  • Simple Extensions to Arrive, Fit to Sit rule to be abolished from t1 2024

    Minutes from a prior meeting of the board detail a ‘powerful statement’ from undergraduate representative Zac Morris where he labelled the Special Considerations process as ‘broken’ and ‘hostile to students’.   Under Fit to Sit, UNSW considered the act of beginning an exam as a statement that the student is physically capable of completing it.   This…

    From the Satanic Panic to Democracy as we know it 

    Trigger warning: This article mentions sensitive topics including suicide and child abuse.   It may be hard to believe today, but in the 1980s to 1990s, the Satanic Panic was at its peak in Australia as well as the United States.
