  1. English language requirement with IGCSE

    Hi,

    I completed both IGCSE Literature (English) and IGSE First Language English in Vietnam. However, on the Melbourne University website, it stated that "Applicants who have completed their GCSE […] in the United Kingdom can satisfy the University's English language requirements by achieving […] a grade of B in GCSE English."(https://futurestudents.unimelb.edu.au/admissions/entry-requirements/language-requirements)

    I'd like an explanation as to why completing the same system and sitting the same exam paper in a different country is any less valid to completing GCSE English in the UK. After having spoken on the phone with a Melbourne University representative, Mitchell, even he could…

        • Changing lecture capture software

          Why not try using Panopto for lecture capture rather than Echo360

            • Paying by Crdit Card - is broken

              I have paid via this method a few times in the past. This time has been rubbish. I tried now x5 times with a new Credit Card (have had now for 2 months and no problems elsewhere. Looks like Combank is the problem here. Then I have just tried to pay via a Credit Card I have used in the past. Again rejected. Think someone should look into this. I will now have to find another way. Called UniMelb last week, told it was my new Credit Cards problem, called Credit Car company, they could not see anything from their…

                    • Even the feedback system is convoluted and impractical

                      Every part of the stop 1 process since I started at Melbourne has been ridiculously frustrating. I've been to stop 1 many times now and each time there has been a new reason for me to question why I thought UniMelb would be better than my past universities (JCU and Monash). I have got conflicting information when I asked if it was possible to go on exchange, I was told that my winter subject meant I couldn't do 4 subjects in Sem 2, which turned out not to be true as they were basing it on last years dates. No…
