#76 Exam Results: Semester 2, 2011

Posted by ryanish on 27 November 2011 - 18:51

Apparently I did very well, as Unisa says my results are outstanding :D

#3 Welcome guys!

Studying sucks.

It's not easy. It's even worse when you're studying part-time while working. It takes energy when you have none, enthusiasm when you're least prepared to give it, and mental acrobatics at odd hours of the night when the rest of the human race is fast asleep.

But we still do it, don't we? Because although studying may suck, the ultimate outcome is (eventually) worth every second of pain we all go through to get there. So to make the process a little easier on all of us, we think there's a lot to be gained by each of us sharing our ups, downs, lightbulb moments and hair-pulling tantrums. It's amazing how much easier a topic is to grasp when someone else puts it in plain English on the forum. And it's such a release when you're able to vent your plans to tear your textbook into ten million pieces and scatter them out at sea thanks to your latest mental breakdown.

The point is: make yourself at home. Spread out on our couches, lean on your fellow students and give as much as you receive. Your years of study will fly by a lot quicker and your marks will probably show a decent increase for it too.

A few rules to play by while you're here, please:
  • Don't swear. We've all been there but it'll create a more peaceful atmosphere if we keep things clean.
  • Don't be rude to other users. Fighting isn't worth depleting your time or energy for.
  • Don't post advertising or spam. Any genuine goods for sale should be listed in the Classifieds.
  • Don't post porn or other adult material. There are loads of other forums for that - this isn't one of them.
  • Don't post study guides or book transcripts. Copyright needs to be respected.
  • Don't use hate speech of any kind. Racism, sexism and all the other bad -isms are not welcome.
  • Do use this forum as often as you can. That's what real study buddies do.
Enjoy :)

#549 What is the avg waiting time for Email or SMS responses?

Posted by ryanish on 3 December 2011 - 20:04

Dear Unisa, can you please give us an indication on how long we should expect to wait for a reply by email or SMS? I have been waiting the whole week. Can't you start a number/queue system so that we can check where we are in the process? At this point I don't know if you're going to take another 1 day or 100 days to get back to me :(

#3753 GREAT feeling to be posting in THIS section!

So I've just been filling in my graduation day docs for 19 June - guests, academic dress order form, photographs - and it dawned on me that I'm a full on graduate. What a fantastic feeling :)

Sisyphus and others, join me in celebrating your upcoming graduation ceremonies!

XXX, just think ... one more semester and you'll be done :) But I think, if you're anything like some of us, you're going to want to continue after that too ;) But at least your DEGREE will be in the bag!

#3634 Who's registering for what tomorrow?

Posted by BerniceEL on 3 December 2012 - 21:44

Jaseyboy and Sisyphus

The prerequisite is two of the exams I wrote this Oct/Nov and my thinking is that I couldn't have failed both. Soooo if I failed one then I will quickly register for it again this semester. I'm not sure how that will work out as I'm new at this ... but I thought I might as well give it horns before the novelty wears off. LOL :)

#3474 Anyone with me??

Good luck with the exam.

#3147 Should we help these people?

Posted by Dodabby on 3 July 2012 - 09:57

I do not mind helping at all, but quite honestly two days/ one week / even two weeks before an exam, I just don't have time. I am heads down up to 6 weeks before an exam, i start studying very early and find it unfair of people to expect me to give up my study time to help them, when they clearly cannot be bothered.

#1993 Has anyone ever looked down on you for saying you're studying at Unisa?

Posted by Psyentist on 9 January 2012 - 16:38

Well I studied towards a different degree and never completed it through Stellenbosch University. My friends think I should do some modules through Unisa and return there, but I love the independence and being able to make money at the same time. A Unisa degree is just as valid as a similar one from a "go to class" University. But generally speaking if I was a boss of a company I would choose to hire a UNISA graduate as I will know I am getting a person with good time management skills and discipline and perserverance. At University I was playing around for the most part, but studying through UNISA has taught me a lot about responsibility, so I am proud to be a UNISA student and if anyone ever insults me I will tell them that.

#3721 Who's registering for what tomorrow?

Posted by xxx on 20 December 2012 - 13:06

Registration finally done, after the joy of two phone calls to Unisa, both answered with such enthusiasm (please read that in a sarcastic tone). Very annoying when the staff gives me crappy answers to my problem and doesn't look into the actual problem!

A lady in accounts had to help me with my registration, but at least it's sorted out now and I'm ready for another semester!

Glad you're registered now. I also had some problems, but it's a relief to know that it's done now and we can carry on :)
Good luck with your studies in 2013!

#3394 Feedback on optional workshop

Posted by Anzel on 12 September 2012 - 19:26

Wow! Thanks for the help, Wilma! I'll really try and convince them to 1) load more than one exam paper to work through, and 2) to load it earlier... :D

#2009 Dear Unisa - Your communication system sucks!

Posted by Anzel on 10 January 2012 - 12:06


I have been batteling to get ANY response from UNISA since middle December 2011. I've sent numerous emails and sms's and called all the numbers on the list of Unisa Staff Assistance and Student Help Desk document, MORE THAN ONCE, EVERY DAY FOR THE LAST WEEK. Nobody answers your calls, or the lines are completely dead or goes straight to voicemail. What is the use of publishing this document, if nobody attached to the numbers answers their damn phones? How are we as students supposed to sort out our queries? I dont live near Pretoria and our UNISA branche over here is even more hopeless...

If this carries on, UNISA will lose a lot of credibility and students. They better start pulling up their socks...

Very unhappy student
