    Maths at Usyd vs UNSW

    Honestly they're both equal in terms of teaching quality. However, the general rep for UNSW is a lot better (not sure why, this is just generally among students they will choose UNSW over USYD for those courses unless they get a scholarship for USYD).

    Advice for ATAR >95
