Hi All, just curious and looking for study mates, what subjects are you all taking next (obviously waiting on results to finalize), but what do you hope to take this year?

I'm hoping to take the second research module, Risk Management and Strategic Management. :)

Hi,

Has anyone completed the online Assessments for "Assignment 1 + 2" due this Friday?

What sort of questions does it entail?
Ricci Rich
Hi everyone!

Compliments of the new season!

I have a question relating to the TurnitIn similarity score, wrt Assignment 3, it looks like the majority of the penalty comes from my "Definition of Technical Terms" section (11%).

As I understand it, definition by nature is exactly that, definition, therefore I have copied them as there were given.

Please let me know if I need to re-define common definition of terms used in my area of research.

Also, must we give reference to the definition?

What are your thoughts on this?
User Deleted
User Deleted hi Ricci, as for myself, i would try to define according to my own understanding of the word, but if the word is difficult in such a way that i cant use any other words besides the used words, i would switch the words around. So it will be the exact same words but in a re-arranged order :-) and i got away with turnitin.

Has anyone bought the 3G data bundle from Unisa ? Paid and received invoice from Unisa financing department on 10th November ... But to date the data bundle has not been activated... So angry and upset ... Endless calling back and forth between Vodacom and I reveal its unisa's problem and not Vodacom ... But unisa won't answer their phones or return emails. Has anyone experienced this before ? Any contact details in any department ? So upset I want to cry...

Hi all,

I came across this cool Android App.

Doing research and writing a paper can be tiring, but it always seems like doing the references and bibliography is the worst part. So boring and too easy to screw up. Yet it’s just as important as any other part of your paper. RefMe can help make the task a lot simpler though. Often, you can just take a scan of the book or journal’s bar code and get a nicely formatted bibliography entry, in one of 6,500 referencing styles.

Get RefME premium with this link https://www.refme.com/sign-up/7c96dfc6d1bb3ad0b8543de5641da4dc via @getrefme

Once you get the references you need, you can email them to yourself or export them to Evernote. Of course there’s the option to save your references to the RefMe website where you do many more things with the information. If you’re looking for good sites to find references, check out our 6 top reference sites to write a winning research paper.

Hi Everyone

I would like to just find out about how the plagiarism will be handled for this assignment. Because the research problems and questions will be very similar if not identical to assignment 1. Will this be excluded ? Does have anyone have any knowledge?
Nico Loubser
Does anyone have an idea how many words/pages we should aim for doing our research design?

Hi

Here is a document that looks vaguely promising in helping with the research design... I am struggling a bit but at least there is still time left :-)

This isn't a direct HPCOS question... but regarding registering for the second year of honours.... can anyone who was a student last year explain? How does the registration process work? Do we apply again ? / Register in the new year for subjects we want to take in our second year? Are our details already carried over as active students or do we need to apply again? Thank you!!

Daniel Wentzel God willing, I will be doing INF4883 next year. However, there are many students soldiering through the module this year. Fatima, can bare witness to that and most certainly provide you with more insight.
