    Maybe op wanted the easy path but fucked himself over the long term

    Yeah, I think OP was one of those people who picked general 'to get a good ATAR', i.e. they think they'll get 90+ for sure in it.

    But I feel for OP, our goals and interests can change dramatically over 2 years. Look at me, I use to kind of dislike math, but now I'm liking it more and more each day.

    Re: Mathematics for engineering

    Some of these comments are brutal...
    I guess the onus is on OP to study prelim + hsc 2U/3U and maybe 4U all out after HSC?
    Not all topics in 2/3/4u are used in engineering though, I believe.

    Re: Mathematics for engineering

    If you're really that interested in doing Engineering, then by all means do it. But having no knowledge in 2unit or ext 1 equivalent maths will make it heaps difficult as everyone has already posted. Some universities offer a lot maths support (UTS to name one) but you probably have to work much more than the person doing engo with thorough knowledge of 3 unit.

    Re: Mathematics for engineering

    I don't mean to revive this post, but for anyone who has the same issue and finds this post: it is very much possible, I only had to do an extra subject and had to do math during summer (at UTS at least).


    Don't be discouraged, just put the work in (but be scared so it makes you try as hard as I did).

    Holy shit you're good. :0
    Can someone also rate engo subjects + cs in order of difficulty and also in order of math involved although I assume that both would be somewhat proportional.
    Thank you

    They are both very math intensive

    Interested to learn more about what Engineering is like. Any of you guys currently studying it? I'm thinking about Civil atm.
