    1st yr enrolment help. What are free electives? How many lvl 1 courses should I do?

    For background I’m doing B sci (adv) at Unsw

    What are “free electives”? Are free electives level 1 courses? How are they different from normal science electives and do I have to do them? Should I do them? What are the benefits of doing free electives?

    To my knowledge I can do up to 72 uoc of lvl 1 courses. With the broadness of the courses I’ve chosen (bc I’m not certain of what major I’ll chose) , I’ll probably end up doing exactly 72 uoc of level 1 courses including my 12uoc of gen ed. Is it unusual to do so many level one courses and be doing some level 1 courses in my second year as well? What happens if I go over the maximum? Will I be graduating later than the expected date? Also, I’m not including any “free electives”.

    To sum up my questions..
    what’s the difference between electives, free electives and general ed?
    Are free electives necessary?
    Should I be trying not to do too many level 1 courses?

    Thanks in advance
