Hi, how necessary is Top Hat, especially since it's $11 a semester?

Could you provide more context? Not exactly sure what you're after.

I think it's sort of like an app that allows you to interact with the lecture, such as giving answers to a question on the pp. I'm just wondering if it's ever been used for say quizzes that go towards your assessment or anything similar that would impact my wam.

Ah, sorry about that. They had the MARS system and physical clickers before this (Top Hat is newer), hence why I'm unfamiliar with it. I assume it'd work similarly though. If you have in-lecture assessment in the form of clicker-style questions, it'd most likely be done through Top Hat now. I'd recommend using the Monash Subject Reviews, your handbook entries or unit guides (if available) to assess whether you will have any in-lecture clicker-style questions. Seeing as the uni is asking you to use it, my guess is that they'll tell you in the first lecture if that purchase is necessary and, if it's needed, but actually free (since they cover the cost), then they'll probably give some form of access code to bypass the cost. If it's needed, but the uni doesn't cover the cost, then you'd know through the first lecture and can pay as necessary. Another way to know prior to the first lecture would be to ask via Moodle, if it's available already.

For me that has all been done through google forms, mars polls or clickers instead. Id get t if and only if you're told to by a staff member or recent publication for one of your units.

I got an email a couple of days ago with a three page document of things I 'need to go to' for O-Week, spread over 3 days, all from the faculty of Engineering. Does anyone know whether I actually need to show up to any of them, as I was intending to just show up for one day.

If there's an introductory lecture for the course or something similar, I'd recommend going to that because a) you can meet people in your course and b) you'll probably get some handy info. If they're trying to make you go on tours of the library or something, you don't really need to go to that unless you want someone to show you around.

When you're submitting assessments and need to provide a student number, is this your student ID (the 8 digit one on your card) or the number in your email?

Student ID number from your card :) You can also check your number on WES.

You can find this information by Googling the course or looking in Monash's course finder. Here's the link for biomed: https://www.monash.edu/study/courses/find-a-course/2019/biomedical-science-m2003

Hi, this might be a dumb question, but do we need exercise books or can we just type our notes up? Also Iím guessing it might depend on the class? Thanks!

All personal preference. I haven't run into a unit or heard of a unit that specifically forces you to write or type your notes. In some units, it may be easier to do one over the other, though.
