    Modern History Life Skills subject?

    Hi all, Just wondering what the new Modern History Life Skills and Ancient History Life Skills subjects that NESA have introduced are all about. Are they the same as the normal subjects but for students with learning disabilities or poor English skills?

    The UNSW Scaling Thread

    If only there was some way to prepare for the final exam to give yourself the best chance of getting the mark you need. Maybe don't stick with your midsem strategy

    Finding out if my subject has an exam

    It had its pros and cons. I did the online lecture which was great because it kept me to a two-day timetable and i generally found the lectures to be pretty interesting. The course covers a long period history but week to week the content was fairly engaging. The tutorials, however, were...

    Gen Ed Recommendations

    Do GENS4015 Brave New World. I got an HD with maybe 5 minutes of work every week. Easiest subject.

    When to do Honours

    Hi all, Just a quick question. If you intend to do a year of honours after your degree, does it have to be taken the year directly after you complete a bachelors degree or can you apply 6 months or a year later?

    Laptop

    Don't get a Mac. Get a Lenovo, they're about $1000 cheaper but has all the same functionality.

    Finding out if my subject has an exam

    ARTS1270. Last year there was an exam, the year before didn't have one. However this years course convenor last took the course in the year where there wasn't an exam so it's hard to say.

The past course outlines vary, so there is no reliable indicator of whether there will be one this year and i would like to find out sometime in the next week before all the information is...

    No clue how to do Major Project !! Help

    It seems like you have a pretty basic misunderstanding of what the project entails. I would start by contacting your teacher (I recognise it's the holidays but it's worth trying) and looking over all the materials you been given about the project. The project is a work of historiography. You're...

    Richard III Potential Questions

    I would re-think your entire question because it's not exactly related to history. Shakespeare was a poet and playwright but he was not a historian. If you're looking at doing Richard III i would focus on how his portrayal by historians has changed over time or something to that effect.

    Anyone doing this course?

    Fair enough. It is very heavy on stupid terminology

    Anyone doing this course?

    Interesting. ARTS1090 was boring as bat shit for me but i never found it too difficult. It's certainly not a subject i would recommend but all things considered it was a pretty standard uni subject

    GENS4015 Brave New World: Science Fiction, Science Fact and the Future

    Hi all, I'm looking to do this subject as a Gen Ed next sem. All the info i can find about it online is from nearly 10 years ago so i was just wondering if someone who has done it recently could tell me anything about it or has a course outline? What are the assessments? How much time a week...

    UNSW IPT Dates??

    Yes, it will take into account Semester 2 marks. The offers for Semester 1 intake won't be released until December 14th and that's because they will wait to look at your final marks for this semester. Don't give up, keep working hard at boosting that WAM!
