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).

Yeah thanks that's what I was thinking.  It's kind of stupid though isn't it? It's like they don't want to give any information regarding engineering to those with surname's M-Z lol

It really doesn't matter - go to which ever session works best for you schedule wise. Last year we ended up just sitting on the floor if all the seats had been taken.

Not sure if this is the right thread for this question,
Anyway, was doing my online enrolment today, and I wasn't able to choose calc2/linear 1 because I had done the HSC. I went through the process of applying to get a waiver
and whatnot, but am bricking it a bit here because I'm not 100% as to whether I will receive it due to the GAP year I took last year.
Do I have a good chance of getting in, and even if I do, how hard will it be to keep up at the beginning?

Does anyone know anything about the competency test for COMP10002?
https://handbook.unimelb.edu.au/view/2014/COMP10002

I have done small amounts of basic programming, so not sure whether I would be suitable to skip the prereq of COMP10001.

Does anybody have any experience with Calc 2 though? How hard is it to get back into the swing of things?

calc 2 is one of the hardest level one subjects, simply because learning the material is not enough.Topics are easy to understand so dw BUT you also need the brains to solve question you've never even seen before. A lot of people fail calc 2.

Probably a stupid question - is it possible to do a first year subject as second year breadth? I'm torn between LING10001 and ANTH10001 and they both only run classes in second semester this year. :(

(Also, probably the wrong thread, but is there any point doing LING10001 if you've already done VCE English Language? I don't really want to learn about the basics of the subsystems all over again.)
To your first question I can say yes, you can do subjects of any level at any time (despite the uni saying you need to do 50 points at level 1 to do level 2 subjects/50 at level 2 for level 3, I've never seen this be enforced) so long as there aren't prerequisites.

Email 13MELB or the Science Student Centre, I had the same problem (with chemistry too, it would bizarrely let me enrol in Chem 2 but not in Chem 1.)

It's definitely a difficult subject, but it's doable if you study.

I've seen it enforced when I tried to do Chinese 3A first semester of 1st year and they wouldn't make an exception for me even when I asked although I know that exceptions can be granted sometimes.

I have heard that some Breadth subjects don't count  towards your GPA. So what if I was to apply or to aim for Postgraduate Medicine? Do I need to take subjects that count towards my GPA?

I don't know who you heard that from but breadth subjects do count towards your gpa, just as any subject under your specific bachelor (e.g. a science elective in a bachelor of science degree) does.
