CALCULATION OF HONOURS WAM
The Honours WAM (eswHWAM) is calculated by averaging the following fourth year (level 4000) education units (weighted 2), fifth year (level 5000) education units (weighted 3), the honours preliminary unit (weighted 4) and the honours dissertation unit (weighted 6): EDSE4042, EDSE4046, EDSE4044, Teaching Area Units 3A and 3B, EDSE5*** (Fifth year option unit), EDUF4020, EDUF4021.
Please note: the above calculation is only applicable for students who commenced the honours pathway in 2015. Students who commenced the honours pathway in 2014 must use the HWAM calculation from the 2014 faculty handbook.
