Firstly welcome to Macquarie! What degree/major are you doing?

Last year enrollment into subjects didn't fully open until
Session 1 20198am on 5 December 2018

So you are unlikely to be able to make any subject selections until around then. I suggest waiting until you finish HSC, and then planning your units that you will undertake during year degree.

ACCG301 (now ACCG3001)
ACCG308 (now ACCG3008)

Some of my mates finished at the end of 2019. Heard it is a real clusterfuck at the moment.

Better late than never.

I started my Juris Doctor last semester and did:

- LAW600 - Foundations (Passed)
- LAW802 - Crime (70)
- LAW803 - Contracts (76)

Mediocre marks but decent given I was working 12+ hour days during the semester and decided I would do FIN for CA at the same time (which I found really hard). Yeah, that was not a smart move.

I genuinely thought I was going to fail FIN. Thank God I did not. Got 73 and I am not sure how that happened. Anyway, I have Capstone and then I'm done!

This semester I am doing:

- CA Capstone
- First unit of the ARITA Advanced Certification (short course through UTS for work)
- Property Law for my JD

I think I have really come to terms with being a super mediocre student. I love working way too much to ever focus purely on studying (plus I am a procrastinator from way back, so better than I am busy) and I am notorious for spreading myself too thin anyway! I think this semester will be fine - the units I am seen OK and there is no doubt as to whether or not I will pass - moreso, by how much.

How is everyone doing anyway?

Hmm I think we might have a different definition of mediocre! Given you are working full time and doing Uni/CA on top and still passing doing/well.

I”m doing alright. Currently surviving audit busy season. Should be starting CA next trimester :)
