Before anything, you can email the director of first year mathematics studies (Jonathan Kress) to see if you can look at your paper first. Or ask him about what options there are.

Try to keep things within the UNSW school of maths and stats before going through official UNSW procedures.

Yep, I'll do that as soon as the final marks are out. Even though there's a very small chance that the final marks have changed, I'm still hoping for something to have happened! Would you happen to know whether the university is open to letting student see their final paper? Thanks for all your help :)

Each school has their own policy regarding this sort of stuff. It's not UNSW's management that is responsible for this. Generally the staff at UNSW maths are pretty nice and people have been permitted to see their paper on request.

Any HD is really good! That's a great mark - nice job.

Basically, from here onwards, treat a High Distinction as a band 6, except usually <10% of the cohort get that high. There is no grade higher than HD.

The exact percentage varies depending on your degree/courses, but it always means at the upper end. For many degrees (law would be included in this I imagine) HDs are definitely not common.

IIRC Law faculty scales all of their courses to have a roughly consistent distribution

Does not seem to surprise me, but your evidence?

Hey guys just wanted to know roughly how many mature aged students there are at UNSW? My mum might potentially study there soon and just wanted to know if she can find some fellow mature aged students there like her! (to add context: my mumís in her mid 40ís and will potentially do double degree in law and international studies- most likely part time?)
Which will hold greater rule over you? Your fear or your curiosity?

Varies from faculty to faculty. (Personally only know like 1 in math but have seen heaps in comp.)

I can't make any prediction with international studies but there would be a fair few for law I imagine? Maybe double check with Emily and others to be sure.

Well I can't say I'm overly thrilled about my marks. But I achieved my main objective.

Have not seen a 90+ overall WAM at all since first year. (Been such a struggle trying to pull it up after the disaster of second year.)

Varies from faculty to faculty. (Most generally do for 90's though.)
