    I dropped Maths in Year 11, will I be able to survive Science at Uni?

    I've always been terrible at Maths and was relieved to drop it ASAP, but now I heard that 4-unit maths is compulsory for the Science course. Am I doomed?

    Thanks, all responses are greatly appreciated .

    Ps. Also didn't take Chemistry...RIP

    Well, whether you survive or not falls second to the fact that it's compulsory meaning you can't do it anyway.

    I don't think there are any courses that will require you to do 4u maths in uni but I suppose doing 4U maths gives you an advantage over non 4U kids, that said just bc you didnt do 4u maths doesnt mean you'll be doomed, you just need to work your arse off and ask for assistance when u need it

    It wouldnt be mandatory but it sure can be assumed knowledge for some courses

    Physics and (of course) Maths require good maths. Other sciences not so much. But don't think because you didn't get it at school you won't get it at uni (and vice versa). Hard work and determination are key.
