    Do you actually need physics for chemistry at unsw?

    I looked at the major outline for chemistry in handbook and it says for stage 1 a physics course is required (ie-PHYS1111)

    http://www.handbook.unsw.edu.au/unde...HEMA13970.html

    yet none of subjects later on require a physics course as a prerequisite

    Is it required to declare a major in chemistry or just a meme?

    It's assumed

    There aren't any prerequisities (to my knowledge)

    Just do a chemistry bridging course or a first intro chem course in first yr uni

    It might not be a prereq but it's still a core course so you have to do it. A lot of chemistry incorporates concepts from physics so I guess that's why it's important.
