Here we go again. Another student suddenly decides he wants to do Engineering. If Gelobro wants to do Engineering, with Gen Maths, he must be joking. If you are weak in Maths, you should forget Engineering; maybe Engineering has become a lot easier over the last 20 years. If you are not weak in Maths, how come you are doing only Gen Maths? General Maths is very elementary.
@Op: most reasonably good students have to work hard for 2 years for Maths Ext 1, and a lot harder for MX2. With just a General Maths, you expect to be able to cover all that in a Summer School or even a shorter Bridging course. Here again we have someone, with the best of intentions, providing you with encouragement. MX1 is only assumed knowledge, you are reminded. Used to be clearly spelt out what the Prerequisites for any given university course are. No longer! You know why? Because the universities have become irresponsible and dishonest. By not making MX1 (and with good grades) a prerequisite, the universities are no longer bound to exclude students like you from pursuing a course like Engineering. They want your enrolment. They need lots of students enrolled so they can have more fees to pay for the running of the uni. Do they care if you struggle and later wake up to the fact you are not good enough for the course.
And what makes you say you are good in Engineering? Are you doing Engineering Studies? Engineering Studies is no foundation for Engineering; Maths and Physics are.

I know HSC Physics is rather thin on the old topics of Mechanics (Statics, Dynamics - forces, equilibrium, etc) which have more direct relevance for Engineering (Civil, Mechanical, Aeronautic . . .). But Electricity in the HSC Physics should be relevant in Electrical and Electronic Engg.

Absolutely.
I have been urging year 10 students to do the foundation disciplines like Maths (not General, of course), Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics,( and English of course) I'm referring to foundation for the non-Humanities courses - depending on their interest and aptitude. Most kids in Yr 10 have no idea what course they want to do. So to keep as many doors open as possible, they should not opt for the various light-weight subjects. It is ridiculous - the NSW HSC offers a choice of over 50 subjects if not a hundred. very one focuses on the ATAR with little regard for the foundation subjects that will help them in their future courses at uni. Most choose the path of least resistance in their subject choices; they pick the easy subjects.

Apparently hsc physics focuses more on the history and philosophical side with very little calculations, not sure if this is true. Can somebody confirm?

I guess it wouldn't be that hard for OP to learn 2/3 unit maths.
I was a total spastic at mathematics in year 10 (was getting like 25%-35% in every exam), and i chose ext 1 mathematics for year 11.
I went tutoring and in 6 months learnt the whole 2 and 3 unit courses, and was getting 90+ in my exams. Plus I even self taught myself the 4-unit topics in a few months this year as well using the sydney grammar 4-unit textbook (im not doing 4 unit for my HSC). If OP spends a few hours each day in the 4 month break he should be able to learn the 2/3 unit courses.
Tbh they say required knowledge extension 1 and recommended extension 2 but do they even use maths in engineering eg: my brother never integrates anymore... They just type it into a computer...
