1st week tutorials

Is there any point to these?
I heard at my faculty orientation that tutes go through stuff from the previous weeks lecture (which well we havent had of course)
In addition to this is it true that some unis dont even run some tutes untill about 2nd week or so?

Look at your handbooks when you get them during your first lecture.

Some tutes DO run in 1st week, and it may be a compulsory thing.

more importantly. check to see if you get tutorial participation marks. Then you know if its skippable or not

If you're a new student doing a first year subject, it's often nice to go to first week tutorials (if your unit has them) just to get familiar with the people in your class... there's usually a little bit of meet and greet directed by the tutor... you don't do much work (if any), and first week tutes have a tendency to finish early. Some of the activities you do sometimes are quite fun and make you feel like you're back in primary school, ha ha ^_^

Also, you can decide whether you like your tutor or not, and whether you want to consider changing classes on Allocate while you still can.

Oh, and tute participation marks are a nice, easy component of your final result for some units... best to attend units that have tute participation marks.

Seminars are similar to tutes, but more... hands-on and practical.

You're more often given the chance to practice, and it's more... applying what you've learned rather than learning, if that makes sense.
Personally, I think seminars are far more important and useful than either the tutes or lectures, but I spose that depends on how good your sensei is.

Oh, and I'm not sure about your Jap level, but we would have a test in our seminars every couple of weeks that counted for a small portion of our final result.

They're usually very knowledgeable in their line of work with a lot of experience.  It was in the case in high school and I don't think it would be different at uni.
