• Discrepancies between WebCMS and myUNSW Marks

    Posted by Nick Patrikeos 🐾 Thursday 19 May 2022, 10:48:25 AM.

    Hi everyone,

    If you find that there is a difference between the course mark in your results email and the final mark in WebCMS from when we released marks the other day - the course mark in your results email is correct.

    We made a slight error in summing up the marks to display to you on WebCMS meaning that the final value was 3 marks higher than it should have been. We have rectified this issue and if you check your marks in WebCMS now they should be consistent with your results in myUNSW. None of your raw sprint or portfolio marks have changed or had any errors.

    We're really sorry about this - this probably disappoints a few of you :( Please reach out if you have any further concerns and enjoy the rest of your holidays!

    Requirements and Design

    You've done a lot of reflection throughout the course - but we want you to take one last time to think and be proud of how far you've come and how much you've achieved - you have all come an exceptionally long way from being fresh out of COMP1531 and are now further down the road to becoming a Software Engineer. We're sure that many of you didn't even know you were capable of creating the services and applications you did before the course. Well done.

    The Sydney Opera House is an example of impressive physical design and architecture - elegant and long-lasting; and they are the characteristics of software we've sought to write in this course. Just in case you were still curious about the course photo :)

    So, where next?

    To get you excited, some courses that you will be taking as part of the SE degree in future...

    • COMP2511 - how to design and write beautiful software using design principles and patterns;
    • DESN2000 - user-centric design, requirements engineering, product management;
    • SENG2011 - formal reasoning about programs;
    • COMP3311 - databases! We know those!
    • SENG3011 - the third-year workshop where next year we will be diving into the brave new world of toolchains and DevOps!!

    Thank you for being an incredible cohort of students to work with both online and in person - you are all fantastic and will go on to do amazing things. Feel free to stay connected to us virtually via LinkedIn and please come and say hi if you see us on campus!

    Finally, we just want to give a shout out to your terrific mentors - Chinmay, Webster, Max, Tina, Giuseppe and Chris - without them this course couldn't function and they have put in many long hours supporting you and providing you with feedback.

    All the very best for T2 and beyond.
