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).

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
Currently Undertaking: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Supramolecular Photochemistry (things that don't bond but they do and glow pretty colours)

Previous Study:
Bachelor of Science Advanced (Research) - Monash University, majoring in Mathematical Statistics and Chemistry

Probably won't regret taking the unit. If you keep up with the work and make sure not to make any simple mistakes (marking is not strict but very clear about what you need), it might benefit your WAM too.

I did it back in 2018 when Sam Butchart and Oisin Deery (both very helpful and kind) were running the unit, however, seems like they've handed the reigns off to other people going from 2019 into 2020. It likely hasn't changed much though.

Am I right in thinking unit guides are no longer a thing?

Prospective students don't get information from the unit guides anyway, only current students do. You would use the courses website info and for picking units inside your course the handbook information (which you would usually use).

OK, thanks. See, I've only heard things secondhand from uni-goers. :)

Email's just come through with updates about stage 4 lockdown. @insanipi I'd presume you'd be able to get an exemption for honours laboratory study only, otherwise it seems like everything else has to be done online

Been waiting all week to be told if I get an exemption- have heard nothing so far 😂

I suspect I won't be exempt though because they kicked us out last time :/ if I do get shut down, I'd be praying for an extension because it'll be the 6 weeks + 3 weeks to get started again and I simply don't have time for that 🙈

2:20PM update: it sounds like my cohort might be okay to go for labs still.

Hey guys I'm kinda desperate for a response since SFR applications are closing soon. If I SFR both sem 1 and 2 how would my course transfer application be processed? Thanks.
