    Im planning to do commerce (actuarial) next year and i dropped economics just before the hsc year. Although i heard they brush over the stuff learned in the hsc in 1st year, i dun want 2 walk in completely unprepared as I only have a very flimsy memory of the economics prelim course. Would looking through HSC economics text books by dixon and riley et al be an good idea or are there any uni books you would recommend?

    I wouldn't bother - its better going in without knowing much, because it encourages u to actually learn, and not be lazy and complacent. I know a lot of ppl that didnt do HSC economics in high school, but got HD's in Microeconomics, whereas ppl that did economics became complacent, didnt study, and therefore failed.

    yes of course!

    u can add law yes..but u have to transfer to it thru UAC...and u have to do well (since Law has high cutoffs)
    if u do arts, there is no difference, u still have to get certain grades to get a Law transfer regardless of wat degree u take

    I'm thinking of doing a BCom/BSoc Sci, next year. Thing is i'll probably won't make it, My UAI this yr was 95.9, so I'll most likely miss the cutoff for BCom, Now if I do BEco/BSoc Sci first year, are my chances of transferring high?, I heard that its like 50%UAI and 50% Uni grades when they take tranfers into account. What GPA am I looking at in order to be able to transfer, And do I even have a decent chance of transferring into the BCom....
    Thanks

    With a BCom/BArts or BCom/BSocSci, u can double major in Commerce and single major in Arts (3 majors all up)
    but in a BCom/BScience, or BCom/BEngineering, u can only do a single major for each degree

    Hopefully the cutoff stays below 96, but anyway, yes u have a very good chance of transferring provided u get a Distinction average in first year - and yes its 50% uai, 50% GPA - a GPA of 6.0 is exactly distinction average...so with ur UAI im guessing a GPA of at least 5.75 would be the absolute minimum u should look at

    Hmmm read somewhere the requirements for a transfer into law perhaps (?) at Syd Uni was 50/50 (UAI/GPA) 25/75 NSW. Off the topic a bit, but seeing the 50/50 for nsw Minai you mentioned is only for the Commerce/Economics Faculty? Just need to clarify this

    The 50/50 thing is universal for all uni's, its the standard UAC uses when u apply to them for transfer

    no, u can only combine into what they let u - check your UAC guide

    out of all 3 core subjects in 1st year u have to do - accounting is probably the least boring. Economics was 'zzzzz' and Maths was just annoying
