  • Hey Riproot.

    If you don't mind me asking, why do 2nd year med science units tend to scale down significantly? I'm trying to explain it to my father who wants to know the reason as to why this is so. Was planning to ask tutors or lecturers and such but I can only imagine them giving a biased response or something. Thanks mate.
    Could you help me in my essays :( i dunno where i am going wrong and my teachers are not providing ways in which i can better myself! So please could you help me! I can send a sample of an essay i wrote so you get an idea of what im lacking through a private message. (though you need to clear it out as its full and wont let me send you and private messages) Thankyou :)
    Dude, I was reading the junior maths handbook and it said you can take 5 junior units. Do u know how this works? What I mean is, if you take 15cp junior maths, wouldn't you end up with 147 cp in total, and I thought you couldn't take more than 144cp. Wouldnt that extra 3 cp not be available for HECS
    I've been noticing you around the usyd engineering page a lot and I wondered if you could spare me some advice. Anyways, I'm in year 11 at the moment and I want to pursue engineering as a career. However, I do not have any knowledge regarding Ext 1 Maths AT ALL! So if I plan to enrol into engineering at usyd, is it recommended that I take up a bridging course? P.S I do 2U maths.

    Thanks!
    (Btw, I had to wall post this because your inbox was full!)
    I wouldn't say it's artsy just has a lot of content. Of course I'm doing physics degree now, because i like astro. Not all physics is bad, just electromagnetism.
    hmm, so what kinda percentile would I need for that kind of weighted score?
    what was ur percentile if u dont mind me asking? ( pm if u want)
    cheers brah
    I doing PHYS1500 this sem. Changed from PHYS1003 at last minute, and decided to only do 18cp not 24cp. Will still do at least 6cp phys next year to fill units maybe. Im only taking 18cp a semester from now on (its easier). Yeah, she just thought it was a bad idea to do arts electives, idk. I may have given the wrong impression when I said that. Only cause im not an artsy person at all. Im not stressed, I take multivitamins. they help ;) I already have one fail on my transcript because of human bio (long story). I have to see how this semester pans out, then I get to work out what to take next year. I think its better for me to major in two science areas tho.
    continued:
    I wanted to do a language for a year at one point (like by taking arts electives) and mums like no.
    I didnt think you could second major in an arts major in a BSc? im trying to work it so I can possible double major in maths and phys, but if i can only stand one year of phys, then idk.

    Yea, im gonna take some pure math subs like algebra, and differential geometry, which is all about 4D stuff and above, which i already know a bit about and that stuff blows my mind haha.

    I was considering uts, and im sure their maths degree is ok, but unless you do it thru BSc as a major, you do it in BMathComp or BMathFin (together with finance (yuck) or IT)
    I like maths, and im a little interested in astronomy, but at this point I have really no clue, which I think is because I haven't done enough subs yet to know what I enjoy. I am even considering Civil Engineering after this degree, but im not sure about Sydneys engineering faculty, I have read bad things haha. If I don't do civil, I may end up doing a graduate diploma in meteorology, but you have to go to melbourne to do that at the national bureau of meteorology, and it needs a math degree with two years worth of physics. I have thought about computing stuff, which is why im taking some it units.

    Im part of scisoc. I actually don't do anything with it though, haha (still extremely shy with a large no. of people)
    Honestly, i wasnt enjoying uni last semester and the thought of going back depresses me greatly. Yeah I have hecs debt now for two subjects i withdrew from after the census. If stats wasnt more useful for me id be taking MATH1004. Mum keeps wanting me to do part time, but i don't really want to still be doing my degree in 4 years. Yeah I want to major in applied maths, cause it sounds more interesting than pure. This is why I want to take some physics, because it basically is applied maths.
    If the travel eventually proves to be too much for me, my only alternative is uws bsc, but im not sure how good that is for maths and phys, and you can only sub-major in phys.

    Also, you might be interested, unless you already know:
    I read somewhere that uws med is based of the same course and content as the old umelb med. This i didn't know. This is a good thing, considering umelb is number 1 in aus.
