I completely forgot until until I saw this thread and then waited nervously for 10mins until they were sent haha.

BIO1011 (bio) HD 85
ATS1261 (understanding human behaviour) HD 80
PSY1011(psych) D 79
PMH1011 (mental health)  C 63

I am a bit surprised that ATS1261 was that high because I didn't put as much effort in. I put a lot of effort into psych and mental health assignments but essays and writing isn't my strong point and I way prefer tests/exams. I do sort of get why mental health was so low because I was pretty behind on it, but I think the content we learned was the most important and relevant to future jobs than my other subjects. I'm happy with bio, was my favourite subject, extremely well run and also I was very motivated to study for it.

Edit: I calculated my estimated WAM and I feel like my marks are a lot worse that highschool, (I remember reading it's normal to do worse in uni though after VCE though). Is the WAM similar to an atar like a percentile thing? I'm competitive and I like knowing how many people are beating me, to motivate me to study more, but I don't know how to judge how I'm doing relative to others in my course ahhhhh (maybe it's better not to know though)

Edit much later: ahhh, they remarked pysch because of some reason and the faculty seem super disorganised (?), but new grades came out, and mine decreased to 76 hahaha

Those are pretty good scores for someone's first semester. Very unlucky with the 79.

Yeah WAM is generally going to be lower than someone's ATAR especially for those on AN, the reverse happens generally when someone gets a low ATAR.

WAM is not really a percentile given most subjects are not scaled or standardised so you just get the marks that you earn. It depends on the person you ask on whether X WAM is good or not.

This is the first year I haven't even known when results will be released haha. Didn't have exams as my academic unit is full year and our placement marks make up 100% of our placement unit grade so I've known those marks since the end of my two placement blocks (although I can't remember one of them). Got an 88 for the one I can remember which I'm super proud of - I think it's the highest mark I've had at uni and an awesome mark for a placement!! :D

Good luck for your results everyone and congratulations on getting through what's been a really challenging first semester of uni!!

Don't want to derail the convo too much - but I assume you're a Latrobe or Melb student if doing placement at the Austin? Placement is really tough, the APP is a ruthless marking tool haha.

Definitely a massive change from traditional units where your mark is made up of a whole bunch of assessment tasks!

BMS1011 Biomedical chemistry - 63 C
BMS1021 Cells, tissues and organisms - 53 P
BMS1031 Medical biophysics - 51 P
CHM1011 Chemistry 1 - 57 P

Well rip on my scores. I really underestimated how hard biomedicine is at Monash. I hope these results make someone feel better at least :)
