Yes.
I guess you would have a chance but definitely not 100%. In the past I know the cut-offs for that scholarships has been around 99.2-99.3 ATARs.

I guess I was more concerned that Monash would "run out" of scholarships to give, and not be able to consider my ATAR because they used all 40. Do Monash release sources for what ATAR attains that scholarship or is this word of mouth?

Can someone please tell me whether two labs in one day is a good idea? This is on top of another workshop during the day. And is a 10-6 day draining or do people find it doable?
Double labs: Would not recommend double labs, unless unavoidable, especially back-to-back ones. You have assessments in labs as well, so it won't be helpful. (This is coming from experience.) 

Re: 9/10am -5/6pm everyday was pretty standard for me in basically all 4 of my years (except in hectic assignment times), however, I made sure to keep lots of 2hr+ breaks in that for lunch and study. So, not really draining, as long as you build in solid breaks for yourself.

If you have experienced any type of financial disadvantage, you should be eligible for the Monash UniStart Support Scholarship, which is a default financial disadvantage scholarship for anyone not receiving a scholarship already (excluding a few). I don't know if that helps, but here's the link for it anyway. (ATAR not considered there.)

Yeah, I sort of meant that I feared that Monash would give out all 40 scholarships to first-round applicants. I might look at your link though, thanks.

Anecdotal (not sure if actual stats are avaliable) but this is from some students with 99.2s missing out. However, I should note I am basing this off numbers from the past few years so could have changed (higher/lower) this year.

Typically scholarships (in general) can be offered up until like March IIRC, so I don't think it's just Round 1 applicants who'll get them.

Timetables usually come early February (a few weeks before uni starts), as stated here. Usually Med, Pharm and other similar specialist courses arrive around that time with a week or so leeway, having their own timetable dates, since they usually have rigid timetables.

As AngelWings said, it's a few weeks before uni starts. I do physio and my timetable sometimes doesn't fully come out until about 2 weeks before uni starts :)

Adding onto this, the pharmacy & pharmsci ones (I know there's a couple of you lurking the forum :P ) definitely won't be released until 2 weeks before semester starts! :) (this is better than 6 days prior for the past 2 years I've been in the course lol)

Hi everyone I'm really confused as to what the difference between the 3 lectures are, is it just that one has learning capture, one has live-streaming and the other doesn't have either? I was also wondering what the difference is between the labs as most seem to occur at the same time?

Thank you so much

Hey there,

Regarding the lectures, I'll copy-paste part of my response from a different thread:

LC = lecture capture. If you select this activity, you will be able to clash this timeslot with another class (if you so wish). Any preferences for other classes which have the same time as this lecture will be considered (for a clash) by the system when setting up your timetable. This is a good option for students who plan on watching the lecture recording later, and want to attend a different class during this time. Warning: Some lectures have in-class quizzes, or you may have a mid-semester test during one of your lecture slots.

LSP = live stream Panopto(?). If you select this activity, you will not be able to clash this timeslot with another class. Any preferences for other classes which have the same time as this lecture will be ignored by the system when setting up your timetable.

You can also select attendance to the live lecture (Activity 01 in your case). Regardless of which option you select, you'll still get access to both live streams and lecture recordings. Additionally, most units don't monitor lecture attendance anyway, so it won't really matter which option you choose. After around week 2, live lecture attendance tends to drop anyway, so you can choose to attend the live lecture, livestream it online, or watch it later (recorded), depending on what you prefer! :)


Regarding the labs, you'll notice that all of the ones with the same time (e.g. Monday 14:00) have the same room number, except for the "Bay". Those are all the same lab, except each allocation is for a different bench/table number. Students usually choose specific bay numbers to get onto the same table as their friends.

Hope that helps!

Wow thanks so much, this definitely clears things up! So for the lectures, for the learning capture and live streaming one does this mean I don't attend a class and do it online?

If you don't want to attend the lecture (which in first year I would recommend attending) then you can livestream it online, or watch the recording later :)

Still struggling to enrol, with no ability to complete 2FA. I have contacted the Service Desk multiple times, and I was rung on Friday, and told that there was a 24-hour exemption so that I could complete the rest of the enrolment, but it just came back to the same screen, shown below. Does anyone have any suggestions, besides emailing back (which I've already done)? Pls???
