    Some people are consigned to 5.2. Among them, some are potentially capable of 5.3, but for some reason, have not been performing so well and therefore the school thinks you should be doing 5.2. In many schools, 5.2 students are not intended for 2U Maths Advanced (so called). I had a 5.2 student who, in his 2nd half of Yr 10 decided he wanted to do better; he was determined to get himself into 5.3 which he eventually did. So he went on to do 2U in Yr 11. A lot also depends on your school. Some are very restrictive and do not provide a pathway to 5.3.

    If you have the latent ability for 5.3, you should try to bring yourself up to 5.3 and convince your maths teacher you can handle it. But you can still do this but don't have much time to waste.

    I do 5.3 maths at the moment, I just don't understand why it would be difficult for some of those students.

    So sorry - I thought you are doing 5.2.

    For those who can, 5.3 is not all that difficult. But from my experience, most 5.2 students I have are put on that stream for a good reason.
