I didn't realise T2 timetables were out!! Thanks for the heads up, mine is either great or crap depending on the classes I get ;D

I'm finding trimesters much, much more difficult personally ;D

I'm glad that I have Thursday off but I love how I have to walk from Burrows to Matthews (if only all my classes were in the lower campus ;-;).

I guess I just need to figure out where these theatres/rooms are lol

As for uni itself, I love it when I have nothing due in one week and then the next week I have like 5 things due 🙄

Never got to experience semesters but really hating these trimesters.

T2 is looking alright I've gone from 4 days to basically 2 full days (lets just not look at the lec on Wednesday's)

Just popping in here to say that looking at these T2 timetables are making me slightly jealous, given I've always had (effectively) 5 day weeks in all my uni timetables 😂

As a first year, trimesters suckkkkkkkk. Even my law lecturer (who has been teaching the same course for 30+ years) said it was ridiculous.

We'll see how a 2 subject term is before I jump to any conclusions (or another university). My T2 timetable looks a bit dense, but I'll probably if skip the Macro lecturers if its as easy as I hear it is.

Are you doing Arts/Law and taking macro as a free elective? or Commerce/Law and taking Arts as a free elective?

Also, curious on who your law lecturer is? My guy has been some High Court judge

Arts/Law and taking macro as a required level 1 course for my minor in econ.

I have Vines (who I very much like). Selwyn is an interesting character from what I've heard, but I've also heard he has a tendency to just recite slides and give everyone 15 for class participation.

Hi, so for my desired course at UNSW the ATAR is 94 for Commerce/Media (takes into account HSC Plus Bonus Points). What happens if I get an ATAR of 93.90 or 93.95? Would that mean that I could still be offered a place in the course if there are spare vacancies. How does it work, I am pretty confused

If (having taken into account the HSC Plus) the guaranteed entry requirement is 94, what you said is correct.

(It's fairly common for the actual cut-off to be a bit below the guaranteed level. This is due to vacancies, like you predicted.)

Sorry RuiAce. I meant to say that the required ATAR is 96. If I get 93.95 and an additional two bonus points, lets say for getting a band 5 in Advanced English. Would that mean I can still have a chance of a spot in the course. Or is there no way, because I missed the cut off by 0.05

I'd say you've got a really good chance. Cut-offs are indicative, it is very common to get in below them ;D
