The FinalGrade field has what I expect to be your final mark for COMP1911.
Hopefully it contains a mark >= 50 and a grade of PS, CR, DN or HD. If so (provisionally) you
have met all hurdles and other requirements and have passed COMP1911 - congratulations!!!
Provisional marks may change, for example when calculation errors are discovered but so far I've never changed a provisional PS to a FL.
If your "FinalGrade" field contains the grade " WD " this indicates your COMP1911 mark and grade is yet to be determined.
This may be because:
1) I have withheld the marks of a small number of students due to concerns that their assignment contains work that is not their own. If this is the case, you would have received an email from me already.
2) You did not sit for the exam, have supplied documentation and have officially applied to sit the supplementary exam and have organised this with me already.
3) If the field "FurtherAssessment " contains the value " 1 " then its because you've been being offered the opportunity to sit a supplementary exam because you have not met the requirements to pass COMP1911 but are being another opportunity to meet these requirements and pass COMP1911. If you do not take this opportunity you will not pass COMP1911. Note in this case you can not raise your mark beyond 50 no matter how good your performance on the supplementary exam is. A successful supplementary exam will allow you to pass!
Some further information:
COMP1911 marks were scaled up slightly. Your marks for the individual exam questions are visible to you with your assignment & lab marks. I don't release exam questions or answers (yours or mine). Your answers were all run through a series of tests. These included tests you hadn't seen.
Supplementary Exam Date:
Tentative Time and Location: Friday 14th July 10:45 - 1pm
I will confirm this soon.
If you got an HD or a DN you are automatically eligible for the bridging course. If you received a CR and are keen, register and send me an email as well.
I will release some lecture material before it starts. In the meantime, feel free to brush up on structs, pointers and malloc!
Here are some video resources made by cse tutors on those topics.
Students going on to do COMP1521
Even if you are not going to do the bridging course but you are going on to do COMP1521, it is a good idea to revise structs, pointers and malloc! And maybe even take a look at the linked list notes I post for the bridging course to get a sneak peak at one of the important topics you will be doing.
Here are some video resources made by cse tutors on these topics.
The issue with the cse cgi servers has been resolved and you should not have any more issues with this now.
Some students have been having issues accessing course material. This is happening on and off, so if you are having the issue try again. Make sure you close your browser, or refresh the page.
We are looking into this and hope to have it resolved ASAP
Have a look at the exam skeleton. Reading through the exam instructions before the exam and asking questions about them now will make the exam less stressful.
Remember you can copy and paste things such as input examples and/or submission commands from the exam instruction text by highlighting them with the left mouse button and using the middle button to paste to your terminal or editor etc.
If you end up with an infinite loop and you can't stop it, minimise the window (to stop it distracting you) , right click and open up a new terminal and keep going from there.
The exam states that passing the autotests does not guarantee full marks. This is true. However it is most likely a better use of time to get complete as many questions as you can and getting them to pass as many of the autotests as you can and then going back and writing your own tests if you have finished and have time.
Please check your marks. If you have a TotalLabMark of ? then you need to contact your tutor as you have submitted labs that have not been marked yet. Do this ASAP.
If your tutor has not marked your ass2 yet, please be patient, they should be ready soon.
In the meantime you check the automarking by running the following in the same directory of the CWords.c file you submitted
1911 autotest -a ~cs1911/public_html/17s1/assignments/ass2/tests
Next Week Tuesday (20th) 11:30-12:30
Next Week Thursday (22nd) 11:30-13:30
The questions from the week 13 prac exam, their solutions and the week 13 lab solutions are all up under the week 13 lab section. Try to do the exercises BEFORE you look at the solutions.
There are also a few more revision questions (with answers) in the revision code section in the lecture notes. The first we started in lectures involving files and strings and one we did not get to with structs
Other good revision is just to go over tutorial and lab questions, doing them as programming questions without looking at the answers first.
Let me know if you think there are any issues.
Last night a messed something up and some submissions were not run. Here is a mini round run today at 1pm, just so you can check if yours is running ok.
I will run another one tonight at around 11pm and then the actual real competition after the deadline on friday night.
If you have any questions email me :)
This has been released.
The main part of the lab next involves a 1 hour practice prac exam (worth lab marks only). If you go to the week 13 lab specification, there are some revision exercises there if you wish to do them in advance of your lab as practice for the practice exam. They are not worth anything and you do can not submit them.
There is also an advanced lab exercise involving malloc that you should do if you want an A for the lab.
and talk to your tutor in the lab if there are any issues. You should not have any labs with a '?'. This means you submitted the lab using give, but that it has no mark entered yet. A '.' means you did not submit it.

