    Question "Assumed Knowledge" for medical science?

    Hi everyone!


    Please bear with me, but I know nothing about university or how courses work.

    I am interested in doing something in medical science. Im currently doing Mathematics and Chemistry. These two are highlighted under "Assumed knowledge" for this course.

    However, I am practically failing chemistry, my teacher is horrible and i've lost all motivation to keep teaching myself all the concepts. I would rather drop the subject and convert them to study hours for my other subjects, which im going quiet good in.

    So, if I do end up dropping chemistry, will I not be able to do the course? also, would I be at a huge disadvantage?

    My current subjects are: Ancient History, Chemistry, Business Studies, Mathematics 2U, Extension History, SOR 1, English Advanced.

    Sorry if this doesnt make sense, im so lost

    Thanks!!


    also here is a link to the page im refering to https://www.science.unsw.edu.au/futu...edical_Science

    Prerequisite = Required
    Assumed= Recommended/ they assume that they will not be required to teach you the very basics
    I can barely see up and down and back again
    Despite what you believe I keep away from trouble
    If who I am today's a sign of where I'm going
    I'm ready to embrace
