  • Final Notice of COMP1511

    Posted by Marc Chee Friday 18 December 2020, 03:31:15 PM.

    Hi COMP1511,

    We've wrapped up most of the results for COMP1511 and most of you should have recieved official notice from UNSW already of your final marks. We have a couple of things to cover today:

    • Thanks and goodbye for now
    • UNSW Shutdown from 19th December to 4th January (11th January for COMP1511)
    • Marks Release (including exam breakdown)

    Thanks and Goodbye

    The team at COMP1511 have really appreciated the time and effort that you've put into COMP1511 this term and hope that you've learnt something useful that you can take with you in whatever it is you're going to work on next.

    On a personal note, thank you for making it through one of the strangest and potentially hardest (hopefully?) years in our lives. Trying to concentrate on studying when you're doing everything remotely can be a very isolating experience. We hope that, if anything it's helped us all understand the importance of human connection, especially while learning difficult concepts.

    In the coming months or years, we may find ourselves back at UNSW in person again. If you see your tutor or lecturer on campus, be sure to say hello, we're always interested in hearing from our past students!

    UNSW Shutdown

    COMP1511 will not be actively responding to emails from the 19th of December, until the 11th of January. We cannot guarantee that your emails will receive a response before the 11th of January. Many University services and campus locations are closed until the 4th of January.

    If you are not feeling like your usual self, if you're feeling nervous, lonely, stressed or depressed, there is free, confidential help available – people you can talk to any time of the day or night:

    • Call Benestar on 1300 360 364 for one off or ongoing counselling
    • Call Lifeline on 131 114 (24/7) or chat online (7pm – midnight AEST)
    • International students in Australia: Medibank's International Student Health and Support Line 1800 887 283 (24/7)
    • International students not in Australia: Medibank +61(2) 8905 0307 (24/7)

    In an emergency:

    Medical emergency or self harm/suicide attempt – Call 000 or go to your nearest public hospital emergency room

    If you are on campus call the On-Campus Emergency Support Team: 9385 6666

    If you or someone you know is thinking of taking their own life, call the Mental Health Line: 1800 011 511

    While UNSW is closed, your grades, academic standing and student record will not change. The University re-opens Monday 4 January 2021 and staff will be available at The Nucleus to answer any questions. If you have any questions that relate to your academic results or transcripts visit

    Marks Released

    As you will know, UNSW has released marks for COMP1511. You will find that your student page now shows your exam marks and provisional final mark. This should be the same as in your marks notice -- if it's not, it's probably a rounding difference, but let us know so we can be sure.

    If you have an issue with any of your marks, you should email . Please Ensure your email contains the words "Mark Review" in the subject line, so we can find them all. Please note that your email may not receive a reply until after the 11th of January.

    Some of you will have received a mark of "LE". Your student page will give you some information about what the issue with your marks is. If your provisional mark says: "You will be contacted further about this shortly." we will directly contact you about the issue with your marks. If you have questions about this, please email

    If you have been told that we will be in touch with you, please wait for the email from us (it may not arrive until the 11th of January).

    Marc (on behalf of the COMP1511 Teaching Team)

    PS: Chicken wishes you all the best and Happy Holidays!
