhere but nevermind. So Biomed students can do all year 1 elective in years 2 and 3 if they don't do a double degree? Thanks

I don't think so. By max 10 year 1 units I include the core biomed units.

From the uni website: https://handbook.monash.edu/2020/courses/M2003
- "Electives may be from any level, however, no more than four electives (24 credit points) are to be completed from level 1" so consistent with the idea that you can do max 10 year 1 units (given everyone dose 6 core year 1 units).
- beyond that I believe you can do any non level 1 units.

Just wondering whether a 71 WAM is good enough to be considered for a transfer into Comp Sci/Commerce or should I not include this semester and try to get a higher WAM next semester?

I have no idea :/



I was looking at my units in prep for next week and saw this for one of the assessments:

No word count but it can't be more than 3 pages.
"There are no other specific formatting requirements, just make sure it is presentable as a report you would prepare in your ďrealĒ professional life."


What will I do with this level of freedom? Numbered referencing?? Use colours for the aesthetic???

Possibly. Iíd probably give it a shot. Worst case scenario, youíll remain in your current course for another semester (and maybe lose a little money if you have to transfer via VTAC).

Perfect opportunity to use Comics Sans, size 11 in a neon orange font. :P

Quick question. Unfortunately, I failed a unit in semester one. Instead of extending my degree by a semester (which I really donít want to do for a variety of reasons), am I able to take a summer unit, such as ATS2946 (Critical thinking: How to analyse arguments and improve your reasoning skills)? The unit I failed was just an arts elective, and wasnít leading to a minor or major, so Iím not fussy about which unit replaces the one I failed. Does anybody have experience with summer units, or ATS2946 in particular? Thank you!

Yes, you can do that. People do that all the time. According to Stalkerspace, that's a common one and typically well rated, but haven't done it myself
