The marks amongst the top 20 students (and even the top 50!) are extremely close, so don't feel disparaged if you didn't make this list. As grading for this term was SY/NF, we didn't do a lot to try and differentiate between the high-performing students, as we normally would.
In general, you all did really well in this course, considerably better than students in previous offerings, not only in terms of marks, but also in terms of helping each other out in the forums and supporting your classmates during a difficult term.
While you were introduced to me under somewhat unusual circumstances, it has been fun teaching you all and I hope you all do well in the future, both at UNSW and beyond. Our paths may cross again in future :-)
Just wanted to say a big congrats to all of you for making it through T1 and wrapping up your project/exam for this course last week. It was no doubt a wild ride trying to adjust to the online learning, but I'm sure it all went smoothly under Rob's leadership and the insanely awesome support from your tutors. If you get a chance you should definitely take the 1-2 minutes it takes just to email Rob or your tutors and say THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME. The world can never do with too much kindness :)
I also wanted to apologise for my somewhat sudden absence from the course. Things come up in life sometimes that you have to tackle head on, but thankfully at this stage I'll be around teaching other subjects in T2 and T3, so hopefully I'll see some of you around (probably via video). If any of you want to stay in touch longer term would recommend hunting me down on LinkedIn!
Never stop looking after yourselves or looking after each other, and thanks for always being a pleasant cohort to teach for the first 5 weeks of the term.
At 9AM the exam will conclude. If you are still working, please ensure you commit and push all work by then. You will lose access to your repository at that time.
Owing to timetabling, there are a few students who are sitting the exam at different times over the next few days. As such, please don't discuss the contents of the exam in any public arena . I know it's unusual, but unfortunately these are the times we're in.
The marking of the exam will begin shortly, but, sadly, we're not allowed to release the mark to you till after the official release of results. That means that you won't get your exam mark and course result (Satisfactory or Fail) till the 22nd.
