Timetable Checking & Help Thread 2010
Official 2010 Timetable Checking and Help Thread

Following the success of our 2009 thread which had over 970 replies, here is a new thread for 2010.

If you have timetable questions and would like to have it checked by other MI members, post it here.

Please post your timetable as an image (see attached example), a 95/2000 EXCEL fie, or as a 95/2000 WORD DOC (see attached Word Doc you can use as a template). Try not to upload '07 formats (DOCX) as some users are still using the perfectly good old versions of MS Office

First click the POST REPLY button to create a new reply to this thread, and then click the MANAGE ATTACHMENTS button which will pop up a window and let you browse for a file and attach it to your reply.

TIMETABLE TEMPLATE
: Use the attached Word Doc as a template to start working out your timetable!

I would also like you add that you can also upload an excel file if you find it any easier to make a timetable on that program. It has to be xls, which is the 2007 version I believe.

Well, I guess I'll get the ball rolling haha. I don't know what else I can actually do with my schedule though.

I would use excel but my friend's computer doesn't have excel (which is strange... haha) :]

hey cool thread, im going into first year life sci and it would be really helpful if someone could take a look at my term 1 schedule to see how it is and give me some feed back.

the one thing i don't get is psych 1x03. this course is apparently web modules and stuff, so will there ever be in class things, so do i need to put it into my schedule?

thanks

During the schedules psych timeslots you will be discussing the material with your peers and TA as well as receive and hand in assignments.

You might want to check if you can move psych to Monday to fill in one of those two 1 hour timeslots. It's up to you though.

cool thx, umm i was just wandering some other things about the schedule.

1) first of all some people are saying to have labs on a Friday, thus u get weekends to do the lab report. are these reports really big or can i finish them up in the time which i have there, so over night.

2) are tutorials really intense, as in are they like cores where the profs lecture you, or are they more hands on and easy to get through. so in that case having 3 tutorials and 2 cores on the same day, which i have on Friday, isn't all that bad?

thx

If 4/5 of students can finish their labs on time then I don't see the problem.

Tutorials depend on the course. Some tutorials are just the TA talking about questions/material, other tutorials you actually have to do work and presentations.

Sorry for the double post, but while in the process of making my timetable I created a mock timetable template for whoever would like to use it. I liked Feona's template from her "How to Make a Mock Timetable" article, so I based a lot of it off of that.

Note: I didn't include evening hours but those can be easily included if you need them. Also, I included a lab column but if you don't need it for your program that can be easily deleted, as well.

Triple post... sorry

I've made up my mock timetable. I wanted good teachers for my courses so I was left with little options to tailor the times to my absolute liking. Any advice would be appreciated, though. =)

here are my two mock schedules.
I'm debating between v.1 and v.2 of term 2
Is it alright if I schedule a tutorial at the same time as a class??
