So can the education officers of relevant student societies.

If you've been treated unfairly in terms of academia or you fuck up badly and need rescuing, you'll get much more help from the union if you're a member (otherwise they'll just tell you to scram - nicely, of course).

Hmm interesting, i might end up joining it then :)

Another question, in my study plan, it's got my UMEP subject! "MAST10013 - UMEP Maths for High Achieving Students , Exempt Mark: 0" I didn't add it, it just appeared in the last few days.

Does this mean I've lost a potential subject space?

I did some research and if i did lose it, i'm guessing i have to use this "C03 Request to Amend Credit / Advanced Standing" form to remove it?

If you have previously been awarded credit you can apply to have this credit amended by either rejecting existing credit or applying to have previously rejected credit re-granted for course planning purposes. Students must have a sound academic reason for amending credit. Requests to amend any advanced standing / credit awarded towards the Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Biomedicine or Bachelor of Science degrees at the University of Melbourne, can be made using the C03 Request to Amend Credit / Advanced Standing

Yes, that's what it means. If you go to the student centre and ask for a form to rescind credit, they'll give you the one you need.

I was trying to see if they had a fax number, and they said 'if it has one on the form then you can fax it in' otherwise i have to go in person. I was >_> <_< at the time, as none of the forms have one!

Calling does *occasionally* work, but most often only in the instances where you can get the direct line of the person you need to deal with. Therefore, 90% of the time, expect to have to drive in to uni to get shit sorted.

Again: welcome to uni bureaucracy :)

So with the host program, where it has a T-shirt colour, do we have to wear a t shirt that colour? or is that just the colour t shirt that the host will be wearing?

Pretty sure that's the colour the host will be wearing so you can find them easier.

It's the colour that your host will be wearing to differentiate them from a student

Could you explain your reasons for wishing to have your UMEP maths credit removed?
From what I can gather, the University considers it equivalent to Accelerated Mathematics 1

Of greater interest to me is whether I can keep my actual grade from last year. Does anyone know?

PS. Great informative post OP !

Personally i chose to gt rid of my UMEP maths credit because i didn't want to do one less maths subjects and go straight into accelecrate maths 2 without doing maths in semester 1 so i did vector caculus instead of accelcrated maths 1 which was muhc easier but didn't mean i went into accelerated maths 2 with more of a shock than i already had. Having said this if you're not planning to do accelerated maths two then you could defintiely just cut one subject from your study plan and substitute this in (i would strongly recommend saving that free subject space for later years when the subjects are much harder) it would be a breath subject and yes you would keep your grade and score.

Note that even if you get rid of the credit for doing UMEP maths so you can do one extra subject, you can STILL use the uni maths score to count towards subjects that requires it (or accelerated maths 1) as a pre-req.

I got a bad mark for it and I needed the space for another subject. You can still use it as a pre-req if you get it removed.

Last year for me, it took up one of the subjects in the study plan and so i'm fairly sure you keep the grade by default.