I have set up submissions for the bonus stage. There are no autotests on submission, but I will run trial competition runs of all the submissions on the 31st and the 1st and give a link to the results, so if you submit by then you can get feedback on how your AI goes. The real competition l will be run soon after the assignment is due. So late submissions will not be accepted for this stage of the assignment.
I have also added some information about signal handlers on the assignment 2 spec under the bonus stage section. You may or may not choose to use signal handlers in the bonus stage. But there is some information there in case you would like to.
I have added the revision example we did in the lecture on wednesday to the "Revision" code link on the lectures page
Tomorrow in the last half hour or so, we will do some revision that will help with assignment 2 stage 0 input handling.
On monday we will have a look at some sample solutions to assignment 1.
In the directory where your youChew.c file is type

Hi everyone. I have had lots of students asking me about COMP1921. It does not exist anymore and you should COMP1521 instead. COMP1911 a pre-requisite for COMP1521, so you do not need to do the bridging course.
If you are interested in doing the bridging course anyway, I will be emailing everyone after the result for COMP1911 have been finalised. You must do well enough in COMP1911 to be allowed to do it. I will give you more details about that soon.
The bridging course will be running the week before session 2 begins.
Joanna's catch up class will be held this week on friday, same location as usual. Other students in friday classes who missed their week 7 lab can also attend.
Due to popular demand, we have added a consultation tomorrow from 4-6 in flute.
This means there are no labs or tutorials (unless you have a catch up class scheduled from good Friday). There are still lectures and consultations, and of course and assignment due! There are no consultations on the tuesday, Anzac Day public holiday.
As well as the usual consultations , there will also be a consultation on thursday 11 - 1pm this week in Tabla lab (K17 G07) .

There are no consultations on good friday or easter monday. They have been rescheduled and their times and locations can be found on the consultation hours pages. Please check the details if you are interested.
This friday is a public holiday so if you are in a friday tutorial/lab you won't have your normal class on this week. Catch up classes have been scheduled for:
F09B Jeremy: Tuesday Week 7 (11th April) 4-7pm Rooms will be announced soon
F09A Dillon: Thursday Week 7 (13th April) 12-3 Rooms will be announced soon

Feel free to attend a different tutorial/lab (for week 7 only), if you can't make your catch up class.
Hello everyone. I have added a few more autotests to test a few of the illegal input cases I would expect your program for assignment 1 to be able to handle. The reference implementation has now been updated to reflect the error handling I would expect as well.
We will discuss error checking with scanf and what kinds of error checking we want for assignment 1 in tomorrows lecture, along with finishing off 2d arrays and starting a new topic! Depending on how we go for time, we probably won't get up to doing much or any revision in the second hour.
The echo recording from Monday has finally arrived! Sorry for any inconvenience.
Tomorrow's consultation is not on. Will be back to normal next week. Email me if there are any urgent issues. Thanks :)
Hi Everyone. You can access the lecture videos by the new link. It involves logging into moodle and is the only thing we will be using moodle for this session. Sorry for any difficulties or delays.
Welcome to COMP1911!
You've probably been told to access your course through UNSW's Moodle system, but most CSE courses don't use Moodle.
Have a look around the website. We are still in the process of adding resources, but so far there is a Course Outline and Tutorials and Labs for the first week. Remember that Tutorials, Labs and Lectures all start in Week 1. Your first tutorial and lab will be a nice easy introduction to your friendly tutors, CSE and the labs. Check the timetable for the times and locations of your class.
I look forward to seeing you on Monday at 11am for our first lecture , or for our web stream students, I will email you when the first lecture gets uploaded and let you know how to access it.
