Thanks for the tip! I've heard from quite a few people now that astronomy isn't as easy as it use to be.PHYS1160 wasn't hard, it just that I simply failed to put efforts in it. Well to be honest I believe they do try to mark harshly on some assessments like essay, discussion and short answer quiz, I guess they were trying to drag some people's mark down otherwise everyone would be getting full marks. but if you can consistently put adequate amount of efforts in every assessments then it's still a good wam booster.
But having said that, still lots of workload involved, especially that damn forum discussion thing, it felts like having two essays due every week, also marking criteria wasn't properly explained, you have no clue how many post or discussion you needed to get high marks.
I would say GENS5003 is way lot easier than PHSY1160, much less workload

They might have introduced a couple more assessments, but it's still an easy course - I doubt it was that much easier before. I ended up with 90, which probably could have been higher if I had double checked my quiz and final test answers (via a google search). The course really just comes down to how well you can write an essay and short responses. True that there is a fair bit of work to do, but it would be naive to think a student could sit around and do nothing for 4 months can get a HD.Thanks for the tip!

Do you know if Physics uses your raw overall mark as your final mark for the subject or does it calculate with scaling as your final mark?T1 ENGG1000 Engineering Design...............78 DN

LOL fuck yeah physics. But fml at the same time - one mark off a HD ;(
Meanwhile, optimization didn't scale so GG for me.
Meanwhile I'll be waiting for PTRL2010 and that will certainly drag my wam down by a mile - my term wam is 75.250 atm without PTRL2010 so when that comes in, GG.
Also broke the 69 wam this sem (had 69 wam for the previous two semesters)
They take your supp exam mark and your original final mark and take the average which is then added onto your quizzes + labs /40 mark.Do you know if Physics uses your raw overall mark as your final mark for the subject or does it calculate with scaling as your final mark?
I'm yet to do a Supp exam next week and would like to know this!
People who did it few semesters ago told me the same thing as well.Thanks for the tip! I've heard from quite a few people now that astronomy isn't as easy as it use to be.
Can you tell me what GENS5003 involves? I can't seem to find the course outline anywhere.

Not sure if there is some sort of aligning for 1121.
However 1131 did scale as there is no way I got over 85/120 in the final. I'm sure that max I could have gotten was 75-80/120.
