Alrighty thanks so much guys, way less stressed now aha .

www is pretty much right. Just wanted to point out that it is possible to switch into a Ďfullí session, although itís a bit trickier. When you receive your timetable in the adjustment period, ask on Moodle forums to see if you can find someone to swap with you.

What do you exactly mean by full session?

It looks like they're introducing a built in swapping system on Allocate+ this year!

'Submit a swap request' under this link.
I used this (SwapMe) last semester, and basically you select the class you want to swap from, and the time you want to swap to, and the system tries to match you with someone wanting the opposite swap. Once they've found someone, the swap is made. I believe you can also access this via Allocate+ itself - there should be a "request swap" option next to any full class :)

Hey guys,
So fortunately I got offered a scholarship for Monash & a course offer. I've accepted the scholarship like agesss ago before course offers came out. Looking at the WES page, my scholarship thing isn't there on the 'fees & scholarship' page. I've noticed that my student ID is different from the email saying that i've accepted the offer to the one written on my account. Who do I contact?  :) Thanks heaps guys!

I'm betting the numbers are different because scholarships provide another ID since it's usually through the scholarships portal, which is separate from WES from recollection. In this case, I'd probably look at contacting Monash Connect and have a look into it as soon as you can. :)

hello! i was just wondering if there were any 'rules' when submitting your own photo for the monash ID - like. should you go for passport style / school photo-ish / anything where they can see your face / more professional, etc, etc?

thanks :3

I did my photo before the self service system kicked in, so I may not be 100% updated here. Basically, take a photo as if it were for something semi-professional, like a driver's license (including L's and P's), Working with Children Check, work ID or, if you've had none of those experiences, imagine a school ID photo but you're in casual dress. You can smile, you can have a bit of make up if you like, but it needs to be a recent portrait photo of you facing the camera. I think they also ask for (or prefer) plain background and your face to be at least relatively clearly depicted in the photo. You also need to ensure the photo itself is not higher than a certain size file.

I did mine at home on the plainest background I could find (the pale yellow wall in the hallway near my room actually). Only regret is that I didn't like how my glasses glared so I took them off for the picture, and the exam officials now always ask me to look up to check the ID when I wear them to an exam ^-^

Adding to the responses above - it is pretty informal. I did mine on campus and they didn't even use a clear background although the actual photo turned out alright.

thank you to all who answered my photo question!!

i actually have another (unrelated) one haha: i have a textbook prescribed for bio and chem, however on the booklists page when i click to see more details it says 'please note, if you are enrolled in [the class] you will receive an e-copy of this text when you begin your course'
does that mean the e-copy will be free, and one would receive it regardless of having/not having bought the physical copy?

not sure on whether on the terms on getting the text but it would be best to wait until week 1 of uni until you start buying textbooks since your unit coordinators will let you know whether they are necessary and how much you will use them.

Hey! So I'm doing French Proficient (ATS 2065 + 2066) this year and I read something about a 'course reader' on one of the subject reviews? Apparently there's a new one each year. There's nothing about it on my booklist though - any idea when/if I can get any information about this?

Also, apparently the prescribed grammar book isn't necessary - can any French students confirm this? I looked at the contents online and it looks like pretty much the same grammar I did in year 10-12 French so probably I don't need it?
