Based on the MyExperience score, and another 5 minutes I'll add on, we're going to have the final exam start at 2pm and finish at 5:29pm (an extra 29 minutes!).
Any times for ELS or other adjustments will be communicated separately.
By Sunday night at 10pm we will have released your iteration 3 marks and final project mark.
You will (not yet, but on Sunday) see a number of grades available:
These marks are subject to change if new information comes to light or mistakes were made in the determinations (happens from time to time).
If there are issues with your project mark, please reach out to your tutor. Whilst their response won't be necessarily quick, we will be thorough. Don't stress about "marks being locked in" as I have the ability to update marks until something like Christmas, so we have plenty of time if you're a particularly tricky case.
Two extra week 11 help sessions have been added to Sunday. Check them out .
If you would like to talk to your tutor about reruns for labs or project, you have until the end of Sunday the 27th of November to produce the new commit and email your tutor the branch name that you'd like to re-run. This is the cut-off for re-runs for T3. This doesn't mean they have to have it resolved by the end of Sunday night, but we need you to at least start the conversation.
Hope everything has gone well with iteration 3. It's been incredible seeing everyone pick up the work and tackle the challenge. The term has flown by. It's crazy how much you've all managed to learn this term.
to complete their first peer review for iteration 3. This is invaluable feedback for your tutor to track how your group is performing together. You need to complete this by Monday @ 5pm!
Have a great weekend - you have some time before the exam and realistically most of you are pretty much ready for the exam, so things will be OK! :)
We're wrapping up week 9 - keep your heads down and keep focused. No more labs. No more new content. One tutorial. Make this weekend count, and keep steady next week. Updates below:
Our week 10 exam lecture will be in person . It will only take about an hour.
It will be in Mathews Theatre A (the place we had our very first lecture) as well as streamed online like normal.
Filling out MyExperience is one of the most helpful things you can do for the teaching team here in COMP1531. It would really mean a lot if you could just take 5 minutes to fill it in. The information is extremely useful for us in understanding how we're doing and where we need to focus attention.
We really need to hit 50% completion of the survey at a minimum for the results to be useful :)
⚠️ ALSO!‼️ For every % that we score over 50% I will add 1 extra minute onto the final exam!! A quick example summary below is:
|MyExperience completion %||Exam Length (hours:minutes)|
Some key updates and reminders for you:
Iteration 3 is due on Friday of week 10. Super soon. Good luck - you'll figure it out.
We will be running the leaderboard on the Monday, Wednesday, Friday of week 10.
Have a great weekend - so close! 1 week to go until the bulk of it's over :)
