Important links
Student Webmail login, if you don't want to go through the portal. The uni is migrating to GoogleApps so you’ll probably get an offer to sign up for that.

This link is broken for me

I'm a first year and struggling with QM. How would I go about finding a private tutor?

Have you been using consultation hours and finding that they are not enough?

hey, just a random question.. not sure where to post this.. but can someone with experience tell me how hard it is to get into post grad physio after doing a science degree at melb or how hard it is to get into engineering after doing a science degree at melb? thankss

Probably better to post it in a new thread or in the 'UoM General Chat' thread below. This new student one is for advise about beginning study at UoM.

Not sure where to post this but, I'm a little confused for what's happening on Academic Advice Day.  I am doing Bachelor of Commerce and so am going to attend that one hour information session, but I also want to do engineering, for which the information session is at the same time (11am-12pm).  Do I have to go to the information session with my surname? Why have they placed this at the same time? I don't get  ??? Someone inject me with some help, thankz

Trying to enroll in my subjects online but unsure which ones to take.

So I believe I'm eligible to do Calc 2 instead of Calc 1, as well as Physics: Advanced instead of Physics.
I'm not sure which subjects I should do.

Advanced ones let me learn new things, but are likely to lead to lower marks.
Basic ones let me get good marks and go over my previous knowledge.

If you got 25+ in Spesh then you do Calculus 2. Don't waste your time with Calculus 1.
If you were good at VCE Physics and enjoyed it, then take Advanced. If you didn't, just take normal Physics.

Thank you.

So it's better to learn new things and suffer lower grades?
In doing this, it should allow me to do more of the other subjects that interest me yes, as I will have free blocks?

Well what's the point in essentially re learning something you already know (in the case of Calculus 1)? It's not even about ease of grades... I wouldn't ever think of it like that... The subjects follow on from each other so that you are consistently building on your body of knowledge. That's the point. And yes of course - it leaves room for more interesting and advanced subjects down the track. You might even have room for a 'double major' if you plan carefully and can't decide between two things you enjoy.

Well.

Just wanted to make sure! Thank you Hobbitle.
I guess I will pick the advanced ones then, just to see how I go.

definitely don't do calc1 if you've done spesh. there's no point.
from what i've heard, the advanced stream of physics is almost exactly the same as the regular physics stream, just you use slightly more math. If you like math, go for it, otherwise you probably won't be missing out on much if you take the regular stream. as far as marks are concerned, you'll prolly be looking at similar marks regardless of which stream you take.

Ah thank you, turns out I can't do advanced physics anyway. Didn't see the part about 35 in spec, only got 33.

You are meant to go to the session with your surname, but you "don't" have to. If they ask you what your surname is on the way in (which they will like train inspectors, and stop a few people at a time), just say that it is something within the range (A-H) or (I-Z).
