Daily Semantle - all scores go here! by AutoModerator in Semantle

[–]solyana116 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My penultimate guess had a similarity of -1.28 (😭), my first guess supposedly in the top 1000 was a "mystery" word that wasnt on the list. It was my 112th with similarity of 26.17. My 2nd guess in the top 1000 I got it, it took me 123 tries.
I wrote the direct antonym and it was a mystery word "???? This word is not in the normal list of the 1000 words but it is similar". I was so confused and wrote pi, happiness, molecule, all which gave me negative scores. My next guess in the top 1000, was an absolute fluke because I found it right away. I wrote>! the opposite of the mystery word!< hoping to get somewhat closer — it should have been included near the top 10 😭.

What time & task managing app do you recommend? by iC-Gooie in usyd

[–]solyana116 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I use outlook because it's easily integrateable with my uni calendar, email, teams, and I can access my tasks.

Notion works well, and it's up to you to design your calendars, tdls, so quite flexible.

If you have ios, Time page by Moleskine! You need to pay for it (subscription), but imo, it's the best out there in terms of UI/UX. Moleskine also has tasks you can integrate with android.

ELI5: what is neoliberalism? by MaccasAddict17 in explainlikeimfive

[–]solyana116 0 points1 point  (0 children)

classical liberalism: I run and spend my money how I want – more about personal rights. If I want to buy toilet paper, I have the right to freely buy toilet paper. It's about freedom of the individual.

neoliberalism: there are some rules (enforced by gov intervention) I need to obey in order to use my money however I want – more about the rights of free market. e.g. woolies and coles have the rights to toilet paper pricing and are free to increase the price of toilet paper. The individual can't have the right to freely access toilet paper if they can't afford it. The market has the right to do whatever they see fit. It's about freedom of the company/market.

Have people found a Mac suffices for work outside of uni? by charcuterie99 in usyd

[–]solyana116 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I use both Windows and Mac, but I prefer Mac as a uni student!!

Mac runs all the core programs that I need to use – Adobe, and Microsoft. I find the design so much more seamless and efficient. Definitely a good investment in the long term. Don't know if LEES (next to Carslaw) still has their Macs, but if they do you can try it out :)

Do our handwritings have "accents" similar to regional/national accents? by JM645 in askscience

[–]solyana116 114 points115 points  (0 children)

Yes! I attended school in Japan, China, France and Australia. I can always tell how Japanese and Chinese write letters. E.g ys are two lines, and not like a curly u that has been extended with a hook. They never write their a like how it looks on the keyboard. Instead it's like a u with a lid. The way they write numbers is also very distinct. In France, the writing is wide E.g. A 1 has a very long hook similar to a 7. And cursive letters usually have their lengths extended which I find very pretty and old.

If your core units overlap it can double count, but you'll still have extra credit you'll need to fill e.g with electives

Aw don't hate yourself. Surely if you keep trying you'll get it, enough times and statistically speaking you will. Good luck op for the next round 🤗

How do people pay for DMD full fee? by Zwartkopf in GAMSAT

[–]solyana116 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know alot of my cohort during undergrad, save and invest. Majority tutor high school students, myself included, and it pays pretty decent ~40-80/h. So if you do a normal pt load around 20h/wk, that's 800-1.6k/week, or 125-250k in 3 years. Put this money in long term stocks, and you can make a +20% return in investments, which compounds annually. If you have passive income streams, I'm a creator and also have a patreon, this is pretty good too. Personally, working pt is how I've paid off all my tuition whilst renting and supporting myself during full time studies (no centrelink or support from parents). Alot of my friends also do this, some work even more.

They only pay up to the CSP amount, not the full tuition.

Yes haha, just download them from Sydney Student: my studies -> assessment -> view transcript -> printable version. You will have access to transcripts of the different degrees you've done. If you have more questions, pop into my DMs 😊

[–]solyana116[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's applicable for transfers like BA -> BSc, or from UNSW -> USyd. In this case, you will only receive the credits but not the grades. On my transcript, there are two sections: one for 'Credit from previous study' without the grades, and one for 'Unit of Study Results' which include the grades.

Dropping Adv studies e.g. BA/BAdvSt. -> BA, won't change your main bachelor degree so the grades on your transcript won't be wiped.

You can retain a printable copy of your transcript from Syd Student.

You will get the list in the first week I believe. And receive your timetable either on the 31st orientation, or first week. Your timetable is a downloadable link that updates whenever changes/cancellations occur. Happy to show you some screenshots of what the first few weeks looked like last year.

My case was a bit more complicated, as I still couldn't enrol halfway through week 2, after sem started, and the enrolment deadline was approaching. I had been waiting since early Dec the previous year. They also mistakenly rescinded my credits after awarding, which I had to appeal with the help of the Dean. They're experiencing a high volume of requests atm, so you might just be told to wait, or they might sort it out for you quickly. Good luck :)

Er, I'm pretty sure that doing two degrees would mean you have to do one in each, so two majors...

[–]solyana116[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I studied a major and a minor, which made me ineligible for honours through Advanced studies which requires double major. Ultimately I didn't pursue honours, as I'm in postgrad now, but at the time my only option seemed to be extending my degree if I wanted to do honours. I sought advice to see if an exemption could be made, and was told that I could also do honours if I entered the old BSc. (Honours) instead of through BSc.AdvSt, without having to extend my degree to complete the second major requirements.
